Five Minute Friday: Focus

The rules: Write for five minutes. No editing, revising, or over thinking. Just write.

Today’s Topic: Focus


Oh, Focus. You and I are but distant acquaintances, not close friends like we should be. I am easily distracted and tend to let my mind wander when I should be focusing.

Just like now.

The more I think about what to write, the less the words come to my head, and then…

Oh, look at that shiny thing over there! I have new mail! There’s a Facebook Notification! I need to check that person’s blog! Oops, I need to pay that bill! When is my next appointment? What should I cook for dinner? I should start on my grocery list!

Yeah, that’s me.

I’m working on it, though. Starting this week, I am following an online Bible study on Contentment that will likely contribute to better Focus. I’m eating better, exercising and living a healthier lifestyle. That’s got to count for something, too! Next I’m going to see about getting more rested sleep or find out what might be causing my restless sleep.

But yes, Focus. See? I almost got off the subject again. It’s a challenge for me!

“We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right.” – Marianne Williamson

  1. Thank, Tonya! I can only do Five Minute Friday by setting a timer and going outside with a WORD doc open and all else closed. Focus is so tough – and yet, it is the key to all success.
    Best wishes to you 🙂
