Know: Five Minute Friday

I’m up early on this Friday morning and listening to the rumble of thunder in the distance. Mother nature is providing quite the soundtrack as I sit down with my coffee to join my fellow writers from Five Minute Friday. This week our prompt is: Know.

There are still a lot of things I do not know. After nearly thirty-two years of life, I still have much to learn about this world. In light of May being Mental Health Awareness month, I wanted to give light to some of my recent ponderings.

I want to know

-Why is success so difficult?

-At what point do we outgrow fear?

-Who decides the standard of health? And can we ever really achieve the perfect picture of health?

-What causes our brains to be so chemically different?

-Where can we be better as a society at promoting mental health?

As we turn our focus this month toward mental health, I want to know how you are making your mental health a priority. Some things I have done recently include journaling, reading, limiting social media, connecting with friends, and trying to be the most authentic version of myself that I can be. I have struggled the past several weeks because the school year is winding down and students are going into Summer Mode. Surrounding myself with a positive community and healthy habits has helped me to get through this slump and to know that this summer will be tremendously beneficial for my health.

  1. Among the very many things
    I wish I might have known
    is that for paupers as for kings,
    fear cannot be outgrown.
    Harnessed? Yes, perhaps it can;
    ignored, certainly not,
    for deep within the soul of Man
    there’s something long-forgot,
    that stinging lash of exile
    from a perfect peace,
    gates close behind when all the while
    the birds sing in the trees,
    and innocence lies cold and dead
    as this wild world yawns dark ahead.

  2. Happy Friday! Those are great questions that I think we all would love to know. I think it’s great that you decided to incorporate mental health into your post.
