I find it appropriate that “dive” is the prompt for this week’s Five Minute Friday. It’s been quite awhile since I participated and I feel like I’m leaping into something again.
So, here’s 5 minutes of unedited free writing on “dive.”
Sometimes you hold your breath, protecting yourself in an unfamiliar environment. Sometimes you jump in feet first, hoping to impress everyone with your big splash.
Then there is that perfect one, where everything comes together so unified and serene. Not a ripple is seen and people barely realize that you’ve arrived.
I tended to go for the big splash, because I was afraid of being missed…unnoticed. Even if its messy, it draws attention.
I’ve come to realize that the one that produces the best result is the quiet, calm, deep-breath beforehand, smooth glide into the water. That’s when it works best, because its not always important to be seen. What’s most important is remembering to point your toes at the end.
When it all goes right, and everyone just thinks that’s how it happened on its own.
Thanks for stopping by, and check back next week to see what’s kept me so busy away from the blogging (and there just might be a giveaway)!
