Can’t help myself May 25, 2009

No, this is not a post about chocolate chip cookies, however I could write a post on how I just can’t help myself when it comes to making batches of warm cookies late at night so I can indulge in some midnight sweetness.

Again I digress.  I went from my last post to make sure that I linked correctly to Mark Batterson’s blog and oh my goodness I found this nugget and I just had to share it.  This guy keeps them coming!  He is talking about “finding your voice”.

Another part of finding your voice is getting out of your comfort zone and getting into your confidence zone where you have the courage to say some things that you know might step on some toes. If you want to see people dance, you’ve got to shoot bullets at their feet every now and then! Finding your voice is having the courage to offend. It is saying some things that you know will cause people to say, “You didn’t just say that.” To which we respond, “Oh yes I did.”

Please go read his whole post b/c it is so good, but this snippet just resonated with me.  I love that image of shooting bullets at people’s feet to see them dance.  Gets me fired up:)  I love it!  Anybody else?

    LOVE this!!!
    And, my dear, I am very proud to attest to the world that you ‘found your voice’ at a very young age. You were ever and always able to write honestly, communicate clearly, and infuse your writing with an individual perspective, humor and joy.
    Hence, all the A’s on your journals and compositions! 😉
