Linking up with Lisa Jo again for Five Minute Friday. The day we “write for five minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” Come join in the fun HERE.
There is a direct correlation between writing and the path that led me to freedom and to life.
For years, I avoided both words and life.
Wrong turns were taken, mega mistakes were made and my words remained buried.
Until one day.
Until one day, the thought of throwing one more shovel full of dirt over my words was more painful than the thought of digging them up and exposing them…of letting the light in.
All those years of avoiding, was really an attempt to run away from one of my biggest fears…ME.
What would I find? And would I be able to face the discovery?
With every word
I discover more and more joy.
Silence is a grave.
Writing is resurrection.
Posting this song again…because the words say it so well.
