Day 2940 – Honesty Is The Best Policy

I mentioned yesterday there are times I want to toss my alcoholism memoir manuscript. It is just not fun sitting myself down, forcing past Jen to remind me of what happened those times. Taking an honest look at those memories. Those times hugging the toilet. Those times doing really stupid things. Those times I can’t remember. But through the process, I’ve realized how nice it’s been coming clean. Sharing my testimony was a big step in living a truly honest life. Having my alcoholism and sobriety out in such a public fashion has helped me take major steps forward in a lot of areas in my life.

A few days back, we were having dinner with a dear friend. Our conversation was about how I embarrass easy. My past Jen definitely embarrassed easy, but my current Jen is much harder to embarrass. I am much much much more comfortable in my skin. I embrace who I am so much more. Living honestly has been so freeing. And as my 5 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me post can attest, there isn’t much y’all don’t know about me.

So I encourage you to live an honest life. Express who you truly are, warts and all.

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
