Freaky Friday #2

Today is Friday so that means it's Freaky Friday. To learn more about this journal writing challenge please read Freaky Friday #1.

This week I'm challenging you to step inside your five year old self. This might be a difficult task for some of you. If you feel writing from yourself at this age is simply too daunting, please choose a happy moment to recall and write about. If you feel it's too much, please choose another age or person for today. My desire is to help you capture some of your innocence at that point of time.

I was inspired by a photo on my whiteboard of my daughter in pre-primary school. She wore her hair loose around her face, something she never does now at 20, and her face was painted as a lion. It made me realise how much she had changed and yet how much she had remained the same. Write in your journal about yourself at this age and see what you come up with.

If you feel inspired, please share your response in the comments section below, or a link to your blog.

    I don't *ever* seem to have much difficulty stepping into my five-year-old self, Heather. It's being a consistent grown-up that I find difficult LOL!!

  2. Lol, Cyndi,
    your comment really made me smile. It's interesting, though, some people didn't have a very good childhood, so I always approach these things with caution. I love doing these prompts myself, though. Being a grown up is harder, in my opinion. Thanks for your comment. ;-)
