Practice Makes Perfect

I am a practicing quitter.

I am a practicing artist.

I feel like an imposter each day in my studio;

I try each day to do something related to art (even if it’s only thinking about creating)

And

I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to stick with it

I am a practicing quitter.

I feel like an importer each day, each blog

I try not to smoke or think about smoking every day

And

I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to stay quit

I am a practicing mom

I feel like an imposter who’s messing up in every moment

I try each day to learn something new about mothering and to discover something new about my child

I’m not sure how I’m doing but I’ll never stop learning and growing as a mom

So maybe it’s just one if those things

It takes time to grow into it

Fake it till you make it

Practice it till you perfect it

You are what you do

Create

Nurture

Don’t smoke

I’d like to thank pregnets for creating this opportunity to blog about my journey. I have to admit I am scared about no longer having this venue in my life but thanks to the internet I will always have my own words to refer to in weak moments and I will continue to read the blogs of others with similar struggles. To all the blogging pregnent folks and new parents, take care of you and yours and I will continue to do the same.
