Happy Monday Friends! I think it goes without saying that we are all excited for spring, right?! I love the way my collection of bottles looks here on the mantel. 😍 •
On another note: do you ever feel like you're going in circles with a struggle? Like you do good for a bit but can't get to that place you'd like to get to? You've prayed about it and tried different things andnothing. •
For me it's my morning routine. That might seem trivial or silly to some, but it's honestly bothering me. I've always been a night owl and I'm not trying to change everything, but I do WANT to get up earlier to do devotions and have some alone time before work at 6:30 AM.
Some mornings it takes every.fiber.of.my.being to get myself out of bed. Even if I went to bed earlier and got solid hours of sleep. It could be partly habit, but darn it have I tried to create a new habit and it's not easy. I guess breaking a lifelong habit will take longer than a few months. 😄 They say "Put your alarm on the dresser instead of the night stand beside your bed." They say "jump out of bed." They say "Make a list in the evening so you're excited the next morning to wake up." They say "Have your spouse wake you up."
LISTEN: I could put my phone (alarm) OUTSIDE on the driveway in a pot, get up to turn it off and STILL jump right back into bed. It's like my brain will NOT function, no matter how well my intentions are the night before, no matter how much sleep I get. I don't even remember most of the things my husband tells me before he leaves for work. •
I know some of this is just how I've always been, but goodness, is there anyone - ANYONE - who severely struggles with this too? I would love to hear all your thoughts and insight. I know beating myself up about it is the last thing I should do, but some mornings it's hard not do when it's another strike gone down. Obviously attitude is a big part, and something I'm always working on. Is the morning routine overrated? Is it meant for everyone or not? Just some lingering questions for your Monday afternoon. 😆
