This is my second week to participate in Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo.
Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
And the topic is: HERE
Frozen. Paralyzed. In a fog.
All words that describe my time while I was walking around, but never really present.
I knew something was wrong. But couldn’t figure it out.
I was at the park with my kids and husband. They were running. I was watching.
An out of body experience. As if I was watching from the outside.
I remember trying to smile. It didn’t feel natural. It wasn’t.
Finally went for help. Finally talked to someone. Someone actually listened.
She asked me what I wanted. I didn’t have an answer. I didn’t know.
“present. I want to be present.”
It was a difficult road, but now on the other side…I can finally say…
“I am here.”
