Five Minute Friday: Fight

on January 3, 2014

This year, I have challenged myself to write more and become more active within the larger blogging community. Today I will be joining up with Lisa Jo Baker for her Five Minute Friday. This is when a group of bloggers get together and write on one word for 5 minutes. No editing or over thinking, just simple writing for 5 minutes and seeing what happens. Our word for this week is: Fight.


It’s the beginning of a new year and as per usual, I have written a set of resolutions that are either new for the coming year or recycled from the past. I don’t take many of them that incredibly serious, and it shows at times (trust me when I say I’m not shopping for smaller clothes each year).

So these New Years Resolutions end up becoming my new set of opponents. What am I going to throw into the ring and fight this year? Do I laugh them out of the ring? What do I do next? How do I approach this situation? Do I give it the time of day? Even set aside the proper amount of time for them? Or do I ask my Coach for help?

It’s a fight.

I’ve got my gloves on.
