On Fridays I like to join Lisa-Jo and her friends on Five Minute Fridays. She provides us with a prompt and we write for Five Minutes. She doesn't have many rules. Just write from your heart, be real, for five minutes. And then visit the person who linked up just before you and offer her some encouragement in their comment section. Really, that is her only rule. So hop on over and link up. This week the word is WRITE
Ready, set, go...........
Why do I write? I write for myself. I like to get my feelings out. I sometimes feel that I am holding so much in and it helps me to put things on paper. Or in this case, on my blog. I know that my family and friends read my blog and what I put here are not things that I can often say to them out loud. So I write.
I write to escape. To live in another place. To find the peace that I long for. Escaping the hard times. By doing this it helps me to appreciate the good times. We have good times. Really, we do.
I cannot paint. Or craft. I am not that great of a cook. I am not a photographer. I love to read. And I write. I write what I feel. What I see. It is my therapy. My way to figure out life. It is MINE. A way to express myself. And a way to discover who I am. I write so that my thoughts are preserved. I want my family to have the memories that are in my head. Good or bad. I write. Life is not always rainbows. There is no right or wrong when I write my thoughts. Because they are mine.
There you go.....now get over to Lisa-Jo Baker's and link up.
