Some Days

There are good days, bad days, and “meh” days.

We have productive days and then we have days that are not.

Some days we are down, feeling unmotivated, and just want to snuggle with a soft blanket on the couch with your two orange tabby cats.


Today I want to be snuggling blankets and cats on my couch with my book in tow.  What brings this on is the fact that the weather has changed here in the desert.  It is rainy, gray and dark.  Adding to the mix, I am still working on getting over a sinus and respiratory tract infection.  I am finding myself to be tired and lacking inspiration.  It’s a challenge to do what needs to get done and I am easily distracted.


Within my distraction, I have spent time today identifying these items and working to address them in the best way that I know how.  I am making a plan of action, which includes a list, to help keep me on topic as well as on point today.  The reality is right now, I can’t go home.  I have work that needs to be finished.  After this here lunch break of mine, I will need to get back into the swing of things and start accomplishing some goals.


As I work to complete the goals that have been set forth, I feel like I am hiking the summit of a mountain.  My heart is labored, and I feel a little weak and lightheaded.  But I am determined that I am going to make it to the top.  I will accomplish this goal that is set before me.  And this is the exact thing in my actual life.  I will work through the exhaustion, the stuffy nose, and the distraction and will achieve that sense of accomplishment.


Some days are hard.  Some days I want to give up and run home and hide.  Some days I can do this, but some days I cannot.  Some days I am a ball of positive energy.  Some days I want to say the hell with it.

Today, I am going to muscle through the fatigue, I am going to power through the sludge and make it a great day.  I am going to embrace my inner happiness and put a genuine smile on my face.

Some days, a day is a day.
