If I Knew I Could, I Would
I have been meaning to take part in this Five Minute Friday by The Gypsy Mama for the past couple weeks. However, I just haven't. I think today is a good day to partake. It's simple, she gives a prompt and you write for five minutes without editing, or thinking much--just writing what comes out.
So here it goes...
If I knew I could, I would...open a bakery catering to gluten-free, paleo peeps. Join the local Storyteller's Guild. Began teaching & speaking, or pursue this avenue in life. I would join a musical & audition for the lead. Join a band. Homeschool my daughter, in spite of special needs. I would write more, take risks into the deep of my heart and not be concerned with what others thought of me.
I would find my niche in this blogging, writing world and be okay with it. I would empower women to become who they are meant to be. I would tell my story, the good parts, the bad parts & the hard parts. I would write my old sister in law. I would speak boldly without fear of being eloquent in my speech. I would work at my gym to achieve what seems unachievable. I would stop feeling the need to become or do the things in life that I think others would want. I would start loving myself more & leaning into Jesus more. I would take hold of the little girl singing on the mall benches, sharing her love of Jesus unabashedly, and make her me now.
