On Depth

Or lack thereof.

I really enjoy reading blogs that have depth, where people share things that are on their hearts. Something they've experienced, thoughts they have, some part of their spiritual journey, parenting challenges, relationship struggles, etc. I've been so encouraged by friends (and strangers) to share what is going on deep down. But I've realized that I don't choose to use this blog in the same way. I started keeping a journal during junior high, when I was going through a rough time socially. I've kept it up over the years and haven't had the desire to switch to a digital, public version. I still find refreshment in sitting down and "writing myself out".

All this to say, perhaps I sometimes feel like I should apologize for not digging so deep and letting you all know what's going on in the corners (or forefront) of my mind, because I appreciate hearing from others what they're dealing with.  However, I also recognize that although I'm a social person, and I like have deep conversations with people, I just haven't gotten to a place where I'm going to do that online.

But to those of you whose blogs I read who share some deep thoughts, thank you. Keep it up.
