I'm taking part (again) in Gypsy Mama's Five Minute Friday. (Woot, woot!) I love this opportunity to just write, simply write for five minutes.
Wanna know the rule? It's not so bad, really.
Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
For too long I danced on the edge, wanting to jump in, but not daring. My fear overwhelmed me.
Excuses came and went, knowing they were excuses but I could always fully justify them. Then came the moment that I jumped. I had to. I couldn't live my life waiting, wondering, hoping... regretting.
I drew in the life-giving air and threw caution to the wind. God has sustained me, lifted me up on His wings. He had too. After all, it was His idea, not mine.
Out went the fears of the unknown, of what others thought, of what I thought. That baggage was holding me back, a prisoner in my own life. Not that it hasn't been scary. You can't give up a life of control, caution and fear without having moments of gut-wrenching terror.

So, here I go, taking risks, the warrior-princess, embracer of life that I was called to be.
