Again – #fiveminutefriday

Standard

It’s #FiveMinuteFriday!

Every Friday people join a kind of writing flash mob over here.  We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa Jo posts at 1 minute past midnight EST every Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FiveMinuteFriday

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Are you ready

GO

Another perfect word to go with my One Word for 2013.

AGAIN . . .

Is it sad that the first thing that popped into my head were the lyrics from “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake?  I’m going to blame that on the fact that it was playing on the radio as I drove to work yesterday.

This year is all about renewal for me.  Really becoming the person God made me to be.  The person I have always wanted to be.  Not many people get the chance to start over.

To begin again.

Even though there was pain and devastation leading up to this opportunity, I don’t want to waste the chance I have been given.

I don’t want to waste time reliving my past regrets over and over again.  Or being held captive by old mindsets and thought patterns that keep me bound by low self-esteem and negative thinking.

I don’t want to fear starting over again.

I want to embrace it.  I want to discover my dreams and my goals and my purpose again.  

I want to search for knowledge and strive to reach my full potential.  I want to use the talents and abilities I have been given.

So, I have decided to apply to grad school and start working toward my Master’s in Christian Studies.

I’m ready to finally use my brain again.

I just hope it still works.


STOP


Wanna play? Here’s how:

  1. Aww- Cast fear aside and embrace “again”. There is something so beautiful about the word… again. God’s mercies are new everyday and so is opportunity! I pray God guides you on every step of this journey and showers you with blessings of favor! Be encouraged!

  2. That’s awesome. And that’s the perfect song/anthem. I love that we are blessed with the chance to do things again. Let’s just hope we don’t see 80s big hair again. 🙂 Great post! And many blessings ahead as you head off to grad school.
