Five Minute Friday {Change}

I came across this blogging activity called "Five Minute Friday" on the blog Lisa-Jo Baker's Tails from a Gypsy Mama via Blue Eyed Bride.

Five Minute Friday

The rules?
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back on her blog.
3. And then visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.

I tend to be both long winded and a I thought linking up with this activity might be a great blogging exersize for me! So bear with me if this post is random, or cryptic, and has tons of grammar errors. I am going to try to stick to the rules as much as possible! So here I go...I'm setting the timer...

This week's theme: Change.


I like to think I'm the type of person who really likes change, embraces it. I took pride in that part of myself in my younger years. I was proud that I wanted to be away from home for college. I was excited to do a semester in Australia. I was ready to graduate and head to the next stage of my life (grad school) when college was ending.

But thinking back on it now, especially in recent years, change makes me really uncomfortable. I know it's a necessary part of life. But when I develop close friendships or comfortable habits....I don't like when those things really change.

Growing apart from friends is really painful for me. I think its the worst kind of change. Although I do think that it can be has been for much as I really truly hate it.

But I know things can't always stay the same...or else we wouldn't have anything to look forward to...there wouldn't be room for anything new....


Ohhhhhh man when that timer went of!! Bah! I had more to say!!! I wanted to elaborate! But there you have open and honest mind rambling about change....written in 5 minutes flat! I think I'll do more of these....


  1. Beware...participating in 5 minute friday can become addicting! (psst---and it's something new that you appear to enjoy!!)

  2. Good post, thanks for sharing.

  3. Welcome to our FMF community! One of the hardest lessons I have learned about friendship in the past few years is that some friends are only given for a season while others are forever friends. It still hurts my heart to grow apart from a friend and I still fight hard to keep them in my life, but sometimes that just isn't meant to be. Thanks so much for sharing! Blessings!

  4. Nice one! Yeah, I'm grateful my poetry tends to be short normally or there is NO WAY I would be able to use FMF as a poetry prompt. LOL! Thanks for sharing and may you find new lasting friendships. :)

  5. Nice...I like the five minute least I can stay focused for that long! lol
