Get Inspired

July 10, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I need to get inspired. The problem is, a word that rhymes with inspired is usually a better descriptor of me…tired!  I’m busy. I work a lot. I get home from work and cook dinner, eat dinner, make lunches, take a shower, and go to bed so my day can start over in less than 8 hours. I have so many ideas that shoot across my mind each day, but I don’t always have the time to bring life to them.

I’ve read that writers should write in the mornings. You should know, if you don’t already, that I’m NOT a morning person. I will convince myself in the mornings that there is no one else in the entire world awake, and therefore, I should not be awake either. Nevermind that hubs is already at work. I am very good at ignoring that fact. 🙂

So, write at night, you say. The thing is, I’m not really a night person either. I’m tired at night, and I want to sleep!

You may be assuming at this point that I fill my evenings with television, games, or reading, but if you are, you’d be wrong. I rarely watch t.v. I have one show that I’m keeping up with right now, and I have to record it just to see it every week. I’m not much of a gamer, and I do all of my reading during my 1 hour commute to and from work.

I’m really just. that. busy.

And tired.

So I’m reaching out to y’all (that’s southern for you guys) for inspiration.

What do you do to motivate yourself? What plans have you made or goals have you set to make sure you achieve your dreams? How do you get inspired?

You should know – just because it may be humorous to those of you who know me – I’m multitasking at the moment, and I may or may not be blogging in an apron. But it’s okay. I’m southern.


Busy Little Bee

April 17, 2011

Busy Little Bee – That is what I nicknamed myself this weekend. My whole family is coming to visit next weekend, so my free time this weekend consisted of cleaning my entire house (did I mention it resembles a construction zone?), doing my normal laundry, washing sheets for the guest room, buying an overabundance of groceries, and cleaning my entire house…oh, I may have mentioned that one already.

Tonight, I finally plan to relax, enjoy my temporarily clean house, and do as little as possible. Of course, that will make me an un-busy little bee (maybe even a lazy bee in fact), and I’m okay with that.

Cheers to a relaxing evening at home with the hubby! Happy Sunday!
