Day 7

Day 7

The last thing I want is for this blog to turn into a moan. I don’t want to come here, be miserable and send any readers running for the hills. Today overall has not been a bad day at all but it is currently 8.30pm here and I’m at a loose end. There are so many things I could/should be doing but really, the emotion I am experiencing right now is boredom and that is drawing me towards inertia. I have started a new sock so I am going to basically make myself do that just now, that way I am at least doing something productive.

I wish I knew where this feeling came from. There is nothing I want to watch on television but I don’t have the motivation to feel content doing ANYTHING. Argh! That is not how this is meant to go.

This morning I got up and pampered myself a little. I did all the beauty things I said I’d do (except for the body brushing because I was already in the shower by the time I remembered), my hair was sitting nice, I picked out an outfit I liked (an achievement with my current wardrobe) and for the first time this year (and in a couple of weeks at least) I put on make-up. The effect was not lost. I got compliments and felt almost confident.

My day mostly flew by, doing a batch cook of pasta for lunches during the week, putting in washing (that is currently drying) and duking about. It was just over hour ago that this “loose end” started. I had plans for this time – it is a free to list weekend on eBay UK this weekend so I thought I could find a few items to list, but I think I’ll do that tomorrow now.

I’ve ordered motivation for tomorrow. I hope it arrives on time.

Sorry for the whinge, normal service shall resume shortly.

  1. Sometimes you just need a day where you can procrastinate a little. Although it sounds like you still got a lot done. I’ve had days where I have done way less.

  2. Hey KT.
    You need to give yourself a break. What you are trying to undertake is a massive task, and I applaud you for it, but sometimes a couple of hours of doing nothing are needed to let the brain and body to recover from the new processes you are putting it through.
    So you had a couple of hours where you couldn’t be bothered – but look at what else you achieved in the day.
    You are doing really well, and that is what you need to focus on.
    Get up tomorrow and start again, you will win out.

    Our greatest glory in not in never falling, but in getting up each time we do.
    It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop.
