As was the first, your second 'hundred' list was awesome. Reminds me that I need to update mine :) So many things you wrote ring true in my life and it makes me think what great thing this blogging is because it bring people together that would have never met otherwise. Also, being vulnerable isn’t always a bad thing, that means that you are being true and without truth we have nothing. Sometimes it is hard to even be true to ourselves even though it is sitting right there inside of us. Does that make sense?
