Soul Talks: The Wild World of Blogging

Okay, so below is Soul Talk number 2!  (Giggle, giggle)  I think Alia & I forgot we were recording (not that we would have done anything differently).  It's just so us having a conversation.  We discuss the wildness, the ups and downs and all-over-the-place-ness of this blogging world.  There is beautiful, sacred connected-ness that happens when we put ourselves out there, and right alongside the beauty, there is this intense vulnerability...that feeling of yikes! can I really put this out there?  Are people going to think_________?  (Fill in the blank with your own yikes)  

It is a constant act of showing up with our hearts in hand, clicking away, then with a little holding of the breath...hitting publish.  It's scary and alive and so often way out of our comfort zone. But it's a saying YES to our deepest, most sacred parts.  And that's always, always what I want to say YES to.  Even when, maybe especially when, my voice shakes.

I think if you blog or put yourself out there in any way, you'll very much relate to this talk.

So here we are...yikes and all.
