Five Minute Friday - Dedicate

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 dedicate.

I was once dedicated to one thing.
Not because nothing else mattered but because I thought I didn't matter.
I thought the space I took up didn't matter.
So I put my head down and got to work on things that mattered.

And then I broke. I shattered into a million different pieces and I realized how much matters.
How much I needed to dedicate myself to myself in order to dedicate myself to all of you.
My eyes are open now, I see how the change has mattered. I see how my relationship with you has mattered.

I didn't just put you here, I chose to put you here.
I picked this life so I will be damned if I don't dedicate myself and my heart to it.
I dedicated myself to myself, to you, to our walks, to our time together, to reading, to yoga, to my body, to my rest.

I picked me, you, them, us.
And I have loved my time.
