When it comes right down to it, I'm simply a victim of physics. When Newton described his first law of motion, he was talking about me. "An object at rest tends to stay at rest..." That single principle describes one of my biggest struggles - overcoming inertia.
Today is definitely one of those days. I set my alarm for 6 a.m., fully intending to get up before Wendy so that I could get some things done before resuming my "Mama" duties. I know, I know, that my day goes a lot better if I can get a head start on my chores before Wendy wakes up...and yet...I turned the alarm off and snuggled back into my Blankie, and slept until Wendy called for me.
And now, it's almost 10 a.m., and I have accomplished exactly nothing. True, I fed Wendy - how hard is it to unwrap a couple of Nutri-grain bars? I also...no, wait, that's it. That's all I've done. My to-do list overflows with things I could and should get done today. And yet, I am like this polar bear:
I know I'm not alone in my struggle to get with it in the mornings. Do any of you have a good strategy? Any ideas for boosting my self-discipline, for getting me up and going and accomplishing things??
