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, https://fiveminutefriday.com/2022/03/17/fmf-writing-prompt-link-up-easy/we publish those words. This week, we write on easy.
If it were easy, everyone would do it.
Everyone would get up early.
Everyone would hit the gym hard.
Everyone would work hard.
Everyone would be able to do it.
If it were easy...but it's not.
Life has a lot of ups and downs.
Life has a lot of beauty, a lot of easy.
But it also can be hard at times.
And then there are times when I just make it harder.
To prove myself, to push myself, to make sure I still can.
But, it's okay. It's more than okay.
It's how I was wired and I have learned how to calm it down when I need to and turn it on when I have to.
Like my work, I love my work and I love working.
I use it to escape, and also because I'm good at it and that feels good.
So I work hard at it.
Like my workouts.
There will come a day I can't do what I do today.
But, because of my diagnosis, I want to make sure I keep pushing that day as far back as possible.
I want to keep moving and doing.
I want to push myself, hard.
But what does come easy for me...
routine, doing, loving with all I have...
traditions and caring and smooches and squeezes...
naps and baths and taking care of those I love.
There definitely are things that come easy for me and things that I do for the ease of it all.
So yes, I push, I do the hard work, I do what comes naturally to me and I do the things that feel right.
Sometimes easy, sometimes hard, sometimes comfortably, sometimes out of my comfort zone,
If it were easy, everyone would to it.
