So I've been making my Mighty List recently. It is long. Excitingly, dauntingly long - there is a LOT I want to do (so I really need to start getting on with it).
To that end I hauled myself out of bed an hour early this morning in a bid to buy myself a bit of time to do stuff for me - Get fit, Draw, Live intentionally, Start a business... All these things need time. Chipping away at the head-fogging Stuff - tidying and sorting, filing bags of correspondence (I know, I know - I had a big pile on my desk in the old house, now in a bag by my desk. I am not proud), archiving and backing up a gazillion photos, creating blurb year books for 2012 and starting the 2013 one, a pile of nagging household and personal admin chores... so much stuff just floating around my head and my space and gumming me up so I can't function properly but sit here instead, like a rabbit in really muddy headlights. And maybe have another look at Pinterest or Facebook, both of which are well known tools to boost morale and productivity... Ahem.
Anyway, this morning I actually managed to get up rather than just switching off the alarm again. Win! I plodded blearily upstairs, did two thirds of my home bootcamp workout (I didn't think the boys sleeping below would appreciate mountain climbers thudding about their heads so they will be a fun mid-morning break), then looked at the piles on and around my desk... and went to make a cup of tea.
I fully intended to draw. Or maybe sort through my Flickr feed to find pictures to illustrate my goals over on the Go Mighty site. But it turns out, today at least, my brain is just not in that 'creative' groove at the crack of dawn (blushing pinkly over the rooftops and sea out of my office window. A definite boon to an early start).
So I'm writing this instead. Because I keep promising myself that I will be better at blogging... and then not doing anything about it.
So that's a sort of progress. Right?
