decisions, how to choose?

16 Feb

Have you ever stopped to consider how many decisions you make in one day? I start making decisions as soon as I open my eyes. I could probably make a flow chart to illustrate all the decisions and outcomes, but this would take too much time. Today I made 15 decisions in the first 10 minutes of my day. Sounds tiring!

I wonder how much brain power it takes to make one decision. I also wonder if I make too many decisions. Some days I think too much, weighing the options of everything I am about to do or say. When my mind works overtime, it has affects my body. This morning my head felt like I was walking through fog. I went through the motions, made decisions, but at the same time I felt like I wasn’t really present to my life. Do you ever feel like this in the morning?

Decisions carry such weight, yes or no, do or don’t, should or shouldn’t, stop or go, slow or fast, eat chocolate or an apple, drink some water or have more caffeine, laugh or cry, walk or run, right or wrong.

My challenge today:  a day without decisions. Is that possible? Ha!  Can’t wait to blog about it later.

motivation, where are you?

29 Jan

Today feels like one of those days. My to do list is full, kids are at school, no excuse to still be in my jams, but here I sit typing on my blog. I’ve checked my home email, Hotmail, Facebook, two job sites, read a few blogs and there are 5 other job sites to check. I highly doubt any jobs posted since last night at 10:00pm, but if I don’t look I will never know!

My chair is warm, my butt starting to go numb from sitting here for over an hour and I’d love a latte. If I had a bell I’d probably ring it for someone to get my vanilla latte remembering that I like it grande, solo, decaf, non-fat, half-sweet. Where is Mark (aka Taylor) my latte boy when I need him?!

Motivation is fleeting. Some days I have tons and other days it seems to be stuffed under a couch cushion, hiding in the closet or locked in the basement.  Perhaps if I call out I will find it running towards me along with my two dogs. Would be cool if it actually jumped up to give me a hug and a chin lick too!

Seriously though, I need to find it. There are things I’ve put off . I’m quite certain my Mother-in-law would appreciate her jams, new pants, socks, undies and sweater she left here at the beginning of January when she flew home. She’s either too polite to ask why we haven’t sent her things or it is possible she has forgotten.  I could of course leave this up to her son, however, she’d be picking them up this summer when she visits.

I’m going to do it! I will visualize myself crossing items off my to do list. I will sign off my blog, make my own latte and head upstairs to the say good morning to the guinea pigs. Of course none of that is on my list, but I’ll have a little caffeine kick as I watch Ginger & Cookie do their dance of joy.
