Embrace Day 26 // Five Minute Free Write “Confront”

Beautiful autumn landscape with yellow trees and sun. Colorful foliage in the park. Falling leaves natural background .Autumn season concept

I don’t like confrontation. Matter of fact, I do everything in my power can to avoid it. Whether it be a work situation, or a disagreement with a friend, I am usually the one to cower down and just give in, or up.

But over the last month or so I’ve had to do some very deep confronting of situations in my own life. What I was forced to look at isn’t pretty. Matter of fact, I wanted to turn and run the other way.

Embrace Day 23 // Five Minute Free Writes “Blowout”

Some days I feel as if I’m holding my breath, and along with it I’m holding onto all in my life that is hurtful, stressful and worrisome.
