My four year old was feeling better, we got our dog back from the vet, school work was through and the evening knocked at my door.
Feeling like a young child inside because free time around here doesn’t happen as much I’d like, I went to my room to fish through the Netflix shows hoping to find something good so I could fold the laundry which was lamenting beneath its own weight.
After about 30 minutes of scrolling, my eyes hurt. I usually prefer British shows, Laura Ingalls types, or the other extreme would be super hero shows, but tonight I could not find anything to suit my fancy.
I’ve cut out a lot that makes me feel weird or heart-racey. I enjoy The Fixer Upper and The Pioneer Woman but no new seasons yet. Sad face.
I got done folding and I turned to my computer. Write.
The thought made me excited. I ENJOY every chance I get to peck away at the keyboard and tell a story, or share a thought, or browse photos first and see what words come from the inspiration of the photo itself.
I remembered it was Thursday and that meant #FiveMinuteFriday. I sat down to check out the scene.
As I was pondering on what to write about, for the word prompt ENJOY, it occurred to me that I now think I rather ENJOY writing than watching things for entertainment.
So tonight I confess to you dear friend that my taste buds have changed. I am 31 and I am finding it harder and harder to like the same things I used to. But that is okay.
Here’s to ENJOYing the taste buds God gave me that are ever morphing in due season. Here’s to less dressy and more converses and slip-ons, more long tunics, skinny jeans and boots.
Here’s to patiently waiting on Joanna Gaines and Ree Drummod to share another slew of episodes, and writing in between -life not hinged on the next cool thing to come out, because I am blazing down this trail God set before me.
Maybe this is God’s way of preparing me for the next season in life. Who knows where it will take me? Life is an adventure you know…
This was a timed, 5 minute free-write with Kate Motaung & the crew for #FiveMinuteFriday. We write swooshingly quick with no edits and then hit publish.
