The other morning when I couldn’t sleep, my mind wandered as it tends to do. I thought about all the things I’ve said in the past that I will never ______. Do you have any of those? Have you had to explain your new stance on things?
So, this week’s prompt is all about the “I nevers” in your life.
One of my nevers from several years ago was I will never ____ drive a soccer van. Well, guess what I’m driving? After a few extra blessings, we had to upgrade our main family vehicle to accommodate child seats, etc. But in the near future I will be stepping down to a more likable size. (To me, anyway)
Another more recent I will never ____ is texting. I said I had no use for it and didn’t see the point. One of my writing friends, who shall remain anonymous, said one of her goals for last year was to get me texting. I don’t know why I resisted so long, maybe because I didn’t think anyone would text me. Alas, I am also texting. And I enjoy it. I feel relieved that I can see if someone is available when I text rather than calling them when they might be driving or in a meeting.
So, what are your nevers? How did it go when you made the change? Did anyone give you a hard time or just welcome you to whatever it was? Share with us!
