Day 6/31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 2017: STORY

Day 6

Everyone has a story.  There is a background to every human being that shapes and colors their world.  Hearing about where someone grew up and what their families were like is both fascinating and eye opening.  In a culture where people are comfortable being superficial, painting the best pictures of ourselves and our families gives such a false sense of what we’re really like.  How we all crave intimacy, yet are afraid to make the first move.  Our stories should be genuine, not artificially created.  Some of my closest friends are those that absolutely cannot stand small talk, and need to talk about what’s real.  Once we get real, it can certainly get messy, but it’s so worth it in the end to know and be known.

About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
