We all read the news and hear about the sex scandals, marriage failures and failures of parents. All the time, every day! Most of these people are “found out” and forced to share their moral failures with the world via the newspapers, magazines and even more quickly social media. With that being the world we live in, people are constantly warned to be careful what they put on the web, send via text or even record on their personal devices. It simply takes one click of a button now to shoot our most embarrassing, most failed moments out to the universe.
For right at a year or so, I’ve been following a blogger whom I admire greatly although we’ve never had any interaction other than my reading her personal and business blogs on a regular basis: Julie’s Fabulous Life. Not only has she struggled with the ramifications of being raised in a ultra conservative Christian environment, but she also chose to leave her marriage and she and her ex seem to have a relationship similar to my ex and I. They work together in all things for their children leaving the anger, jealousy, etc. in the past.
But really what I most admire about her story has been her willingness to just let it all out there…no moral cover up, no excuses, no beating around the bush, she just says…hey, this is what happened, this is why I did it, this is how it affected me and whomever else and now here’s where we go from here.
I really wish I had the courage I’ve seen in others to just just kind of hold up their hand and say…this is me, this is my way, my life and I’m doing it.
I wish I had a healthy view of morality, God’s judgment and probably more importantly a healthy confidence of who I am. I need to transform my thinking!
