The One That Got Away

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 2:33 pm

two brothers play in rain outdoors Sometimes people, opportunities, new life directions, and more can get away from us. Maybe you missed an opportunity to play in the rain because you thought filing papers was more important when what you really needed was fun. Maybe you broke off a romance because you were afraid of being happy. Maybe a career opportunity, the one you always wanted, showed up at your door but you let it slide by because you were afraid of making people unhappy with your happiness. What got away? Describe it in all its emotional and factual details.

Keep the pen moving,
