Set a timer for 5 minutes. Write using the I am________ prompt. Do not Edit or proof read. Don't think about it. Just write until the timer goes off.
I am a survivor of domestic violence. I was married to a physically and mentally abusive man for 3 years. The day I decided to leave, I realized how strong I really am.
I am Christian, and I try to be a good one. But I don't go to church nearly enough.
I am a cinderella story. I grew up very poor and have worked hard to never let my daughter live that life.
I am silly. I dance to the beat of my own drum and I don't care if you think I'm weird.
I am a dancer, just not a very good one anymore...
I am optimistic. I always try to see the bright side of things, even when it seems to others like there may not be one.
I am a cryer. I cry when a sad commercial comes on, I cry when there is tragedy, and I sometimes cry when I'm happy.
I am sensitive. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words cut me deep.
I am an insomniac and get so much done when the rest of the world is asleep.
I am a lover of arts and a wanna be artist.
I am a perfectionist, which makes me push myself to do better.
I am cake maker. I like to make children's dream cakes happen.
I am not the best writer, but I love getting my thoughts out thre anyway.
I am terrible with money!
I am a planner, but things never go as
Wow, I got a lot more written down in 5 minutes than I would have guessed! Once I started writing the thoughts just flowed. This was such an empowering activity. I encourage everyone to take 5 minutes today and try it! Even if you don't blog, grab a piece of paper and write it down.
Take care and God bless. :)
