Sometimes, it feels like I have a lot to say.  But I can't really say it.  For lots of reasons.  Anyone who blogs or is on social media should know this feeling - where the borderline is in terms of privacy.

Sometimes, there is so much going on in my head and my heart that I just need time to sort through it.

Sometimes I have to figure out what I have control over and can do something about.

Sometimes I have to figure out what's really any of my business in the first place.

Sometimes I have to think about the consequences - what might happen if I share.

I worry, sometimes, when I hit "publish" on a blog post.  I worry that I might alienate someone that I care about.  I worry I might be misunderstood.

There is a lot going on in the world right now.  A lot I could have something to say about... a lot I have an opinion about.

But sometimes... it's best to just sit and let things work through my brain and my heart.  Take time to process and pray.  Take time to be silent.

Take time to be silent. I like that! I have many days when I'm not sure, so I take the day off and write somewhere private, like a journal. Sometimes, that's where the right words will appear...

It is SO true. There are so many things I want to share on my blog, or on Facebook, etc, but I just know it's better to say nothing.
