Five Minute Friday - try take 2

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on try.
Go.

The last time I wrote about this word, I wrote all about our fire.
I wrote about how you need to keep going, keep trying, keep giving it your all.
This week, I want to tell you that what I love most about you Anna is that you are willing to try anything.
You always try.

Anything we throw your way, you give it your all.
You really put your best foot forward, you never say no to a new challenge or option.
Actually, it excites you.
And so when I hear you say "yes!" to something new, it warms me up because you always try.

As you get older, I don't know if this will stay with you.
I don't know when the world will grab hold of you and tell you that you aren't good enough for something.
I don't know when fear will stop you.
I don't know if those two things will ever happen
because right now, in front of me, is a girl that accepts challenges and new.
A girl that always tries.

I wasn't like that until I was much older.
When I was a kid, I always scared to try.
Until I got older and realized that I needed to try new things to open up new opportunities for me
and now? Now I try to prove to just me that I can.
Most times, I am trying too hard.
At proving myself
at my job
at my health
at my everything.
You? You try because you just always try.
There is no question, there is no fear, there is just you and your willingness
to try.

Stop.

Five Minute Friday - try

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on try.
Go.

With all my might,
with all I have,
with all you have.
It's the only way to move forward, the only way to move on, the only way to succeed.
You will fail, but it's a much more dramatic failure if you don't try.
New things, old things, just keep trying.

Most times I try something new, push myself a little harder, I do not succeed.
I do not become a master at it.
Swimming, yoga, marathons, but I just won't stop trying.
Even if I feel deflated, letting myself down, I will keep trying.
Not to become the master, but to prove that I have will.
I have strength, and I have the commitment to myself.

So, don't worry if you never win the race,
or make the winning shot.
Don't worry if it takes you longer than everyone else to understand the material,
or put all the puzzle pieces together,
just have this fire in you.
Keep trying, don't let go of your fire.
It's the one thing you get from me, and I won't watch it burn out.

Stop
