Five Minute Friday: Write
It is Friday which means it is time to link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again. This means: write for five minutes flat, no editing, just let it pour out of your fingers. I have been missing out for months now but today I want to squeeze those five minutes in. This week's caption is
Writing. I never considered myself to be a writer. But I have always written. I started to write a journal when I was in fifth grade and I did it regularly until I finished school. Then, due to a lack of time, I wrote less. But still, I wrote occasionally, mostly when I was feeling down and needed to get things off my chest.
I took it up again more frequently when I got married and then again when I was pregnant. Because I thought these were special occasions that I never wanted to forget about. After the birth of my son I had times when I journaled often and then there were times when I did not write at all. There were things that were too painful when written down black on white. Words suddenly became truths and as long as they were not written they were not true.
Now, I am writing a blog. I feel good in this space, here, where I write. I find peace in knowing there are others out there sharing my experiences, lifting me up when I am down or cheering for us when something went well.
Writing is good. It helps me in so many ways. Maybe I am writer without even knowing it.
