Jan 17th & 18th Prompts

One-Minute Writer Prompts

January 18th – Parent
If you are a parent, how did you feel when you first found out you’d become one?
If you’re not a parent, how do you think you’d feel if you got that news?

Well, considering that I am not a parent, the second portion of this prompt applies to me. How do I think I’d feel if I discovered I was a new parent? If I was married and trying to get pregnant, I’d feel great. This would be amazing news for me and my husband. I do want to someday have children, so this day will come for me. I do hope however, that it comes when I am ready and have been actually trying to have kids. Of course, things will work out when the Great One above wants them to.

January 17th – Rest
Do you have a weekly day of rest? Write a bit about this concept.

Ah, a day of rest, that’s the life, eh? When I hear this phrase, thoughts of palm trees and sunny afternoons by the pool cross my mind. Alas, that is just a stereotypical scene. Just like a vacation, it is a vision of what we hope said day or days would be like.
Realistically, a day of rest for me does occur. I tend to utilize most of my weekends for rest. I try to mentally and physically allow my body to relax during that time as much as possible. Even a few hours of rest feels great. For me, an afternoon where I can be out with my camera taking pictures or writing in a quiet place is relaxing and enjoyable.
