Five Minute Friday - far

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 far.

I must say, I have come pretty damn far.
For someone who spent most of her life wearing busy like a badge of honor...
for someone who loved her work so much it became her...
for someone who only knew how to push all the limits until she broke...
I have come pretty damn far.

I do not take it for granted that I needed the world actually to stop spinning to make significant changes.
I do not take it for granted that I needed to leave who I was behind and start something so completely different that I couldn't be who I was.
But, I will say that before all of that, I made a decision.
Before all of that, I made some pretty big moves.
And I have come pretty damn far.

Because of that, my family has also come far with me.
My kids see the real me. The one that is warmer, less likely to snap, less likely to be on her last nerve.
My dog gets all of me all of the time.
I am able to be where I want when I want.
I am able to be.
I have new hobbies.
I have changed how I work, how I work out, and how I always needed to go to extremes.
I have come pretty damn far. And so have all of us.

I like this little life I have created for myself.
I like my new environment.
I like my structure.
I like my flexibility.
I like the ability to me more than my work while still loving my work.
I love what I put in and get out of my work.
I have come pretty damn far.

So, to the woman who struggled to see any other way.
Who was so lost and could not find a way out.
Who was so exhausted she only dreamed of nightmares.
Congratulations, you have come pretty damn far.
