Five Minute Friday: Stretch

Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking

Five Minute Friday: Stretch


the moments tick by and i'm not sure what i'm supposed to do next.  file the paperwork, start dinner, tend to the baby...what is most important and which needs my attention first?  which way do i turn and how fast do i run?  these moments, the hard moments of choosing between important options stretch my heart.

no matter what i choose a piece of me is still pulled another direction.  i find myself thinking about that email while i change the diaper or i think about that silly cat with that silly hat and chuckle on a business call.  i'm stretched.  stretched between good things and most of the time that slight tension keeps things interesting. 

sometimes, sometimes it stretches too far and i simply say, i'm tired.  and i rest.  and i condense.  and i pull back.  untill i am ready to be stretched again.



  1. I can relate to this! Often it seems like I forget what I was doing and leave so many things half finished!

  2. I'm with you on this one too! So many things to juggle. So little time to get them all done.
