Five Minute Friday - morning

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 morning.


They look different now, but still my favorite time of day.

What was once a 4am wake up call to get me started on my never-ending workday is now a 6am workout class.

That never-ending workday has gone away too.

What was once a day I could not manage is now me in charge of how I spend my time, my mornings.

What was once just me, alone in the dark, is now still just me but after seeing them all off.

What was once a long highway commute is now a walk with the puppy, our favorite time of day.

What was once too early, is now just right.

What was once so stressful is now so different.

What was once a feeling of dread and a weight I could not carry, is now me lifting weights I never thought I would be able to.

What was once always rushing is slower now, more intentional, more realistic.

What was once leaving my home as quickly as I could, is now me loving the comfort of this place I love so much.

What was once my favorite time of day, still is, it's just different now.

    I love this! I hope to spend my mornings like you do; but I've got about 2 more years to go before it will happen.

    Love that the dread and the weight you carried is gone!

      I cannot wait for you to get here. I am so happy it is gone too, it was an awful time in my life and I so hope you are not there.

    Nicely done! A lot of thoughts and meanings in few words. (I so totally struggle to do that!) God bless you at this season of your life!
