As you can see on the sidebar, I have signed up to ComLeavWe, or International Comment Leaving Week. It means I've committed to a week in August (21-28) of leaving six comments a day on blogs. Now, many of you may do this every month, and will roll your eyes at both my enthusiasm and trepidation. Feel free! I have only done IComLeavWe a few times, though, so this is a big deal!
I do try to comment regularly, I probably average a couple of comments every day, but committing to six is going to be a stretch, especially with the issues I have commenting using the combination of an iPad and Feedly and an occasional dodgy internet connection. But it is good to commit to something.
And after all my discussions about role models and hidden doorways and different paths, and after reading a post today about our path being dimly lit, I've decided it's time to shine a bit more light on a no kidding life. And to stop just doing it here where I'm cosy and comfortable, but to reach out and maybe do it elsewhere too. Even if all I am doing is showing that we won't lash out in bitterness or jealousy, and that others don't have to censor themselves around us, and that in due course, we can cope with their journeys, even if they are on the path that we once wanted to tread.
I just hope I remember come 21 August!
