Do you remember when Garfield was all the rage in the 80's? Okay, I'm completely dating myself here but I remember when one of his signature phrases was, "I hate Mondays". Now, I don't always hate Mondays but as we ever so slowly get back into the routine of the day in, day out, I'll admit it's a struggle. Getting back into the swing is a process, a journey, right? I'm going with that, it helps me adjust back to it all. The routine, the homework, the lack of time and the LACK OF SLEEP!
Every night I'm telling myself I need to go to bed earlier but there's always something that prevents this from happening. Good show, good conversation or getting sucked into one social media outlet or another. The thing is, it's all a choice I make. If I choose to stay up, then I'll pay the price in the morning. So there really is nobody to blame but myself! So with that, and another morning where I don't have a blog post ready to go, I want to apologize that I'm still getting my feet back under myself. I have good intentions but I need to take ownership and responsibility. The choices we make are our own!
So with that, I'm choosing to go to bed earlier, starting tonight and the hope is that the days will be more productive when I'm less exhausted. Simple equation, right? It's healthier for my mind and body too.
I hope your Monday is a little less like a MONDAY today my friends! That being said, I'm totally still feeling you today Garfield!
On a side note, these flowers were purchased the week before Christmas at Trader Joes and they FINALLY bloomed! These definitely make my days brighter!
