This is a tricky one... I guess "doing laundry" doesn't do much to nurture any sparks, but it does give us clean bedding to sleep in later.
What I'm doing today is trying to be aware of myself - and be aware of how my mood affects others. I had a breakdown moment at the end of the day yesterday. Me and baby all day; hubby out of town. Reached the end of my rope, my limit, could give no more and became quite impatient. I'm not good with patience. What ensued was not pretty and I would very much like to not have a repeat of that kind of moment.
So, being patient today - and hopefully all days - is what will make me the kind of self I'd like to live with all my life and the kind of self my husband, daughter and dog will like to be around always as well.

Listening to my heart... if I can get it all written down. Trying to pay attention to what I hear when everything else is quiet... Paying attention to the moments that get me all giddy inside... and to those that don't.
Also, bought that book you suggested. Need to crack it open. :)
