Morning Routine

I mentioned my morning routine before but I really want to acknowledge what a difference it makes for my motivation for the rest of the day, not to mention the extra amount of time I have. Let me just acknowledge what a geek I really am. My geekness developed early because I remember when I was in high school and before day planners were cool, I kept this secret little daily and weekly schedule of what I wanted to get done. (At least I didn't have a pencil holder in my pocket) I must of intuitively knew I had ADD and needed a schedule to keep me on track. I later found that having a house full of children was easier to handle when I had a morning routine; but then when the little darlings grew up, I thought I could abandon the schedule and just have leisure mornings with no deadlines. UGGGGH! The ADD took over, I fell apart, and it got ugly. Now after routine rehabilitation, I am back on my game and it feels good to be a geek again. Life is just so much better for me with a little structure and routine. I know that the suspense is just too much, but tomorrow I will share my routine.

I Love this post. I needed it! I am trying to re-invent the wheel here, and it's not working. I need my routine to do well and be happy... and with all the changes and chaos ( I am full of excuses) I have abandoned some fundamental aspects of that blessed routine that makes life ( at least for my personality and spirit) much more productive and enjoyable. I love you Tanya. I miss you and your wisdom and humor. Thank You for sharing!
