Once again the kids are up pretty early, but this morning I am not. In fact as they started whining and hassling each other while they set the table and had breakfast …. I stayed put.
In my pajamas.
Not yet ready to start my day.
Not ready to sort anything out.
Not ready to get grumpy.
And the thing is, I feel grumpy this morning, so it is completely in my kids best interests to not be in their space right now.
So what is going on here – why the lack of energy?
I’m thinking about the best ways for me to get energy for my personality. Be around people, action, variety, new ideas, dreams, contributing, completing a project……. hmmmmmmm.
None of that is on my radar today. I’m just starting some projects, but not in the completing faze, I haven’t made plans to be around people, I haven’t got up and done anything, and day-to-day my life at the moment doesn’t have much variety in it.
It’s no wonder I’m hanging in bed being grumpy.
This is the sort of example where knowing what can help REALLY does help. Inspiration, energy, and action is not happening while I wait for it – sometimes I wish that I was the type who could feel better after doing nothing for a while, but that’s just not me.
Kids have finished breakfast, morning jobs are starting … Energy is to be had by ‘contributing’ to the morning routine. Not a big boost, but something that’ll have me heading in the right direction. Putting on the TV news in the background will also help ….. By the time the kids go to school I’ll have to come up with some ways of getting a bigger energy boost so I’m not feeling flat and grumpy tomorrow morning.
