My 5 Minute Fridays

Unexpected Vacation // Five Minute Friday

I took a vacation from blogging. It wasn’t intentional, but it was necessary.  I’ve spent my evenings interacting with family, decluttering, reading free books on my Kindle, binge watching shows on Hulu and Netflix and just enjoying the feeling of not having to write. After all, when the writing becomes work, it’s time to step away to refocus.

Vacation = the action of leaving something one previously occupied.

Although in many ways it was a restful time away, there is an ongoing, internal struggle in my soul and I’m fighting to get myself back to a place of normalcy,

The Blessing Of Routine // Five Minute Friday

It’s that time again, where I get to join the beautiful community of Five Minute Friday writers.  Each week we write for just five minutes on a word prompt. No editing or overthinking.  No worrying about perfection. Just words freely flowing from our heart to yours.  If you’ve never written a Five Minute Friday post, you should. It’s easier than you think (but sometimes a little hard).

This week’s prompt is:
