"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

MY REALNESS


This will probably turn into an “appreciation post,” in response to yesterday’s post Miserable in My Misery.

I will have bad days.

Just like everyone else here, they will come. Our intensities may differ! I consider a lot of you as regular sincere bloggers of mine and hopefully visa versa. That is the uniqueness of this so called “blogger family” we share. We can just do that…….”share” without fear of what the other may think. That being said, it is okay for you, I and anyone else to have a bad day and be here to support one another! This is what we do best. Ever since I have come to the realization of “being real” is the best way to go, I try and just do that. I do not want anyone ever to feel uncomfortable with my ‘realness.’ I am just putting it out at the moment exactly as best I can “what I am feeling.” Right now, I tend to be more negative than positive, but in time that will change as I heal and grow in the understanding of just “Who I Am,” and “Who God Has Made Me To Be.” Which will truly be “The Real Me” one day!!!! But, again, that is my realness right at the moment. “I could be feeling really crappy and I will say it and express it.” I may not express myself clearly at times. Also, most of us know we can lose meaning in our translation by typing our feelings out on a blog, email, etc. as opposed to talking face to face. So, it may be hard to read someone at times.

I want to thank you all for your sincere concern. You all have helped and encouraged me along my own journey in so many ways you have no idea! I truly appreciate every single one of you, and thank you from the bottom of my heart and enjoy getting to know each one of you as you too share from your heart!

  1. This journal/blog I hope is really a tool to help you get through what you have to get through to get to the light at the end of the tunnel. We are all human and have good and bad days, and when someone is dealing with past/present abuse it is very stressful, emotional and causes intense feelings.....ups and downs. I am glad you have the guts to write down how you feel even if at times it may not make sense, its part of the healing process. Hugs to you I hope some day you can look back at your blog and see how far you have come and feel happy and free of the demons of your past.

  5. I have such respect for you because you ARE REAL. In our day-to-day lives we go about wearing our masks and greeting others who also wear masks. Here is where we can take off those masks and share what we truly feel. It shouldn't matter in the least whether it's positive, negative, or someplace in between. What's important through blogging is finding a niche where you can unload the weight you carry on your shoulders and know that it's alright, it's your place to "just be."

  6. AD-Your words are very much appreciated! I am just learning how much it is important for each one of us, if we are 'real' how much we can share and feed off one another the good. Thank you.

  13. Yep, the road...ups and downs, Rainbow said. But you know, i do not believe there have to be so many BUMPS as the road rises and falls. Key for me is to help others. Of course, that's not easy if I an in great pain and suffering.

    Anyway, JBR...just don't let it happen again, -GRIN!!
    until next time, that is. We'll be here, and me, too.
    You have a great group of peeps on your blogroll!

  17. One of the things that I enjoy about reading you is you are REAL. It's human to have floundering emotions. Honestly I have to wonder about people who claim to be happy 24/7. (Hugs)Indigo

  18. Thank you for your honesty in talking about your own struggles--I want you to know how much that helps so many other people.

    I used to be much more negative than positive and then I went through therapy and the psychologist I worked with helped me learn to reframe my thought patterns. I learned to spot when negative thought came into my head and then reframe it into something more positive (even if I didn't quite believe it). Over time, I started believing it. It really did work for me.

    I wish you the best in your struggle and here's a ((((((hug))))) for you today!
