Five minute Friday: GRIT

Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.

We write because we want to, not because we have to. We write for fun, for joy, for discovery.

We just write without worrying if it’s just write or not.

Won’t you join us?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them.
OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on: GRIT

Everyone has a little bit of it in them, grit, a resolve to do, to live, to become. No matter how small or great; it is within us. It’s called out of us in different situations.

Those pre-mature babies, fighting for their lives in ICU. Who is fighting? They are! No matter how old or how young they are.

The family who’s struggling with the bills and trying to make ends meet, week after week. Better yet, the parents who week after week sacrifice their time and sleep to try everything in their power to not let their kids know of their struggle.

The young adult who pays his own way through college and grad school no matter what the statistics say about him; he is determined.

What calls it out in you?

  1. Melanie my friend, I am back to blogging again and I would be honored to see your face at my place again. I fought to come back blogging. It does not compare to premature babies but I wanted to thank you for your encouragement.
