I felt clogged and overwhelmed and I heard the voices of Lisa-Jo, Emily, and Mary like a mantra in my head, "Turn off the noise -- all the social media," "Set a timer," "Shut off the editor in your head."
So I did.
For 20 minutes.
I purged my soul.
I haven't posted those words here in this space yet. Honestly, I haven't even gone back and read them. I just needed to get it out. The hundreds and thousands of words that block my heart and soul to the point of complete distraction and....I just can't seem to take it anymore...
So I wrote out the deep, the marrow, the sacrifice of me.
And in this pilgrimage of trying, understanding, feeling, clawing my way through the murky waters, there is something deeper, something harder, something important that beckons to the deepest hurt, the loneliest pain, the hardest sorrow...
"Do you trust ME?"
On Fridays, I join with Lisa-Jo and these amazing word weavers who throw caution to the wind and just write, unedited, uncaged, unstoppable, for just 5 minutes. Have you every tried? You should join us! It will AMAZE you what comes out...even if you don't have a blog...even if YOU think YOU are not a writer....Will you take the plunge this week??
