Start Something That Matters

1.  READ MORE.

That’s really the short of it.  Stephen King once said, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time (or tools) to write.  Simple as that.”

I’ve only been a mother for over a year, and I’m definitely still in the long process of coming to terms with it.  My personal time has been…well…nonexistent really.  That’s not counting the hour or so I get to myself late at night when everyone’s slumbering away.  That time is usually spent either in front of the world wide web skimming or laying in bed waiting to fall asleep.  The opportunity to really get some in-depth reading hasn’t quite presented itself.  All the intentions are there.  Waiting.  Waiting.  Waiting.  I pick up a book only to put it down.  As much as I love to read, I often feel that I just don’t have the time.

Ah.  Nothing like a glass of wine and a good book to stir it all up.

As an aside, if you don’t already do this, go to a thrift store and check out their book selections.  I’ve managed to pick up a few nice titles last time I went.

So here’s to good habits to develop!  First on my list is to set aside some reading time everyday–separate from the little personal time I have.  Yeah I know.  I’m giving myself a little something something.  But Stephen King said…

Ha!

First on the list?  For inspiration, let’s start with a book my sister let me borrow.  One for One!

If we aren't out on an adventure, we spend most of our days tickling each other on the bedroom floor, making things explode in the kitchen, jumping on piles of laundry before and after washing, or just doing random little things that make life absolutely worth it.
