Thank you to Kate for her work at five minute Friday!
Today’s Five Minute Friday writing prompt is: POTENTIAL
Each week the challenge is to gather to write for five minutes flat on a single writing prompt.
My writing today: Potential
The first thing that comes to mind with the word POTENTIAL is the phrase “Live up to your potential”. My feelings about this phrase have changed over the years, to be honest. The phrase is supposed to be motivating but there is an underlying concept in my mind that is tied to self-worth, intrinsic work ethic, and participating in what is essential to your life.
I have the POTENTIAL to accomplish a lot in my life and in my days but the decision come down to what is appropriate for my life at that moment.
I have the potential to be the best _____________ (fill in the blank) Writer, reader, parent, wife, teacher, coach, etc. But something new means time to focus on the research and the process.
I am extreme and can get hyperfocused on a task. This isn’t a bad idea necessarily but will then pull time from other things that need to be done.
I fulfill my potential every day by creating and looking to the future.
The October challenge starts Monday! Join us for this year’s edition of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes — the Five Minute Friday “challenge within the challenge” of the larger annual Write 31 Days opportunity.
