Five Minute Friday - impulse

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 impulse.

To cry and be emotional.
To be upset and then upset at me.
But also to laugh.
To love, so so hard.
To lean heavily into a routine but also to love a little adventure.
To bet my life on us.
To protect what I love, and especially our littles' childhood.
To love them with all I have, all I know, all I am.
To celebrate us, as many anniversaries and celebrations as I can think of because they are all so important.

I have an impulse to work as hard as I can.
But I am now learning to find the right balance.
I have an impulse to prove I can do hard things.
But now I'm done proving myself to me.
I have an impulse to work my body hard.
But now I am learning to fall in love with what it can do for me, what it has done for me.
I have an impulse to speak ill of myself. Make myself the reason for such heartache.
But now I am learning that I have to protect myself, a little harder.

I have an impulse to stare at you, while you're sleeping, or watching a show, or working on a project.
My impulse is to not take my eyes off of you and to take every single part of our time together.
I will never give that up.

I have an impulse to adore you. To love so deeply that I feel it somewhere deep in my bones.
My impulse is to love with all that I have or not at all.
I realize that is a gift and a flaw.
