Five Minute Friday: Fill

Writing is healing. It's a way to be heard. Maybe not actually heard by anyone, but by the page. Cathartic-that is what writing is. Five Minute Friday provides for a directed form of therapy by giving us one thought to focus on for five soul-cleansing minutes. So without further ado...


Fill. I try to fill my days, my thoughts,my musings so as to focus on what is no longer mine. My mind keeps going back to those thoughts that just keep circling, circling, circling in my head. Bit I can no longer stand hose thoughts. I am getting nowhere focusing on those thoughts. I must fill my mind with other things. I must keep busy enough to keep from obsessing on what I have no control over. So I attempt to fill my days with plans. My actions with projects. I must move on from this rut that gets me nowhere.

And I succeed. I manage to keep myself busy enough, focused enough that I no longer dwell on those thoughts. But they are like a bad penny. One action. One thought. And they are triggered once more. Round and round they go in my head again. I drive myself crazy with it all.

Fill. Fill. Fill my mind with a different refrain. I must escape these thoughts that drive me mad.



  1. How well does it work for you? I try it often. There are times when I succeed in pushing away a hateful thought but on others, it's just too difficult.

    Visiting from FMF,

    1. It takes work, but when I succeed, the relief is priceless.

  2. The rotor is crafted of 22 gold and is adorned with the replica watches of a wind rose, a predecessor to the compass rose found on maps and charts, which enhances the style of this watch as a travelers timepiece. While the final hublot replica will need to be reserved for when we can handle this watch in the metal, I think hublot replica is a really clever watch design from the brand. The rolex watches offers a mix of high durability, replica watches uk versatility, beautiful finishing and a useful complication in the replica watches sale package. Going to be a smashing beautifully executed piece of horology. The detail on the reverse is just as well executed. A bugbear of mine is the watchmaker which acquires a defunct brand in order to buy history, even though the watches it produces have no link to that history. It is an updated version of the original diver watch now featuring rolex watches and Swiss case components and a 2018 rolex replica automatic watches store.
