Yesterday I had a to-do list about as long as a giraffe is tall. The list seemed to grow, and grow exponentially as the day went on. As the list got longer, my motivation shrunk proportionately. I don’t know if it was the fact that it was the end of the first week back to work after a nice, long vacation, the fact that I was only a few days out from becoming well again after being sick, or something else, but I just did not have the energy to get anything done. Instead, I did nothing, and really felt worried about how today would go.
As an act of self-love today, I am going to forget yesterday’s mishap and start fresh. I am not going to work twice as hard to “make up” for a lousy day, or try to guilt myself into over-doing it today. I will take today as today, a brand new day, and I will get done whatever I can, guilt-free.
