because it's happening.
When is it too much?....The sharing, blogging, and capturing of your life. When will you be sitting in a job interview where someone brings up a particularly raw blog post of yours that was written ten years ago and ask you about it? Where are these pieces of my life that I write about really going? Will they live longer than me? Floating in some kind of internet purgatory?
These are thoughts that keep me from blogging. I am afraid that the term, "over-sharing" may including blogging in general, and so I keep quiet. I protect myself...my family...my future jobs by not saying anything at all. But, author Frederick Buechner eloquently puts it all in perspective in The Sacred Journey when he writes:
"Listen. Your life is happening. You are happening."
So, really...who cares? Who cares that you share, granted you are not hurting or defaming someone else in the process? Who cares that people know you through this medium? You are happening, so you might as well let us in on it, too.
With that said, I'm linking my most recent publication at Ungrind....one that makes me want to shrink away from the "publish post" button on Blogger, but here it is. Me and my life, we are happening, after all.
