3 Weeks...

...since my last post.  obviously, discipline is not a character trait i possess very strongly. i have 3 blog drafts with about 1 sentence each in them, waiting to be written. i wish i was one of those people who could decide they were going to get up in the morning, work out, have quiet time, have a productive day at work, not make the accountant mad, cook dinner, pay the bills, do laundry, have a perfectly clean and straight house, and still have time with friends and my husband, and have perfectly trained dogs, and look cute.  i am not that girl.  i fail at the first item... i hit the snooze button approximately 8 times a day.  it's seriously lame.  i always think... today, i'm going to do better. i'm going to do a, b, c, x, y, and z, and it's going to be great. and then i don't. and then i'm upset.  i know i need to start smaller.  one thing at a time... one habit at a time.  does anyone have any ideas on how to start small, or how to instill discipline in yourself? i'm 25, people. it's past time.

(i feel like i've read this very blog recently from someone else. i know someone has to understand where i'm coming from!

I don't think anyone is "that girl". That's a lot to accomplish in one day! :) I'm not the best at keeping it all together and getting everything done in the day that I want to, so I don't have any great advice. But, I was talking to Scott about this same kind of thing one day, and how I need to find motivation. He said, "just do it. Whatever it is you want to do, just MAKE yourself do it, and the motivation will come". So that's what I've been trying to do. I make myself sew during nap time instead of taking a nap myself. And then I find that I am more motivated to continue, because I made myself get started.
So, that's my advice I guess. Choose one thing each day, and MAKE yourself do it :)
