Having the new responsibility of taking care of a dependent human being undoubtedly requires me to prioritize. I wrote about prioritizing about a month ago, but thought I’d bring it up again now that our son is here and Daniel made the point that his survival is solely based on our care for him. So with that in mind, every moment is spent discerning what is the priority. This can be a challenge sometimes when my need for food has to be put on the back burner because Zane is crying for me. Zane is teaching me great lessons though, in that I am learning that I need to let go of my past (useless) tendencies to want to shop online a lot and spend time doing miscellaneous things that brought no value to my day or life. Now, it’s a matter of trying to get his and my basic needs met. If I can accomplish that in 24 hours, I have succeeded.
Next week (fingers crossed) I will be back to writing new material.
