Deep, Not Wide

Allume 2014-0730(1) final

I made a mistake last year.

Well, to be fair, I make them every day. 😉

But this one…it was the kind that grated on me for a year. I just couldn’t get it out of my head. And I knew things needed to be different, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what I had done wrong. And, really, it took twelve months to process.

But this morning, as I sit down with my coffee and pour my heart out to you, I’m starting to see.

And, oh…it feels good to finally see.

So one of my dreams has been, for a long time, to “make it” in the blogging world…to become the next big blogger, whatever that looks like.

And what that DOES look like…well, I still haven’t quite figured that out. For a long time, I had it in my head that it meant tons of followers, comments, a platform the width of the world, lots of recognition. And, of course, a book deal to follow.

In reality it sounds like a lovely, perfectly-ordered dream, doesn’t it?

And there was a time…a span of about a year…when I chased that dream hard.

Too. Hard.

Today I’m over at God-sized Dreams telling a heart-story, one that’s tough to share with the world. Will you join me there?




  1. You have written my story…..told of my troubles and dreams, my desires and my sorrows. Than you for sharing…has helped a lot.

  2. We all dream big. But…reality is so different than dreams. GOD is so real and so simple and so molding each of us to His will not ours. We can be little bloggers. We all matter to Him. 😉

    • I’m really loving the idea of embracing being a little blogger…because you’re right. We ALL matter. (((hugs))) Hope you are doing well, friend!

  3. You have a beautiful spirit and This post was super encouraging! I love your renewed perspective on blogging-thank you for sharing! These words needed to be heard! :)
