It’s that time of the week again: Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo! Five minutes to just write…to do the “write” thing! (Corny, yes, but please indulge me.) This week’s topic is Backwards. And unlike previous weeks, I have no clue what I’m going to write about just yet. šŸ˜‰


When I looked up the image for “backwards” (above), I couldn’t help but notice the definition. Backwards has one meaning that I’ve never really considered, but there it was, in black and white. The third (maybe fourth) definition listed said that backwards is “Unwilling to act, reluctant, shy.”

That is me in so many ways. I know that I should do something. But I’m unwilling to put myself out there, to risk being hurt. I am reluctant so very often to act on my own (needing, wanting someone to go with me).

It’s not that I can’t do it on my own. I just prefer some support. Because, well, I’m shy.

Perhaps, instead of this clock here, I should have put a picture of me. In so many ways, I am “backward.” Even though you may not tell, even in person, it is my nature. Maybe it’s time for me to stop relying on others? Maybe it’s time for me to spring forward?

How are you acting backward? Are you reluctant to try something new today?
