"P" is for Practice
Practice is a word I'm going to use more often. I like it's flavour. To me it's a friendlier word than "doing". When you say you're "doing" something, there's an expectation of mastery or accomplishment. There's less pressure if you say your practicing something. Practicing implies there's room for improvement, that you're a work in progress. It allows for encouragement from others, and helps to connect you with other "practicers". When someone asks you what you're doing, tell them your practicing... your writing...your cooking....your parenting....whatever it is. They'll understand that practicing means you're not perfect.
