Day 14/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 2017: TRY

Day 14

“Do or do not.  There is no try.”  -Yoda

I didn’t get to the laundry today.  I’ll try to get to it tomorrow.

I didn’t make cookies today.  I’ll try to make them tomorrow.

I forgot to get butter.  I’ll try to remember that next time I’m shopping.

How many times in a day to I use the word Try, rather than just doing whatever it is?  It gets exhausting and deflating when I realize all the things I wanted to “try” to get done that day, and nothing feels accomplished.  Except that my little girl is happy, had some outdoor time, fed, and well rested.  Sometimes, as a momma, that seems to be all I can do is to take care of my girl.  That, I just do.  Why is doing the same for my husband so much harder?  We need to try to make time for each other.  Correction, we must make time for each other.


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.
