Five minute Friday: Willing

Today's writing prompt is WILLING.


I must admit, it took me a good stop-and-pause for me to think about that word. Ideas came up to me, "well, what are you willing to do?". I couldn't think of anything in particular. Most of the time, I like to think of myself as very open and brave...willing. If I am honest with myself, the real thing I deal with is why I am NOT willing.

What I will myself to do, and what I'm willing to do- what stops me from crossing over is fear. I let fear get in the way of trying, or being 'willing' to try. Being open to failure. There are so many great things to be experienced in failure, why wouldn't anyone want to be more willing to do something crazy, scary, daring, unexpected.  Of course, as long as these things don't get in the way of your conscience :)

Today, reflect on how you want your life to be daily characterized by the attitude of willing. It won't be easy, but I'm sure it will be worth it. Fight yourself and it's tendencies to be 'safe'(or rather, in control), and walk in bravery that will accomplish things through strength that comes from above.

OK done, i want to write more, but of course, I'm rushing.

Have a blessed day.

  1. Ah, equating safety with being in control--that's the crux of it, isn't it? We want to be in control--which we never truly are--but the bigger the chance, it seems, the more control we have to relinquish. So true. Great post--thank you!
