Five Minute Friday: Reach

(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)

Five Minute Friday: Reach


Reach is a word of direction and motion.

We reach out.

Reach in.

Reach up.

Reach down.

Reach involves doing something and getting somewhere.

We can reach a conclusion.

Reach for a star.

Reach a goal.

Reach the end of our rope.

Reach is a word that implies non-satisfaction with the status quo.

When we reach, we invite connection…we invite change…

We invite growth…in ourselves and others.
