Five Minute Friday: Join

Five Minute Friday - So glad to join in today!

Here's to five minutes of writing without worrying about perfection.

Five Minute Friday

We were not meant to stand alone and figure everything out for ourselves. I don't need anyone to tell me this,  I can see it clearly when I watch children.

They gravitate towards each other - joining in the play, even if they don't know how to speak to each other. The games of tag begin or chase or anything, but they enjoy it.

Sure some aren't as into it as others, but even those watch intently, learning how to be comfortable with the situation because the desire to join is huge.

This need to join in the group is why I know we were not meant to be an island.

Sure the fears of rejection or ridicule start to show up even in young children, but we can't allow that fear to override the need to join in and enjoy life.

  1. Isn't it amazing how children's ways can mirror adult situations? I think it's God's way of showing us how simple the answers really are sometimes.

    1. I agree with you completely! Thanks for stopping by Jessica!

  2. Love your blog! As a self-proclaimed book "nerd" myself I can totally relate. Can't wait to dive in and find some good reads...also to link up to Cozy Book Hop Thursday in the future!

    1. As you find some let me know what you think - I love to chat about books with other book nerds!

  3. I love that you've pointed out that we often need to watch and learn so that we can be comfortable joining in. Maybe that's why so many people read blogs without commenting...they aren't quite comfortable joining in yet.


I love comments!!
