Five Minute Friday: Comfort

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

Today’s Topic: Comfort


Somehow I got out of the habit of not writing for Five Minute Friday. I actually missed the comfort of knowing that once a week I could just let the words spill out of me without over thinking what I was going to post and if it was going to be epic.

I don’t know about you, but I often find comfort in some of the smallest things. One area, in particular, is habit and continuity. I like having things planned out, so when something is already planned out for me, it’s (usually) even better! I also find comfort in familiarity. I’m probably not alone in these comforts.

Lately I’ve been reaching to food again for comfort and having a really hard time breaking that habit. I’m working on it, and I’m also looking at getting my medications adjusted, because I’m pretty sure that they are contributing to the increased appetite. I’m about halfway to my ultimate weight loss goal, so I don’t want something adding to the already difficult road that I am on.

So what do you find comfort in? Are your comforts positive, negative or a little bit of both. Obviously, I have a little bit of both. That’s probably normal, too.

  1. I find comfort in routine – as I know my children do. It is reassuring to know where we will be everyday, and what activities we will be doing. It is nice to have a surprise every now and then – but it is good to know that at the end of it we will have our routine back.

  2. Thank you for being transparent. Food is a source of comfort for so many. God bless you on your journey!

  3. I have missed doing FMF with you, so was glad to see you back last week :). The one week I did not participate too haha. I too find comfort in the familiarity. Also in desserts quite often, but then sometimes I think it’s ok to indulge (at least for myself). I find comfort a lot in people as well. My pets and certain people in life that feel like home to me.
