Finish is the Five Minute Friday word of the week.
Join the Five Minute Friday community as we blog about the word Finish.
Finish your food. Finish what you start. Finish your homework. Finish is a word that growing up as a child left a mark on my mind. It told me that I couldn’t enjoy my dessert of ice cream and cake until I ate my broccoli. It told me that education was important and I needed to see things through to the end. It told me that completion was a key part of the way I lived my life.
Now as an adult I have learned that finish, defined as to stop doing something because it is completed, can be something more. I can finish loving you or I can finish being afraid of loving you. I can choose to use the word finish to show my growth and maturity as a woman.
I am finished with being fearful. I am finished with being a second class citizen in the world of machismo. I am finished not allowing myself to be loved completely, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I will finish the task set before me to live a life filled with beauty, grace, love, peace, and happiness. I will finish this piece just for you so that you too can experience that sense of completion that you have completed a job well done. #FMF
