It's what I love about relationships. Each one is a connection that changes and challenges and reaffirms me. I'm here on this planet with billions of people, I must be meant to know some of them, right? Out of all of the people alive right now, I only really know a few, which means those friends are even more special than one-in-a-million.
But that's all beside the point. This is about what my friend said to me this morning. It was an aside in the middle of a wandering, meandering conversation.
"By the way, you need to blog more."
I grimaced. I know. I want to. And then I confessed I haven't found a way to integrate blogging into my life, to successfully manage with my other activities and priorities. When I get a bee in my bonnet, I'm not terribly patient with the kids and I get too focused for too long on trying to make a post.
Very pointedly she said, "Not every blog has to be epic."
Then relief. No pressure. Like Facebook, I can just live, share, be real. I can be mediocre, which is a relief. And sometimes, I can be epic, which is exciting.
