Me and Joe

The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results. (Anthony Robbins)

One question….. where can I get some of this “energy” stuff?

I have been running on empty for some time, here – painting, working, cooking, cleaning, nurturing, loving, fixing, paying, etc….. All the while, I am wondering how I will make it to the next task when my coffee cup is always half empty?  I seem to thrive on deadlines and falter on days when I have less on my plate – time to pour that full cup of Joe… This is when I sit down to drink in my tasty companion and the comfort of my furniture.  I put my fuzzy slippers on the coffee table and my fuzzy dog on my lap and just…falter – me and Joe.  Unfortunately, he only gives me just enough to keep me awake and think about all I must do to feel like I haven’t wasted another day.  Therefore, I must make myself a “honey-do” list daily to keep it all together.  Saturday’s list usually ends up on Sunday.  Sunday’s less important items end up on Monday.  Monday is usually when I wake up and get motivated enough to almost feel not-so scattered, fulfilling most of the tasks at hand by the end of the day.  Tuesday is, well, just Tuesday.  I work Wednesday, so I wouldn’t want to overexert myself the day before.  I am thinking I need to trade Joe in for Tony – but then again, Joe doesn’t mind my fuzzy slippers….

  1. Ah, I know Joe well…too well in fact! So it’s Tuesday and I am still waiting for the Monday motivation to kick in! I NEED to get a move on and just can’t-if we lived closer I would shuffle over in my un-fuzzy slippers to share Joe visit with you!
