It’s been a while since I did a Five Minute Friday…or even posted on the blog for that matter. Oops…
Looks like it won’t be back until after the first of the year, so I figured today was as good a day as any!
For those that don’t know, Five Minute Friday is where you take the word given and write about it for five minutes. No editing, nothing. Just write. And then, just stop. Easy peasy.
The word for today is: Reflect
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
I came across this quote recently. It seemed to cover a lot of things that I have been thinking about lately.
On the eve of yet another birthday, as well as the end to another year, I guess it is typical to want to look back..
A year seems to go by so quickly…
But as you get older, it seems that five years goes quickly, or ten.
There have been many choices made, some good, some bad…
We have moved houses quite a few times.
The kids have gone from diapers to almost driving.
This last year has been about settling in. Moving across the country can be exhausting, mentally and physically! (Three cheers for not needing the GPS to go to the grocery store!)
There is a calmness now.
I hope that when I look back again this time next year it will be the same thing… 🙂
Some things don’t make sense until you look back at them. I see that now. So, I will continue living life forward, so that I can understand life backwards.
