I woke up just before 6.30 am and decided to do the day. I’m glad I got up because Homer dog got up not long after I did and he wanted to go out. I didn’t waste much time before jumping into French. It took me just over 40 minutes to get 200 xp points but I stopped a number of times for conversation.
Once hubby left for work, I dragged my heels a tad and didn’t really want to get out from under my very warm blanket to workout. Wifey encouraged me to get to it and I did. I put my playlist on (which I didn’t have on yesterday) and I powered through it. It almost feels as if the music gives me an energy that I don’t ordinarily have. The music just flows through me and makes my muscles do as they should. Weird, huh?
Next it was time for today’s drawing challenge topic; mushrooms. I thought this was going to be a wonderfully fun draw. I hit up Google for some inspiration and every picture I wanted to try drawing, was magic mushrooms. So I tried to make some magic happen and… face planted in the dirt. I just couldn’t make my hand do what my eyes were seeing but I present to you; mushrooms.
This was where I sorta tapped out of the day. I spent about five hours just zoned out on WoW. I’m not impressed with myself. I know that I have been pretty disciplined in a number of areas like working out, French and drawing, which I do almost daily. There are still areas that require a lot of attention and I’m ignoring them.
Maybe I need to set monthly goals of things that I should learn, practice or do. (5 minutes of sitting and staring later…) I think that it’s actually a really good idea and I will start next month. I’ll work out a realistic schedule for all the things I want to do and then stick to it. Wifey will be here then, so hopefully she can help keep me on track until my discipline kicks in.
If anyone out there is trying to wrestle discipline while getting your life together, I just want you to know; you got this. You’re stronger than you think. The road may seem long but you’re making the journey. That’s what counts.
