Day 20: Laziness...Or Not?

Today's post is:
Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
So...when I saw this prompt I was like--goodness, I could talk about so much.  I could talk (again) about how I'm struggling with this stupid pain thing--is it something? is it nothing? is it all in my head? why I am so tired? I could talk (again) about how I am struggling with grading, keeping up at work, dealing with the daily stress that work throws at me, the feeling of lack of respect...etc. I could talk about how I so struggled with Bout of Books this past week!! I was going to finish The DaVinci Code.  As of writing this post, I am only 16% through (according to my Kindle). I watched so much TV this weekend...I could have read instead! But I dozed/rested my eyes quite a bit through all of that TV watching....which is why I didn't end up reading...but still!

So....I decided to talk about the overall theme that all of these issues have.  Laziness!! I just barely read Jenni's post for today too--and I feel like I could say yes, yes to everything that she was saying.  I am always kicking myself for not getting things done.  Like today, I was actually it a lot less pain but I was still tired today.  I decided when I got home that I wanted to try to catch up on the house cleaning since the pain was a lot less and because of it I haven't been up to doing a lot recently.  So because I was a bit tired, I decided to sit down and rest for a know get back up again in like a half an hour and get something done.  Nope!! I have been sitting here for about an hour and a I blog about it :P

How do you motivate yourself to get stuff done everyday?

Only 10 days left...and I'm loving having something to write every day!
Bout of Books
So sad its over because I didn't come close to finishing my goal...but I should be glad that I read-I can go through a week without reading for fun.  So that is a success!

Hi. We've barely met, but when you say the words "chronic pain" and "laziness" in the same post I must protest. I suffered chronic pain (long story, lots of it on my blog) and got hit with major depressive disorder as a lovely by-product. INERTIA. Not laziness. One cannot move. The steps to achieving a goal are insurmountable. "Getting things done" are impossible. Be nice to yourself! Get well. Then worry about the other crap.
I wish nothing but the best. I have good ears and an unfillable inbox. Let me know if you need someone to talk to.
I care.
