The struggle to get started.

Saturday March 31, 2018

So, I should clean my teeth, wash my face and measure my mood – except I know what it will be – flat-lining. It always is first thing in the morning.

But going through the motions has provided me with some insight. My mood is low whatever time I surface. Taking longer to break through the fatigue doesn't help, being 'kind' to myself and 'treating' myself to an extra five minutes, half hour or two hours of 'rest' does not bring any extra energy or drive.

So now I think the thing to do is to have something to get started on, to grit my teeth and take the plunge - and leave the mood for later. It's always so much better, cleaning my teeth, washing my face and measuring my mood looking back on what I have started – however small.
