Today’s Five Minute Friday work is “fresh”! If you’ve never heard of Five Minute Friday’s, you must just skip over that day 😉
You can read more about it on the Five Minute Friday blog HERE
I’ll just get right into it…
If you hang around me long enough you’ll pick up on something that would make you believe that I either don’t know what time it is or I have no idea how to read a clock. Why? Because I always say Good Morning!
Day or night, night or day, saying good morning means more to me than just a salutation to use in the early parts of the day.
Truth be told, when I was a music leader for a small Church and we transitioned to Saturday nights from Sunday mornings I did have a hard time changing my salutation from good morning to good evening.
but I digress. Where was I? Oh yeah,
…as I put some thought into it I started to reflect on what good morning means.
For me, saying something is good, means it has a worthiness. Morning, especially when there is coffee involved, is filled with opportunities and experiences and adventures not yet known. It is almost the exact definition of the word fresh!
So that simple salutation morphed for me into that of a well wish AND a reminder that every moment is an opportunity for great things, just like the start of a brand new (fresh) day!
Since I still have a few moments left in this five minutes… let me encourage you to seek out things you do not already know. Seek through the challenges & struggles to find the wonders and joys in the little things; the things others would miss. And then most importantly, share that gift with someone.
You’ll both have a fresh perspective on life!
talk to you next time,
