Take My Advice...

Writing is a great way to learn, and that is one of my favorite outcomes of article writing.

I just completed writing an article that outlines ways to spend quality time with your children. As I interviewed my specialist and began writing the article, I felt more and more guilty. Do I spend enough time with my daughters? Well, of course I am with them a lot of the time, but do I actually take advantage of the time we have together?

No, I do not.

I learned that I need to re-prioritize.

Meals must be cooked, laundry must be folded and yes, sometimes I just need a break. I have realized that those things would happen more quickly if I would first carve out some time with my kids to play and enjoy their imaginative minds.

I am going to make a new commitment to myself and my children. I am going to read my own article and then do what it says!

I wonder what I will learn from my next article...

  1. I've experienced the same thing in my own writing. After writing an article on whole grains, I stopped buying unbleached enriched flour, except for making playdough! I think differently about onions since last summer and have new thoughts about vaccines. Writing really does help with re-prioritizing!
