So last night I found myself at the end of a very long day. It was 9:30, all the kids were finally asleep. I was still needing to finish dishes and laundry. I was wanting to search for some Christmas ideas. I was wishing I had worked out earlier in the day. My book was calling. There were piles to be picked up. I was feeling very overwhelmed. It dawned on me to try and be thankful for the few minutes I did have and not worry about how much more time I wish I had. So motivation struck me at 9:30pm! I worked out for 5 minutes. I finished the dishes, started some laundry (with 5 in the household laundry is never completely done), picked up a few piles, read some of my book, and caught up with the DVR. By 10:30pm I was falling asleep happy with how much I had accomplished. This was a case of mind over matter. There is still just as much to do today, but I will be thankful for the time I have to do it.
Talk to you soon,
