Five Minute Friday: Living to the Brim

There is some kind of nervousness and excitement that happens on Fridays, when I join Lisa-Jo and so many beautiful bloggers to share my own 5 minutes. I don't know what will come out, and some weeks, I get discouraged before I have started, but then I heard some encouraging feedback from some non-blogger friends about how they enjoy these Five Minute Friday posts. So I pondered that, and I realized that when you just write for 5 minutes, you really write your soul, and sometimes you write someone else's soul. And THAT is worth doing it, even in all of the silly imperfections, weak verbs, run-on sentences, and unfinished thoughts.

So here goes........

Topic: FULL


Some days I just feel filled to the brim. Well, most days, anyway.

Sometimes it is sorrow, pain, hurt, worry, fear, longing, desperation.

Other days, I discover myself filled with joy, peace, dreams, hope, love, excitement.

It is a juggling act, a merry-go-round, a circle that seems to never stop in one place, always moving and flowing from one emotion to the next.

Or is that just me?

Life holds so many bittersweet moments.

I think of that most at an airport. If you just take a moment to look around you, you will see laughter and then tears. You gaze at loneliness and then elation. You take in boredom and then busyness. You see running to make the flight, and leisurely strolls during long layovers. There is something cool about that "in between place." One is neither HERE or THERE.

But I think most of life is like that but we only embrace it in the "airport" moments of our days.

I am full....full of living. Even in the scary times, the hard times, the aching moments where......I just don't know.

I want to live my life to the full, to the brim.

Can I do it?

Jesus, help me.....
