Five Minute Friday: Rest

For five minutes on Fridays, we write without stopping, without editing, without self-correcting (or letting others peek over our shoulders and correct us!). It is for-fun writing. This week's Five Minute Friday prompt is: Rest.

Rest...I don't feel like I've rested at all in my entire life. I know that can't be true, really, but I hit the ground running, according to my mama, the day that I was born. The last few years especially, it feels like we've gone non-stop, though I know things slowed down significantly while I was sick last year.

There are different kinds of rest. Naps, obviously, are a form of physical rest. Sitting down and watching TV for some people is a form of rest. Reading works for others. Writing is a form of rest for me...sometimes. Other times it is just downright work! These things are a mental rest, of sorts. Cuddling with loved ones can be a great form of physical and emotional rest.

Five Minute Friday posts are always fun and therefore a mental rest for me. It is something that I enjoy participating in. I look forward each week to finding out the new prompt. Please click the button above this post to join in the fun!


  1. Well, well. A Five Minute Friday gal AND a Texas Blogging Gal. Me too. I like your description of all the different forms of rest. I'm going to sleep now, until Hubby gets home in the middle of the night from a LONG trip, and then I'll get some cuddle-rest. Have a blessed day.

  2. I wonder how long anyone has ever felt rested for? Curious little creature! With Joy, Carey

  3. 5 minute fridays are {rest} for me, too! I love the freedom to just go with it. Great post :)

  4. Im a TX blogging gal too :) and I completely understand about writing being a rest one day and not so much the next. These Friday posts are refreshing. :)

  5. Carolyn, Carey, Faith, and Shelly, thank you all for visiting and commenting on my FMF post and howdy, neighbors to Carolyn and Shelly. We're about to celebrate our 7th year of living in TX. :)

    Carey, I wake up sleepy. No matter how many hours I sleep, I am a zombie. haha

    I'm glad that you all enjoy Five Minute Friday, too. Have a wonderful weekend!
