So, this is what happens. I wake up in the morning and decide that today is going to be the day. I am going to share a thought that has gone through my head, a word of wisdom that someone shared with me, an experience that rocked my world, or a piece of insight I have gleaned from somewhere. Yup, today is going to be that day.
Then, the dog starts crying cause she wants to get out of her kennel and she knows I am awake so now it is urgent.
I take the dog out and breathe in the gorgeous sunrise over the river. I notice the bunnies playing statue and tempting fate by not running away as my fur baby and I approach. The morning is so calm and peaceful and my mind wanders to stories I could regale you with or motivation I could share. Then, I smell the poop and get back to reality.
On my way inside I am mentally going through what I have in store for the day, deciding what I should wear, ignoring my rumbly tummy, and mixing up some wet food for the pup. I think I should take pictures of what my morning looks like to add to my growing IG album. I tell myself to share that recipe of the thing I made for lunch that is so tasty and fits my meal plan perfectly. I challenge myself to get in more steps today and be more productive both at work at at home. Then, my "you're late" Battlestar Galactica themed alarm starts going off with a vengeance and I realize I have to get to it.
Driving to work I contemplate road rage, commuting, working from home, car repairs, winter weather driving, roadkill, fast food restaurants, sci fi fandom, what my puppy does while I am gone all day, and why I haven't put on chapstick, yet. Surely, someone could relate to these thoughts and want to tune in for more as I blog about them. Right? I mean, right?
Once at work there is no time for blog thoughts and creative genius. I throw myself into what is on my plate, on my screen, on my calendar, and in my face. I give my all to my students and my staff and work diligently to make my boss look good in every possible way. When it is time to go home, the thoughts of blogging and posting and tweeting and such return.
Listening to audiobooks on the way home is supposed to inspire me and motivate me but sometimes my thoughts again turn to blogging. I should write down that phrase and blog about it. How? You're driving. I should share a story about how this book has affected me. When? I should, I could, . . . .
Yeah, people have more fur babies than me, human babies that I haven't yet been blessed with, lives in busy cities, farms that occupy them, and so much more and yet they can blog often and regularly. Well, kudos to them. As much as I want to share my world with people and provide a little ray of sunshine, a word of encouragement, a piece of advice, or a delicious recipe, I fall short. I will continue to remind myself that this is something that I want to do and hopefully have it find a place in my weekly routine. No promises. Let's just hope I can hit UPDATE on this one and get it out there first, shall we?
I am Christian Straightedge Christ follower, an Army Brat, an ex-milso, founder and CEO of FitnessAnyaMind, a sofa CEO, a nomad, a fur baby mom, and a mindset builder. I enjoy nature, reading, music, cooking, and taking care of those whom I love.
