Five Minute Friday: Goal

So tonight I did something a bit different. Each week we receive a word prompt to write about via the FMF Community. However, in addition to me writing this, I also did a live audio on my author page via FB because one goal is to be consistent in my social media engagement, not just through written posts. Not sure if it’s still the same, but I remember initially, we were to write without editing. The thing with doing audio is once it’s said, and you’re done and reflect, you realize you should’ve said something different.

I did misspeak something when I shared my goal as an author. My purpose/mission is to share the love and grace of God. But my goal is to speak, teach, and train from what I write. As I mentioned in my audio, it takes steps to reaching a goal, whatever it is, and it’s important to know we’ll always have goals that build upon each other to a higher destination.

Doesn’t matter how small the goal seems, what matters is once achieved, you set another one, thereby allowing you to progress, to go up another rung on the ladder, and eventually to a new ladder. (times up)…

Thanks for reading. If you have a love for writing, but often times not sure what to write about, this is a good place to start and stay as we receive weekly word prompts from Kate Motaung via the Five Minute Friday Community Page.

    I love your idea to use the prompt for a video on social media! What a great idea! I might have to try that sometime. Video scares me a little bit. I also really appreciate the idea of goals building on each other. I needed that reminder to build up on top of what I’ve already done. Visiting from FMF!

      Hi Erika. I actually did audio (plus it was late). lol. So, yes, try the audio version, on FB anyway. Not sure of the other social media sites. Thanks for taking the time to read!!

    Y’all inspired a poem. Hope you enjoy it!

    My goals these days are more than modest;
    in fact, they’re quite pathetic.
    But I gotta say, if I’m honest,
    that I have a new aesthetic.
    I used to run ten miles a day,
    and then I’d hit the gym.
    If sore feet got in the way
    I’d do a five-mile swim.
    But cancer is as evil does,
    and God has changed my plans
    from proudly bein’ man I was
    to a slower, softer dance.
    When all I thought I was came broken,
    the man I’m born to be was woken.

    #1 at FMF this week.

      Hi Andrew. Thanks for visiting and sharing? I especially love the part where you say, “When all I thought I was came broken, the man I’m born to be was woken.” Powerful

    I enjoyed reading your post. I think small, manageable goals are good because we can achieve them and then build on them rather than trying to do it all at once. Visiting from FMF #14.

    Thanks for sharing. I recently returned to blogging after a long, long lapse and it’s encouraging to realize that I’m not alone in the struggle.
