Just another moody monday

"Dear Monday - My mama don't like you and she likes everyone"

To do list - Written
Kitchen - Cleaned
Kids stuff ready? - All packed
Feeling relaxed? - Totally zen
I can do this - You can so do this
How am I feeling? - Pretty epic actually

Gives high five to self and heads to bed.

Next morning

Well that was a shit nights sleep - Do you call rolling and huffing sleep?
Is it morning already? - Unfortunately yes
I've actually got to get up now and do my bastard to do list - Writing a list is setting yourself up for failure, you know this.
I feel weird - Kinda edgy aren't you?
I can't do this - No choice love

Looks at to do list "7am - workout" - opts for coffee and "breakfast" biscuit instead.

This sets the tone for the rest of the list and off down the path of woe I go.

F**k you to-do list.

It felt good at the time of writing the list, as if, y'know this time I was actually going to do it. I was not going to procrastinate, I was going to stick to the schedule and blitz it. This Monday was supposed to be the Monday of all Monday's, the game changer, diet started, house tidy, the project I started 3 months ago to be finished.

What happened? I woke up and realised its just another moody Monday.

It is now 2 pm, I can not let this beat me and I have decided to adopt a new motto:

"Don't think, just do"

I had a trial run the other day and I have to say it is a good motto, only I have to actually remember the motto, but I am too busy procrastinating...

The occasions I did remember, I took it too far, for example I booked tickets for an event without checking:
1) When it was
2) How I was going to get there
3) Childcare options.

I didn't go to the event - but kudos for trying right?

So my motto is actually more like:

 "Think a little bit to make sure not going to make a complete tit of yourself, but that's all your having, then you actually have to get off your ass and do it without any form of whingeing (internal or external) OK?" 

But that's not as catchy, so I am going to stick with "Don't think, just do." I would go with "Just do it" but that ones taken I think.

So whilst I am feeling all pumped and writing a to do list I have to remember my morning mantra of "Don't think, just do" until my list is complete. Regardless of it being morning, regardless of my mood.



  1. I love your motto, its perfect! To do lists never work for me! lol
