Judgy McJudgerson


I've been gone awhile again.



I can't seem to get my blogging groove back.

I start, I stop, I start again, and I stop.

Over and over it goes.

This time though, I've been taking some time getting my ravens ducks in a row.

Yes, those are ravens on my bird bath!

After Christmas, I started to clean house mentally and took a long hard look at myself. 

One of the things I've realized is that I've always been a Judgy McJudgerson and sometimes that side of me shows on this blog.

Not all the time, mind you, but I know when I'm doing it, because I'll hesitate before I push publish, knowing full well that when I do it'll chap some hides.


Then, for whatever reason I'll just say "screw it" and poof! I verbally vomit all over this place.



That is not what I'm going for here.

Or anywhere, for that matter.



So, I'm trying to change that, and a few other things, about myself with the help of the man upstairs.

Yeah, we've had quite a few conversations lately.

I'm ashamed to say that He hasn't heard from me much, other than a lot of complaining about my life, but that's changed too.

I know He's happy about that! ;)

Anyway, it's a hard job to change my judgmental ways, since I come from a long line of McJudgersons, but I'm getting there. Slowly.



I can't say that I won't have an opinion in my everyday life and on this blog, God knows I have plenty, but hopefully I'll be able to do it in a way that helps rather than hurts.



I just want to be a better person and for this blog to be a place that will hopefully make people feel good.



What this all means, for this place, is that I'll be more conscious of what I post about.

In fact, from now on I will be taking this verse to heart:

...Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

I think that's a pretty great place to start.



Yes, yes I do :)

love,
rue


PS

Thanks to all of you for your sweet words on my last post about Mini's passing. It means a great deal to me that you care and that some of you even shared your stories about your fur-babies passing on. My heart goes out to all of you.
