FMF Five

Tammy Breitweiser

A weekly one-word prompt

Every Friday I set the timer and write for 5 minutes on the assigned word and then share.

Get ready…get set…GO!

We are never alone. The number 5 is significant but not as the number 10 for me. I like 10. It is nice and round. It is a double-digit. It rolls off your tongue.

Five is half. Five is kindergarten and one hand. It is the money you carry around in your wallet which makes you not quite broke.

My life has changed a lot over the last 5 years. Many happy experiences I wouldn’t trade. Other obstacles I would gladly throwback like a bad fish. But we are made up of all of our parts and the people we hang out with. Those are an important 5.

I have one important adult I spend time with in real life. The other people who I have contact with are through the internet.

The next 5 weeks will be a big change for me as well. A new job, two new bosses, and two new staffs. I am excited and will do my best to be the best coach I can be while learning and creating along the way. Maybe some more real-life people will come into my circle of concern!
