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?
