1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Today the word is: SEE

************************************************

See. See. See……..how do I see?

Do you ever feel like you are going through life or at least through some of your days, but not really opening your eyes? I feel that way sometimes. Going through the motions. Stuck in the rut of routine. Not really looking….too focused on the end result.

And I miss it.

I miss the moment. The “ah ha” realizations. Both the silly and the profound.

It’s difficult. I’m sure that you as readers can relate. Life becomes busy, hectic, frazzled….especially, as moms, many times we have laser beam focus. I want to get to the finish line of the day. Get everything done. Push through the tape at the end of the race.

Fall into bed exhausted and spent.

And in the quiet of the darkness realize that you did not live this day with your eyes wide open. What did you really see?

Look around. See the moments for what they are…..pieces of life’s puzzle. Tuck them in your heart.

And lay your head on the pillow at night, knowing……..knowing that you have looked, and really seen.
