There are some little devils on my back trying to bring me down. Their names are Laziness, Self-Consciousness, and Wishy-Washy. Boo, you little devils! I'm going to shake them off and get back to dancing (figuratively, not literally, because my back can't handle that anymore).
I'm going to stop excusing myself from exercising just because I can't run (my former love and preferred method of movement). There are a million other ways to work out, and I need to find one that doesn't hurt my back and just start doing it. I'll feel better if I would just start moving.
I'm going to stop watching TV so much that I don't have time to read books. I love to read books! But I'm not. And the TV I'm watching? Old seasons of 90210 and One Tree Hill on Netflix. They're allllways going to be there, and I've seen them before. I'm going to switch them off and read books instead.
I'm going to stop staying up way past my bedtime every night and then regretting it all day the next day. What is that about? Go to bed at a decent hour, and you'll be able to get up at a decent hour too, and start your day with the sun. When I was a really little kid, my mom said I used to wake up so happy that she would come in my room to find me sitting up in bed smiling, just waiting for her. I'm going to make myself a morning person again. I love mornings!
I'm going to stop feeling overwhelmed by the task of making my shop successful, and just do what I need to do. I've got a million ideas and plenty of passion, I just feel daunted by all that it takes, especially when I also have a normal day job. I'm going to take a cue from Nike, and just do it.
I'm going to stop not following through on what I say I'm going to do.
I'm going to get back to being in the Word (my Bible study girls have been on vacation, and that's been my excuse. No more!)
I'm going to make a to-do list that I know I can complete.
I'm going to make scrumptious meals and bake cookies for us.
I'm going to let myself relax on Sunday instead of trying to make it into another work day.
I'm going to get my crap back together!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
This is my weekend. I'm getting my life back in order. Thanks, Florence + the Machine, for providing the soundtrack.
