I was reading The Prince and the Pauper to the Entropy Machine and saw the Prince’s signet, which he used to prove his identity and save the day.
I was toying with this idea while the Mister was gone and I was cleaning out my jewelry box. I found an old ring of mine I used to wear on my thumb and put it on my index finger. Playing with this idea a bit more, I decided I would have to make a conscious decision to wear the ring. And if I wore the ring, I would have to kickass. The next time you watch Game of Thrones, look for badasses wearing rings.
So, when I get dressed in the morning and I decide what to wear, I have to make the decision, How much ass am I going to kick today? It’s so funny, it’s such a small thing, but it makes such an enormous difference.
In other news, Hi Internet! I have mom hands!! 😀
In any case, making a conscious decision to have a kickass day has done so much for me and my productivity. The one downside, and so far this is the only thing I’ve found, I can’t write very well with my fountain pen. I have to take it off and hang it on my lamp. But when that happens, it means I’m working, so I don’t worry about it. I wonder if I should switch it to my left hand, but I’m already wearing a wedding band and engagement ring and a watch. AND my left index is a touch too small for this ring. So, whatever. I like it here and it works and I kickass.
