I’m INTRODUCING a New Feature Today
I had so much fun putting together my new subscription giveaway, “Seven Things I Wish I Knew Before I Joined the Peace Corps,” (Have you subscribed yet? It’s easy) I thought I might let you take a spin at it.
THREE THINGS I wish I knew before … will run weekly until my ideas (and yours, feel free to suggest new ones) run out. I’ll try to keep each post to 250 words or fewer (this one’s a bit longer). Let’s see what we come up with.
I’m not talking about listing our regrets here. No “if only” allowed. I’m looking back in acknowledgment. Appreciation. Gratitude.
For one thing, we can see how far we’ve come. Give ourselves a little pat on the back. Bring a smile to our faces. And, just maybe, if we’re lucky, we can learn a bit too.
Anyway, let’s give it a try. Here’s the first one:
Small print: There are no
right wrong answers. But there are prizes! Or at least there should be. Stay tuned; I’ll come up with something. Maybe. Probably not actually.
THREE THINGS I wish I knew before I left home.
Yup, that’s the first one. I had to decide just what “left home” meant to me. I came up with when I got married. But “leaving home” may be different for each of us.
For you, it might have been when you went off to college, when you got your first apartment, perhaps even when you went off to summer camp for the first time. Or had your first sleep over at a friend’s house. It’s whatever you decide it is. As is your definition of home.
But let’s not over think this.
Let’s have fun.
Here is my list of three things I wish I’d known before I left home:
- That I didn’t have a clue how to run a house, but I could still do it.
- That I could run a house and have a full-time job, but I couldn’t do both perfectly.
- That not doing everything perfectly is OK.
Now it’s your turn.
Wednesday: I’m still trying to understand the upcoming Goodreads/Facebook Brain to Book Cyber Convention (or B2BCyCon), which I’ve promised to participate in April 8 – 10. Wednesday’s blog will tell us whether I’ve succeeded or not.
