FMF – blue

Happy Friday readers –

Today marks another five minute Friday – that time if the week when a group of people from across the world spend five minutes free writing – and its my favourite part of the week –
I love nothing more than expressing myself with my writing.

So here we go – today’s word is blue – this is a good one.

Ready, set, go…

When you are feeling blue what do you do?
Take a day off work?
Sit down in your PJs with a cup of tea?
Have a duvet day?
Watch sad movies?
Go to your happy place?

Or do you do this…


Well I must admit I have less black days now..but more blue days.
But when I have a blue day, I like to listen to music.
Music can help to chase my blues away –

‘When your weary, feeling small.
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all.
I’m on your side, when times get rough’

But I digress.

When I feel blue – nothing cheers me up more than my happy place.
To escape into a place (ironically) surrounded by blue.. Blue skies, the blue ocean…maybe even a blue cocktail 😉
Blue may be considered a general cold colour or the colour of sadness..


But when I sit in front of the blue ocean, with waves lapping around me how can I feel sorrowful?!

Looking at the blue sky surrounding me, it clears my mind and washes away my sadness.

Blue is not always so sorrowful.


I wanted to talk about my baby boy today – but this free writing always takes me in unexpected directions ☺

What do you do to chase the blues away?

  1. Charlotte, we share two favorite activities: looking up at the expanse of blue skies (where God’s creativity is on full display) and being near the ocean (there is something so calming about doing so). I am thankful for the way God ministers to us through His creation. Indeed, “Blue is not always sorrowful.” Visiting from FMF. Blessings.

  2. And can’t we be thankful for the depth and complexity of life that this represents? That we can be both blue-sorrowful about some things and at the same time be blue-skies and blue-waters about others. What a blessing this variety is! Thanks for your post. Stopping by from FMF ~Katy
