Here I am to figure out my daily goals, and, hopefully, give you some inspiration or motivation.
I got up at 5 am again. It’s getting easier to get up early. I haven’t slept through my alarm in days, and I used to do it all the time. There’s a saying from the Spartan warriors:
Life is kind of like a war. If you’re not careful, life will knock you down and punch you out. When I did my stint in the hospital, one of my parents were able to stay in a nearby hotel so they could be with me every day. If my parents had both had to work, or they couldn’t afford to be with me that much, I would have had to do a lot of my recovery from my stroke on my own. I nearly died physically a few times. Thank goodness I didn’t have to nearly die alone. And that’s purely because my parents had put in the time to be able to do that. They aren’t wealthy, but they could do that.
Getting my life on a regimented schedule is training. I get up early and work every day. Then, by the time my son wakes up, I can spend the day with him. I don’t have to choose between him and work. And, soon enough, the work that I’m doing is going to begin bringing in enough regular funds that my husband will be able to spend less time at his job and can spend more time at home. The more I get up early and train, the less my heart will bleed from not being able to spend time with my family.
Anyway, goals: Yesterday, I went to visit my parents, so I had to schedule my day around that visit. But today, the only thing I really have to do is order an item from Walmart. So I have the time to be more flexible today. Plus, I can get a lot of work done. I did a lot yesterday, so I definitely can today. Let’s get it!
