Sometimes You Need To Take Life By The Horns

I admit it, this week I’m in a funk. I don’t know how else to describe it. I’m feeling lazy and I’m lacking the motivation I thought would be coursing through me on Spring Break. Here it is the end of the week, with only a few days left before we head back to school and I’m feeling very unaccomplished. There is so much I want and need to be doing this week – so today I decided to grab life by the horns.

Here’s how my morning went.

It didn’t matter if I wanted to relax on the couch, I needed to soak up some sunshine to get out of my funk, so I decided to sun our cloth diapers for the first time in months (yikes, I know)! I’m happy to report, that little bit of sunshine on my face helped do the trick.

Instead of sitting down and entering the world of Facebook or Twitter (HUGE time suckers), we got dressed and went for a long walk through our neighborhood and to the local playground. I took along my iPod to listen to the How They Blog Podcast Series (which is fantastic if you’re a blogger by the way, check out the link) and spent a wonderful 2 hours outside with my son. Much like your debt snowball, once you get motivated for the day, it’s a lot easier to maintain your motivation. Sure enough a quick lunch and then getting my son down for nap, lead to me doing some digging in the garden, taking a shower & now blogging here with you, my wonderful readers, while little man sleeps. What started as a morning where I felt lazy and unmotivated, has lead to one of the most productive days I’ve had this week. 🙂

Now it’s your turn. How will you take life by the horns today? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below!
