A fellow blogger is blogging EVERY day for the month of November. I am NOT going to try this. But it has got my mind thinking.
- Why do I take time to blog? (on the rare instances I do…..)
- What stops me from blogging more often?
- Do I have anything worth saying, writing?
- Does that matter if it is good for me??

“Without connection, addiction wins. Without confession, secrets fester.
Without love, indifference wins the day.”
Bah. So much I could say about this. So, I’ll try.
Connection – this is what I’ve been seeking over the last month(s). I spent the last year living in 900 sq ft with 7 other people – CLOSE QUARTERS. But we learned to love each other and share space and enjoy life. Since that community has disbanded, I find myself seeking ways to connect with people. Whether this is church or Skype or on the internet or via Skype/phone calls – I need people. And it’s true, without these people, it is easy for addiction to win – addiction to food, sloth, negative thoughts…..
Love – one of my least favorite topics… but it comes up all the time (we can unpack that in another post). But how true? The days and moments that I didn’t love, didn’t feel loved – are those that seem the most MEH. Apathy is easy… and disappointing. Love is tough…but rewarding, even if it’s small.
Is writing a way for me to connect? Maybe. Maybe not. I will continue to seek.
And with God’s help, I will continue to try and love and be loved.
