Five Minute Friday - peace

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 peace.


In 2021, I asked for peace and was met with quite the opposite.
Instead, I found a year of loss. So much sadness.
We found a year of loss and sadness and a year of us walking around crying.
We found a year of constantly trying to figure out what was happening.
No peace.

And then this week a war erupted and an entire world is wondering what is to come.
No peace, just worry, and concern.
Citizens have no idea what the night will bring. What tomorrow will look like.
No peace, just worry, and concern.

Deep, clean breath.
There is so much unknown, so focus on what we can clearly see.
There is so much to worry about, so focus on what brings a sense of calm.

Deep, clean breath.
Go for a walk and inhale.
Take a bath and exhale.
Take a yoga class and sink in.
Work out and shake it off.
Pet my puppy and feel love.
Hug your kids goodnight and linger.

After spending a year crying.
After spending a year upset.
After spending a year bouncing around.
Find a way to let peace in.
Find a way to heal your heart.
Find the peace we all need.
