I got my kids off to school alive (always a bit check mark on my to do list). I went to the gym (an easy one to take OFF my list). Additionally, I got several significant ‘no fun’ items done. On top of all that, I reduced the Mount Ranier sized pile of laundry to a hill.
I am not writing this to stroke my ego; I’m writing this in a bit of shock and awe. I really don’t know how I got from here to there in terms of my motivation and drive to get things done, despite the desire to crawl in bed for the full day. In fact, I did crawl in bed for a 20 minute nap and still was able to get up and contribute today.
My hunch is that my normal ‘trick-myself-into-doing-things’ was on autopilot today and I was able to set small goals to get a little done which then lead to more than expected getting accomplished.
I am excited to see that it just might be possible to have habits become so fluid that you don’t have to do the pep talks and pats on backs after a while. Another possibility is that the full moon actually HELPED me take action even in my depleted energy. That possibility is fine with me too…because I like looking at the check marks on my list (the list remained in my head today – I couldn’t be bothered to write it down).
