So when I was gathering my thoughts to blog I decided to look at the definition for "preparation", I was shocked. It is listed as a noun! A noun!! It really should be a verb!!! Preparation takes work, time, it's action oriented!
- 1 : the action or process of makingsomething ready for use or service or of getting ready for some occasion,test, or duty
- 2 : a state of being prepared
- 3 : a preparatory act or measure
- 4 : something that is prepared;specifically : a medicinal substancemade ready for use
For me to be "prepared". I lay out my clothes the night before (just like I have my kids do!). I make a menu for the week. I've planned crock pot recipes or casseroles that are put together ready to bake for the days I work. I set my alarm really early so I have time to do my quiet time & eat breakfast, then get around and leave in time where I don't have to rush to get to work. Peace is key to me enjoying my little job.
It's been a change, but one I enjoy. I think as long as I prep and keep it stress free it will be something I really enjoy!
