I frequently fall into the rut of thinking that since my morning was crappy the whole day is lost. Every time I admit that to someone they remind me that it is always a good time to turn the day around; even if it is 7:00 in the evening. There is always time to make a good choice, to do something positive, to change the trajectory of the day. I forget this lesson time and again, and I usually need to be reminded.
This morning however, I remembered the lesson myself. I stayed up WAY too late last night, like until 2:30am, and as a result slept in (like I purposefully turned off my alarm when I crawled into bed). I woke up and by the time I got out of bed it was around 9:45am. Then instead of throwing on some clothes and getting to my goal for the day (cleaning up my living room and my work station) I laid on the couch and continued my binge watching of Grey's Anatomy. I think I watched two episodes and then I said to myself, "Stop this! It is still early in the day. Get off the couch and start straightening up. There isn't that much to do and you will feel so good once you've done it!!!! So I've just spent the past hour and a half straightening up, going through my gazillion nail polishes and deciding which I actually use and which I need to get rid of. I planned the next week out in my Erin Condren Life Planner (click here for $10.00 off your first purchase), and put away a purse for another season.
Now I am not done. No sirree! I have some garbage to take out to the recycling bin and I still have my work station to straighten up. And come to think of it, I want to utilize the filing drawer I just built to store my files. I am going to get serious and color code everything!!!
