Hello, Coffee and Honeycomb readers! I am so excited to be taking over Jenny's blog today. Jenny is one amazing soul and friend to me. She's full of encouragement, wisdom, and love and that's something I hope to be each and every day. But you knew that already, didn't you?
It's friendships like these that make me grateful for the blogging community. Because it really and truly is a community. One of the greatest lessons I've learned from blogging is the importance of being honest, open, and raw with your readers. While it's the hardest kind of post to write (can I get an amen?), it's also one of the most rewarding. These kinds of posts really open the door to friendships. They let you readers see you for who you really are, as a real human, and a relatable person. Plus, as a writer, they also help me process my emotions and deepen my faith, too. They let me get things out, help me admit my fears, help me process the events in my life, and help me realize how much what I need to work on. So if you ask me, it's a win-win situation.
But it's a lot easier said than done, right?
And that's why I'm here today. I'm here to encourage you to share your heart. I'm not pushing you to reveal your deepest darkest secrets (privacy is also important!) but I am encouraging you to be honest with your readers and friends. Be honest, be open, and be ready for all of the love that you'll receive.
Be ready friends, because love is on its way.
That said, Happy Valentine's Day! I promise I had no intention of writing a post like this with such crazy timing. I guess you could say love is in the air (and so are my terrible cliches and puns…).
Thanks again for having me, Jenny!
