The baby starts to cry and I’m a sucker. I can’t let him cry so I put my bladder’s needs aside and run (or do the potty dance) to his aide. I can’t help but think that this one action in life is applicable to more then just my bladder and baby.
When you have edits coming along – or if I do, I have a hard time diving into to a new story. Instead I am mentally holding back the new ideas.
Or maybe you have a major project at work or school that is making to hold back a million others.
I am sure there are better analogies, but what else does a mom of a new born think about at 3am? What are you holding back on in order to finish something else?
