It’s the day before #Reverb12 and I approach this year with much less planning than in years past. I haven’t looked at the website other than to register and I haven’t even looked at the other bloggers who are participating — yet. I am purely jumping in for the experience which is something I welcome with enormously exaggerated open arms. Without a doubt, writing every day will still be a challenge, but I hope it will end the month with eyes as wide open as I always do. And gain some new inspirations along the way.
I know I raised some eyebrows with my previous blogpost, and I’m comfortable with that. While I welcome all to linger here, I do not force everyone to stay. Although, I do think it is healthy for people to understand that sometimes even good and righteous people will not look or act like a cookie-cutter cut-out. And why should they? And if people truly believe this, even deep down where they don’t want to admit it, then perhaps I am not the one with as many problems as I thought.
I have made no secret that I am struggling right now. This does not make me a bad person. It doesn’t mean there is something wrong with me. It just means I am having a very human experience. And I will survive because I always do.
So whether I swear — or use “bad” language — or have moments where I let my passion break out, or say exactly what I mean — it really shouldn’t matter as to how that reflects on me as a person. Because I think I am a pretty good person . And I really wish I could say I was sorry if people disagree because I’m not sorry.
There is more than shades of grey in this world. There are shades of red, too. And I’ll dance in the red while the whisperers linger in the grey.
Let #Reverb12 begin tomorrow. I’m ready.
