So, I am going to try and participate in something called “Five Minute Friday” – check out http://www.lisajobaker.com for all the details but basically each Friday she will post a prompt and you write for 5 minutes on the topic.
So here goes. The word for this week is Story. We all have a story as I now know. I guess for a long time I didn’t think I had any kind of story, that life was pretty boring, I was doing what I was supposed to do, etc.
Well, over the last few years I’ve found out through a lot of growing pains, tears, you name it, that I do in fact have story. It’s my story and mine alone and it is unique to me. My story is not like anyone else’s but its mine and I guess I would say I’m kind of proud of it in a way.
My story shows the progress I’ve made in my life in working towards the woman and person I am supposed to be. In living out my story I think I’ve discovered a whole new me, as a matter of fact.
I really like the new me that has unfolded in my story. She’s got a lot of qualities that I think I knew all along but were really afraid to embrace because of a lot of things I was taught growing up.
So, with time winding down on this five minutes I want to encourage you to embrace your story, whatever it is. It’s yours and tells the story of “you” whatever it may be, good or bad. We all have a story and it changes and grows as we walk through life.
Have a great Friday!
