While waiting out early pregnancy's morning sickness (aka all-day nausea/dizziness/etc), I developed a plan of action for my months before Ramlet's arrival. Some of the items were practical, like finding a new place to live and moving. Some goals involved art and creations I worried would never materialize with a newborn's incessant schedule.
|Counted Cross-Stitch: more tedious than morning sickness.|
|Do not be deceived. The smaller book is much, much longer. Sneaky tiny font.|
I'm going to fail, often, but I'm not going to let that be a deterrent from trying. So I'm going to respect other people's time by being on time. Instead of being lazy with my words I'm going to use precise language (for example: "I hate poopy diapers" when I mean "Poopy diapers stink!"). And, yes, I'm writing every day--even when I only find time to scribble down a few notes. Someday I may want to finish that novel or simply remember the first time Ramlet hugged me back.
Have you ever used a major life transition to craft a better you?
