Day 4 of 31 of my series 31 Days of Walking in Love.
I realize there has been a long pause between days 3 and 4 in my series, we all fall down sometimes, but I am jumping back in the saddle and continuing my journey of walking in love. Thank you to all who are still with me and those who will join me along the way.
This post is a part of Five minute Friday, a writing flash mob that happens every week when writers are prompted by a single word to write for 5 minutes without any major editing. Just raw thoughts and emotions. You can find out more and/or join the party here. Tonight’s word is BRAVE.
The present state of this world sometimes makes me so sad. People are so very afraid of their own emotions. Too afraid of what people with think or say, or afraid that they will be rejected, so they don’t say anything at all. This lack of communication is bringing us down. Sometimes all you need to hear is that someone loves you. So, today I challenge you to make your declarations, be it of like or love. Just tell them. Be sure that every person you would miss knows that you would miss them. Walk up to that person you have never spoken to and tell them that you would like to get to know them. Tell your best friend, who just happens to be of the opposite sex, that you have been harboring an all consuming crush/love for them for years. What’s the worst that can happen? They say they don’t feel the same way? Would that really really kill you? I know it might hurt for a little while, but every one that isn’t the right one brings you one step closer to the one that God made for you.
I know when I watch friends celebrating anniversaries, or new marriages there is a place in my heart that aches for that kind of love. Wouldn’t it be sad if you missed out on it because you were too afraid to put yourself out there and let your feelings be known?
