As I was sitting here, I read The Pioneer Woman and got inspired to blog again, so I am.
I feel frustrated that when I try and stand strong on something that's important to me, I seem to get many others who think I am too extreme. I know I can be extreme. I also know sometimes, I should be extreme in what I believe, but I don't want to disregard people in my extremeness. I am learning to understand my feelings, stand by my convictions, but also hear where other people are coming from, and see if I need to change; either my way of thinking, or the way I am presenting what I am thinking and feeling. I have learned that sometimes I honestly do need to step away from the situation, and get a calmer perspective. I used to think that was backing down, now I see it's wisdom, especially for me. How do you get someone to see something that you see so clearly and they are not seeing at all! I don't want to be the one not seeing at all as well.
I enjoy writing, so I will try and stay consistent, thanks for those of you who are joining me in this journey of life. I highly value support and relationships. Thanks.
