Perfectionist or Procrastinator?

Okay, I admit it. I have failed. I was SO excited about starting this blog and was confident about what it was supposed to be. Since then, I have allowed the fear of judgment, expectation and failure to creep in. Thus, I have done nothing with it!

Let me just start and put it all on the table. I’m a perfectionist. If it’s not perfect, I don’t want to do it. I know, I’m working on it. I’m laying it down. I don’t want to worry about this blog being perfect. My grammar might not be correct; there might even be typo’s (eek)! I don’t want to get bogged down with details. I DO want this blog to be a safe place to encourage and edify each other. I want people to feel free to talk about their experiences, both good and bad. I want us to share our feelings today that may shift and mold into a new perspective tomorrow. Here’s some insight on me…my immediate family is still dysfunctional when it comes to dealing with race and racism. I want this to be a safe place for us to “meet at the table”.  I want this to be a place of reflection for whatever side of the table you sit on. 

Let’s pull up a chair…

  1. I only have a minute to respond….We have begun talking to our younger kids (Sam 10 and Nick 8) much more than we did before we moved to the city. The lack of cultural diversity we lived in back in Ohio was a major issue for me and when we moved to KY…I begsn poitnign out to tth boys how much i loved living in a place where there were so many different kinds of people and how creative God is to make so many different kinds. Our own extended family of course has racial diversity and that has helped but i have discovered that wih this batch of kids I am being more deliberate about talking about race and how racism has affected and hurt so many people in our history….I think i did it some with Doug (25) and Audrey (22) too but not as much…..I don’t know if this is what you were asking about or not…..I agree we really have to talk about it and I think the earlier the better……
