I've taken up Britt's Manifesto Challenge - what an AWESOME and empowering idea! Here's mine:
Part I: Family & Home
I will love and cherish my family and will not let anyone get in the way of my doing that.
I will not let my dream of having children die...someday it will happen. I will try to remember that while my step children aren't my bio-children, it's not their fault that they're not.
I will always remember how hard my Mother worked to take care of us. My Father will always be my Father but my Mother will always be my Mommy.
Part II: Work
I will do the best job I know how to do and not slack off just because others are.
I will not let my job come before my family or myself EVER again.
Part III: Beliefs
I will continue to work on getting my faith back. I know it's there somewhere.
I will not allow others to take what little faith I have away from me.
I will try to live by the Golden Rule. I know I will fail sometimes but I won't beat myself up when I do.
Part IV: Knitting and Crocheting
I will not let Muggles who don't understand my joy in knitting & crocheting to get me down. When someone says "it's just a pair of socks" I will not run them through with Knit Picks very pointy size 2's. That's some really bad karma.
I will not fear. Fear holds me back from making things like lace and a sweater in my size.
I will not snark other's work, no matter how much I want to. That karma thing again.
Part V: Health
I will work on being healthy again. I have a lot of living, knitting & loving left to do. I am tired of being an American Statistic.
