Five Minute Friday — Long

Friday. Friday. Five Minute Friday.

It’s time to tackle the prompt … five minutes of unscripted writing, just letting the fingers fulfill the thoughts of the mind. Then I’ll link up with the hundreds of other participants at Kate’s place ( where we’ll share the fruits of our five minutes worth of labor.

So. I’m ready. The prompt for the week is LONG. Let’s start the timer…

It’s been a long day. No, it’s been a long week. No, it’s been a long month.

Here we are in mid October and it seems like it should be, well, later in the month. The time is just dragging. I don’t know why. I can’t figure it out. It’s just been a long month.

Of course, sometimes time actually flies. But not  this month.

Time is relative. There are only 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day. Sometimes, you blink and the days fly by. Sometimes, you blink and the minutes churn at slowneck speed.

That’s where I’m at right now. I plug along minute by minute … hour by hour … day by day. But it’s all moving at a slow speed.

It’s been a long day. No, it’s been a long week. No, it’s been a long, long month. STOP

That’s what I came up with this week.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

    I loved this. It made me chuckle as it is so much like how I have been feeling. Sometimes time goes so slow, but then sometimes it flies faster and farther than I ever imagined.

    Yes! It is a long month and the time change is not coming fast enough!


    • Seems this “longness” is an epidemic. I’ve heard from quite a few people how long this month has been. I don’t particularly like life at breakneck speed … but to enjoy the now and not the nowwwww would be welcomed. Have a great day.

    I’d say you found a Universal theme for everyone I know – it has been a LONG day, week, month. I’m willing the minutes to slow down, so I can fully appreciate and spend them with mom while we still have her…funny, how her best moments (the now) fly by and the difficult moments (the nowwwwww) crawl…


  5. That’s great exercise advice and one I will be doing throughout the day for the rest of my life 😉

    Be A Blessing!
