I find myself in an emotional muddle, with nary a cohesive thought to write. Yesterday close friends in our neighborhood just moved away to a distant state. Today my washing machine just quit with a load of wash still sitting in water. Since I'm not in the frame to write, I do the next best thing and find solace in hanging out in the blogosphere reading the words of my blogging buddies.
It is apparently what the doctor ordered, as I have found much candor, wisdom, depth, and humor in the following posts (in no particular order):
For sheer candor in the art of being human, take time to read these posts:
- Tom Volkar - When Doubt is Good. Tom's post, sprinkled with earthy language, shines with transparency. I find myself laughing out loud. We all go through periods of doubt. If we can recognize when we are in the period of "good doubt," we can find the courage to hang with it to get to the next place.
- Liz Strauss - The Minute I'm Sure I"m Right, I'm Most Certainly Wrong. Liz discusses how support can hinder others. How difficult we all find it to admit we are wrong, but to go public takes a big person.
- Barbara Sliter - The Unintended Impact of Certainty. Certainty is valued. Uncertainty is pooh-poohed. Yet being "less certain" can make room for other voices. Thanks to Barbara for opening up this topic in a new way.
For your daily dose of wisdom, enjoy these posts:
