Baby steps

Have you ever looked back and wondered how you missed the obvious?

On Monday I was thinking about how to mark the beginning of my maternity leave.  It seemed like a milestone.  Yesterday I was wondering about how my writing practice will look in my new, less-structured days.

Then today, Jamie’s wish prompt showed up: “What step do you wish to take?”

Suddenly, I remembered how I’ve marked every big life change since I was sixteen.  My final year of school, every big trip, the beginning of relationships, any big new start that I can see coming.

I start a journal.

I wish to start a new journal for the next twelve months.  My record of my time at home.  Maybe this journal?

Duh!  It ties up my writing practice, my new life, the baby…  why didn’t I think of it earlier?

Thanks for the prompt, Jamie!
