It’s been awhile since I participated in a Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, but I thought I’d try one of the prompts this week.
3.) Begin with “I wish someone had told me…”
I wish someone had told me, when I boarded the school bus for the first time at six years old, how to handle the bullies. Because they would make my school life miserable for the next twelve years.
I wish someone had told me, when I was a teenager in high school, that the other kids that I thought were “stuck up” were most likely just as shy and insecure as I was.
I wish someone had told me, when Marshall was a baby, how quickly the years would pass. (Oh, wait, I think everyone did.)
I wish someone had told me to document the details of every story my Mom ever shared with me.
I wish someone had told me, many, many years ago, to speak up for myself and not be intimidated by everyone and everything. Motor Man was, finally, that someone.
