U is for Unmotivated

Today I woke up unmotivated. I didn’t want to get out bed. I didn’t want to do my routines. I didn’t want to write this post or participate in the A-Z challenge anymore. I didn’t want to do anything.

But I’m a mom and my husband had to work and I had to take care of my kid. So I cut myself some slack, did a few things on my routine to get me going, and then took my kid outside while I tried to read. I’ve decided to work through my routines later this afternoon, after my radio show, and maybe a nap. And maybe after my husband gets home from work.

The thing is, that with routines written down, even if they aren’t yet habits, I can still know what I need to do to set things going in the right direction, no matter what time of day I start.
