Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes a day or two in advance of this post going up. (I’ll eventually get to actually writing on Saturdays.) For now, though, I’m setting my timer, pre-writing my post and scheduling it to go up so my fine blog friends can link up on Saturday mornings. Or Sunday, if that’s easier for you.
So, the rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
Do you have the Timehop app? It’s one of my favorite apps and I check it daily. I’ve been kind of feeling anxious about it lately. I didn’t completely know why until Friday morning.
I’m less than a month away from my tweet/Facebook post about being laid off. It was a very surreal time and I remember the super encouraging feedback, but it was also a day that sent me into unknown territory – and a sometimes scary few months.
I have an entire post I started months ago about what it was like being laid off. Those moments of being in that office. And what occurred in the hours/days after. I need to just hit publish. I don’t know what’s holding me back. (I actually feel like it’s going to happen again to people close to me. Maybe they’d benefit from reading what really happens. Maybe I’ll just benefit from letting it all out.)
The Timehop app, though. It’s normally a shiny, happy place for me. Especially the past 3 years when I have pregnancy/cute baby updates to read back on . Good times. (Also, I try not to be super down/negative on social media, which has been good for me up until this next month. Then I’m just anxiety-ridden.)
And, that, my friends is five minutes. I hope you’ll link up!
