Why Did You Get Out of Bed Today? Knowing Your Purpose Fuels You.

Why Did You Get Out of Bed Today? Knowing Your Purpose Fuels You.

It’s a valid question. There must be some reason, something that drove you to rise from the snuggly warm sheets, in the darkness, while the dog snored with content on his own bed at the foot of yours. 


Why did you get out of bed today?

Is it, “Cuz I have to. I have to go make money, pay rent, fill the fridge, and make my friggin’ MasterCard payment on time,”? If so, this will not sustain your motivation. Eventually, no matter how big the paycheck is, you will tire and lose your steam. The pressure of providing wears on all of us.

Money is necessary, wonderful even, and is a good driving force in pulling ourselves from the morning’s horizontal into the day’s vertical.

I am 12# fatter from when I left my 9-5 job. It’s one of the costs associated with leaving an active job for creating a business. 

About a month ago, I finally had it. I became determined to get back into my workout routine and stop the madness. Just this week, as May-grey/June-gloom left Orange County we had our first break of 70 degrees, I was quite nervous as I went to the dreaded ‘shorts’ drawer. (I hate the first weeks of wearing shorts, I am self-conscious and feel like a pasty white stuffed sausage.) I held my breath as I pulled shorts up, voíla…button-able. (Insert victory dance).
