Five Minute Friday - Deliberate

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 deliberate.


It's how I move and operate.
I'm deliberate in my actions, I do things with clear intention.
That does not mean I do not act out of emotion or fear or chaos.
That does not mean that I am not at times spastic.
It does mean that my plans and my sights, they are intentional and come with thought, too much thought actually.

It's how I built my home.
With clear deliberate intentions.
I place things around me with the intention of sparking calm, and a feeling of love.
I place things near me that make me smile, and fill me with pleasure.
Because it is so needed in the day-to-day grind of this life.

It's how I built my new career.
With clear and deliberate intentions.
I was no longer going to be all consumed.
I was no longer going to be defined only by my work.
I was no longer going to have to prove that I can do hard things.
I was no longer going to wear busy like a stupid badge of honor.
I started this to be more available, and more able to find the right balance.

It's how I parent.
With clear and deliberate intentions.
I speak to you with thought, I work hard on not giving unsolicited advice and try hard to listen.
I work hard on not overreacting, not overreaching, and being someone you can just come to.
I work on us and work on being playful.
I deliberately lean into the second chance you have given me and I know, full stop, that our time with you is limited.

It's how I love.
With clear deliberate intentions.
I work on my relationships.
I love with reckless abandon and with intention.
I let go when I love. I let go of my walls and my hardness.
I fall into the mush of love.

I move with clear and deliberate intention because I am thinking of you, always.
I am holding you close to me, always.
I want you to know that I carry you, always.
