It's Five Minute Friday with The Gypsy Mama.
We receive a writing prompt and have five minutes flat to write.
Our word for today is ...FOCUS.
I've always been one who needs total quiet to really focus. When I would do homework as a kid, I couldn't listen to music at the same time. I would become distracted too easily.
My husband has the ability to focus. He can block everything else out and have that razor sharp focus. I admire that about him. That's something that has helped him be so creative and entrepreneurial in his career.
I tend to do many things but never perfectly. It takes too much effort, time and I tend to enjoy many distractions. After all, I am a popular sanguine personality.
However, I've learned that there are times in my life when FOCUS is needed. I can't always stay in the generalities of life. Is that a word?
I've been trying to live more intentionally. And that requires me to focus on what's really important. With limited time and resources I want to focus my energy on what God has gifted and called me to do. With much prayer and focus on Him, I know I can do it. Not Debbie, but Christ in me. And then He gets all of the glory.
So are you focused? Or are you distracted?
Blessings and love,
