Have you ever had a conversation that caught you off guard? Been talking about one thing when suddenly it veers in a completely different direction? Or maybe you started out jabbering about a light topic when it slowly got deep and real. I had a conversation like that today. There was some down time during my day and a friend and I were talking about ways to spend a weekend away. As we talked it became more about life choices and the maturing process.
We don't generally have time to talk in the detail with which we talked today. We usually don't share as much personal information. When it was over, I wondered if I had made a mistake. But I don't think so. I feel a peace with my honesty and blessed by our conversation.
If you know me at all you probably think I share too many details. I bet you think you know way more than you need to about most areas of my life. But there are some things I keep close to my chest. Some areas I struggle with that I am not proud of. And often I gloss over those things. Or make comments that are a bit misleading, while not quite dishonest. Today I was wholly honest, knowing it was a risk. And it was a risk I am glad I took.
Now go talk to somebody!
