Six Word Fridays: spring


What I like about being busy

is how boredom gets obliterated.

Who has time for yawns when

life is leaping with unbridled opportunity?

Like a  helical spring stretching, bouncing

forward. End-over-end momentum until experiences

form and reform into something new.

Monotony kicked on its ass – again.

It’s Six Word Fridays and today’s prompt is spring! I have a lot going on this year – personally and professionally. And instead of fearing failure, I’m embracing opportunity.

Leaping, hopping, skipping right into it. If I scrape my knees along the way – well now, that’s a life lived.

Now tell me, what goals and dreams are you springing towards?

    Your Slinky brings back memories. A great analogy.

    Embracing opportunity: so much better than fearing failure. (I say, as though I do not routinely choose option B…) 😉

    I agree with Melissa. I choose too often option b.
    good luck with option a! 🙂

    I have fond memories of sitting on a staircase playing with a Slinky when I was young. Thanks for selecting that illustration.

    I love this line “End-over-end momentum until experiences

    form and reform into something new”

    Yes, the yawns do surprisingly disappear.
