Five Minute Friday - Focus Writing Prompt

Focus – The Girl Who Twirls


I am not naturally an organized person.

It takes focus for me to make a success out of my day.

Focus and a lot of sticky notes.


I am a person that requires lists and a schedule because,

without one or the other, my day will vanish – POOF –

while I spin in mindless circles or start a hundred things I never finish.


But that’s ok.

Because with a list or a schedule I can accomplish just about anything.

I just need to stay focused on my goals and in putting one foot in front of the other.


Goals for me may be big, but they are always accomplished in baby steps.

If I make a run for the finish the next thing I know I am doing my twirling dance.

You too may be well practiced at it.


Focus isn’t something that has a lot of sticky to it.

Instead of maple syrup, it’s more like ice or the wind.

Either slippery or impossible to capture for long.


So for me, focusing is a constant first attempt.

Followed up every time by the re-focus.

The new list. The new schedule. The next sticky note.


Yes, the new straight path,

awaiting the twirling dancing girl.

to slow down and recognize it,


Waiting solidly there

Until finally, in a move of steadfast victory

I take one more tiny, baby step towards it.


Do any other ADHD minds relate to this?
