as of late...

At least I make my bed every day...:)
I came to the realization the other day that my summer vacation was just about over...and I lost all motivation. My long to-do list, rather than a motivational reminder, now mocks me.

I sleep too late...because I go to bed too late. (It oughtta be interesting going back to work and having to rise with an alarm...an early alarm. I know, I will adjust. I just hope it's a fast adjustment!)

I sit on the computer...browsing, posting, reading...relaxing...or is it just wasting time? Debatable...it's both. But sometimes I take the "relaxing" a bit too far...and it becomes more like procrastination.

I used to say that I work better under pressure. But I don't think that's true. Yes, I work harder and faster under pressure...but better? I don't think so.

So...yeah. I am kinda stuck. There are so many things to do that I don't know where to start. I made my list. And then I even broke it down into what needed to happen when...what was urgent and what could wait...what I could do and what I could delegate to others. And yet...another day flies by and I didn't accomplish what I wanted to...needed to...intended to...

On the flip side...I could look at what I DID get done...which was quite a bit.  Closets got cleaned out and organized. The garage sale items are sitting in the garage, waiting patiently to be sold. Two major things on my list...eating better and exercising...have been put into play. (This has been a huge accomplishment...and since so much of it is internal it's not something I can actually check off the list...it's ongoing...but it's an accomplishment, still.)

So there's that. Glass half-full, right? So I've been at a bit of a standstill for the past week or so. But...I'm gonna say, "That's OK". And I'm going to sign-off and tackle that hall closet...wish me luck! I'm goin' in!

the two things you are feeling success with - eating better and exercising are huge!! Not just to do list items - more like lifestyle makeovers.

remember, it is called summer
v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n for a reason :)

enjoy the days that remain!
