Preparing Me

Today the humidity lifted. For about a minute.

I MIGHT have detected a slight coolness in the air in between the hot rain showers.

And then it was over and summer lives on.

But I refuse to despair. Because though my hair is still a fuzzy humid mess, I do declare a change is in the air!

In fact the season are truly changing for us.

I feel it coming, I sense it’s near. And in my life I feel an urgency to prepare for these changes. It’s an urgency in my heart that is manifesting in my work, in my schedule, in my self-care, in my relationships, and in my home. Yet distinctly the admonishing in my heart says, in all the preparing, don’t forget about Preparing Me.

Welcome to 31 Days of Preparing Me

I am again joining the annual 31 Days writing challenge to write through this season of preparation. I want to move forward the preparations in my life as our adoption draws near, my latest business venture launches and my personal life grows in health. This year it’s a double challenge! I am also challenging myself to do this in just 5 minutes of free writing a day.

I invite you to read (and write) along with me. I treasure your comments and encouragement and want to hear where you are at too. Let this be a month of forward making progress!
