My word for today is concentration. That is because I am often my own worst enemy. For instance, I'm feeling a little bored today. Oh, I have PLENTY to do, but I really don't feel like doing it.
Do you ever feel that way?
I want to DO something, but just don't know what that something is yet. It isn't a good feeling to have. And all the things I should be doing? Well, I want them to just magically get done, I suppose! LOL
This feeling reminds me of the process I went through in July, when getting into the diet mode. I knew what I should do, and even how to go about doing it, but I just couldn't bring my mind around to making the effort.
I had to more or less force myself to get on the diet wagon (again) - despite myself.
And, of course, once I got into it, and told myself to suck-it-up and adjust my attitude, I started to change my life.
So, today I am battling the "I don't want to" attitude, about the many chores I have to get done today. I am using vacation days (today and tomorrow), so I BETTER use them wisely. I have lots of holiday decorating left to do, errands to run, hubby's gifts to wrap (that is, items I bought to give him for Christmas). This is not the time to proscrastinate. It is time to concentrate!
I know that once I get into the day's chores and actually see something accomplished, I'll soon get over this mood I'm in. That is what happened in July, anyway. I wanted to lose weight, but I just didn't want to diet. LOL
THAT clearly wasn't working for me. Once I concentrated on the task, however, and weight started to come off, I finally got back into the right frame of mind.
So, when I need a break from the household decorating, I'll be popping in on Blogland, to read up on the blogger family. For now, it is time for breakfast. Then, of course, I need to stop with the excuses and start with today's wish list of chores to accomplish!
It is going to be one of those days ...
Day 138, and too lazy today, for my own good.
