Dear Reader

"We tell lies when we are afraid... afraid of what we don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger."

Dear Reader,

Think one thing, say another. We all do it. Wouldn't it be nice, though, to just once say what's really on our minds? We could never do that, though. What would people think? Surely most would not react the way you would want them to, and, deep down, we all know this. So we twist our words, and the truth. We keep things like journals and diaries and blogs- the only places where we can just be ourselves. Even in the blogging world, though, it is hard to do this. People you know read what you write, and it's out there online for everyone to see. I want to start something up again that I did on my last blog- it's called Let It Out Monday. If you would like, send me a letter that you have written, or one that you have stumbled upon online. For those of you who, just once, want to escape the pressure of what other people think about you, tell me and I'll post it anonymously. For those of you who say to hell with what other people think, give me the link to your site and I'll post it with your letter. Let It Out Monday will be every Monday. I will post one letter, on a first come, first serve basis. My e-mail is, you can send them there. Intro quote not necessary, but welcomed. Look forward to hearing from you!



  1. Just came across your blog :)It is lovely!


  2. Speak the truth sister. I was just thinking to myself how sometimes we are self conscious around our own self, how ironic. we are the people most comfortable about, and here we can even be in denial. It's all about image, how us and others perceive. And even most of the times the image you have of yourself isn't what other people think of you.

    Good post.

  3. I must say that I adore your blog and I may take you up on that offer to email a letter.
