Write 31 Days with Friends

In the month of October, I am participating in the 31 Days of Writing challenge.

I want to settle in to what it means to be called, to be the beloved, to be a daughter, to be accepted, to be chosen, to be of faith, to be loved, to be forgiven, to be whole, to be authentic, and to belong.  What does it mean when all of those things collide?  A beautiful mess?  Filthy ashes?  A phoenix rising?  I want to know.  Life is too short not to explore and excavate the depths of who we can become.  Follow along at my blog: marviadavidson.com

You’ll also find some of my very dear writing friends participating in the challenge too.  Their words are passion, restoration, love, writing, gentleness, fire, hope, renewal, grace, wisdom, and peace.

If I’m Going to Be Honest

If I’m going to be real then I’m going to write about the intimidation (a lifetime of it hidden from public view).  If I’m going to write about what I don’t want to write about then I’m going to write about the experience of story coaching (life changingly good) and being amongst a very, very experienced, well-versed community of writers and feeling like I don’t quite fit in.  If I’m going to be honest, then I’m going to write about how I feel so far out of my league.  If I’m going to be honest I’m going to tell you that I’m ready to quit – and we just only started.  I’m going to have to relive some pain, acknowledge some hurt and unbelief, and let people know it’s safe to come near me.  I’m going to have to uncover old things that I don’t want to deal with but that I have to deal with in order to move forward.  I’m going to dig my heels into the ground and build this dream.  But… If I’m going to be honest, I’m letting you know I might quit.  If I’m going to be honest, this is too much for me.  If I’m going to be honest, I don’t think I can take it.  I’m just being honest.
