I know this blog is full of opinions and (oftentimes) just a bunch of hot air. And to be honest, over the past couple of weeks I seriously considered bringing this episode of my life to a close and walking away from this blog.
So far I haven’t acted on that yet…
Lest you have a false impression about how I feel about certain things, let me set the record straight. But before I do, let me also state that I’m aware that I have some standards in my life that some of my readers do not have. I’m also aware that some of you may think I’m off my rocker for adhering to said standards. With that said, here’s what I really wanted to say in this post…
When people see the title of this blog, they automatically assume that it’s written by someone who’s older, mature in their faith, and got it all together. Well, you know what “assuming” does, right…? ;]
If the truth be told, I still have very immature moments. I still fight with my brother at times. I still get an attitude every now and again. I still think it’s “my way or the highway” when it comes to an opinionated verbal showdown. I even still have a hard time saying “I’m sorry” when I wrong someone; I don’t always say “Thank you” when someone does something for me because I think somehow I deserved it; or “I love you” to someone I have a disagreement with even though they mean the world to me.
just some food for thought:
my facebook is my facebook. and Grow Up! is my blog. anyone who has access to either is welcome to read, comment, or share anything on them. but please know that demanding explanations and cyber-yelling at me in all caps will not get you anywhere. and sending me angry, “I’ll-teach-you-a-thing-or-two” private messages/emails won’t get you very far either - I rarely respond to them.
I post things not to start arguments or make enemies. I post them because they are a blessing to me. whether or not you let it be a blessing to you is your choice.
