Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Yes, I Know What I Look Like. NO, I Don't Care.

At 7am this morning, the rain pouring down, this was my entire attitude. 

I know I started out yesterday a bit crazy, but I eventually got it together and went to town to take care of a few things. I actually got a lot accomplished!

Today, I decided it would be a leggings and big baggy sweatshirt kind of day. I had a lot to do, but didn't have to go anywhere. So I decided to slum it a bit. (I didn't even wash my hair!)

Well, here it is, almost 2pm, and I haven't crossed anything off my list! YES, I even made a list!!

So I decide to at least get a blog done. And as you can tell, I was not really motivated to write, but I just decided to get it done, and that would be one thing off the list. Not the best attitude going into it. 

This is one of many days I have had like this lately. Sorry, but I have to ask...."What is wrong with me?" 

I have had far too many days where nothing gets crossed off the list! I have several of those days where there is not even a list!!

The sun did come out, and it is a beautiful day! But here I am wandering the internet, snacking on stuff, passing that laundry that has to be folded several times (I mean that is an EASY thing to cross off the list and I can't even find the motivation to do THAT!).

It is well past time to get off my duff here and get something done. HOW? Just do it, I guess. Sometimes that is all we can do. Sometimes that is all we need to do. And then the rest comes naturally.

in my bathrobe,
at 7am yesterday.
I managed to find motivation yesterday, a Monday, at 7am! I can sure accomplish something now, even if it is 2pm. 

I am off to cross stuff off my list!!!

(still, getting properly dressed is not on the list.) 

I know there are 'list people' out there, but what happens when you don't get to anything on your list? How do you find the motivation to start?

    1. some days I do, others I don't. I REALLY need to get back running though, because then I would at least feel better when I don't care what I look like....lol

  2. Oiy, been trying to comment on this all day. I'm not sure I have a good answer... if I'm not motivated and it's not critical - I don't do it. :P I get a lot more done when I'm motivated than when I force myself to do stuff and I'm not...

    1. It is hard to force yourself, that is for sure. But sometimes that is just what I need to get the ball rolling.
      {funny that you weren't really motivated to comment. ;) }
