Brutal honesty

A friend of mine asked me today what motivated me to start blogging.  I have been thinking and struggling with that since I started.

Writing is cathartic.  In order to put words down on paper (or computer) takes thought.  It is easy for me to check into “coast” in life.  I watch the emotional break-downs of people on The Biggest Loser and wonder what it is in my life that keeps me here.  I think a lot of it is coasting.  It is easy to sit and watch other people’s lives.  It is easy to sit and watch the “reality shows” on tv and “get inspired” but yet sit and wait for next week’s show.

I want to be able to identify with people.  I know that I am not the only one with the issues that I have.  I want other people’s input and thoughts about my life.  If my life can help anybody else, I would love for that to happen as well.

But…all these things take honesty.  Didn’t quite rap my head around the fact that other people would really be reading this.  Other people whose opinions are different than mine.  Other people who have been a part of my life for a very long time. 

I pledge to be as honest as I can stand without causing ripples that I don’t want to cause. 
I welcome any comments, questions or thoughts about my posts or anybody else’s comments.  Please be involved in any way you feel comfortable with!
