We are called to run the race before us, but sometimes I think it is okay to simply walk. Walking is all we can do on the ways we are weary and weighed down by life. The act of moving forward, however fast and however slow, can be enough to get us back to the point of running the path in front of us.

Other times we must jump and take giant leaps of faith in order to hold on to perseverance.

Today I am jumping again as I continue to figure out this writing journey. From the beginning, it feels like every step is a jump into an unknown world, a foreign land that is begging me to hurry.

The words want me to immerse myself among them so I may learn to write faster, better, and share it with the world. I have to jump into writing and try new things and new ways to express thoughts, stories. I have to be more open to sharing my passion to create with words and it all begins with a jump into new territory. Only then can I learn to run the race set before me.

I’m joining my first link-up today: Five Minute Friday. Everyone focuses on one word and writes for five minutes without editing. Check it out or follow the #FiveMinuteFriday posts on Twitter.
