1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
I want to grow as a counselor and help people.
I want to grow as a writer and serve people.
I want to go on short-term mission trips and minister to others.
There’s more to me beyond Thomas’ mommy. Michael’s wife. Smitty and Patsy’s daughter.
I’m proud of those titles. I hold them close to my heart. They are most important to me. But there is a ME beyond that.
That me likes naps in the middle of the day. Gets giddy over a molten chocolate lava cake at Chili’s. Watches Downton Abbey back to back to back. Worries that she isn’t enough-pretty, organized, efficient, whatever.
There’s a real ME beyond this blog. She’s funny. Not so serious all the time. I say stupid things and get my words jumbled because I talk too fast. Secretly I like to dance around the house in my PJs or slide across the hardwood floor in my sock feet.
When no one’s looking of course.
Who are you beyond?
