Good afternoon. I wish I could type "good morning" but, alas, I have gotten up late...again.
Motivation. That's what I need. Serendipitously that's the second half of the title of my Monday posts :D. I'm not really feeling that motivated this morning. I've been trying and trying to figure out how to remedy this, thinking and thinking about what I could type in this post. And the only thing that comes to mind is this:
YOU MUST DO THE THING YOU THINK YOU CANNOT DO ~Eleanor Roosevelt
Dear readers, I am in a quandary. I'm lost. Seriously. How does one let the hours slip past and have nothing to show for it? My days tend to pile up on one another and before I know it, it's NEXT Monday and I still haven't crossed off what needs to be done for THIS Monday.
School takes precedence (I have definite due dates for the work there and, let's face it, I've always been a bit Hermione when it comes to grades and school work).

Yul Brynner jokes aside, I'm going to have to take a page out of my own motivational mantras this morning. What do I think I cannot do? Get my days together and, as a result, my act!

But I KNOW this and therefore it is MY responsibility to make it right.
I will not be active in the blogsphere this week. I've got to remedy this situation before any more of this potentially fabulous year drifts by! No, I'm not out to work myself ragged. I'm not talking about being foolish. I am, however, talking about getting myself in order, not being lazy just because it's convenient and excelling in areas where I've allowed myself to just scrape by.
No more Mrs. Nice Guy! Look out week! Here I come!
Have an awesome, productive week everyone! I'll see you all back HERE on the 19th. Oh, and Happy St. Paddy's Day!
