Five Minute Friday: Collect

Another Friday and another chance to link up with Kate Motaung and the FMF community.

Five minutes of free writing on the prompt. Today’s word is collect.


The first thing that comes to mind is sea shells.

Searching in the sand for the pretty ones. Cleaning them off, letting them dry, showing them off.

Then my mind turns to collecting friends– one of the very most valuable collections you can make.

Because when the work life is over, when positions and titles and budgets are stripped away, what remains are the relationships.

The investment you make in friendships pays dividends.

The friends you collect along the journey are the ones that help you get through the rough patches of road.

So many collections we can invest in. Why not collect friends?

    Best “things” to collect!! I wish I had developed relationships more when I was younger instead of let the positions and titles get in the way! A mentor once asked me if I lived more transactionally or relationally and that has always stuck with me.
