Holding Accountability

I’ve been away from my home and normal routine for a while and need to get back into the swing of things.

I thrive in the morning. My routine in the morning is wonderful and I feel as though I’ve got it where I want it to be.

So, it can be hard diverging away from those building blocks of my morning routine.

Going away for vacation and just having SO much going on in the past few weeks has really taken me away from those basics.

Wake up with my alarm, take a cold shower, get ready for work.

As much as I would have liked to spend some time writing and reading while I was on vacation it seemed unattainable.

I was awake with Sloane taking care of her every morning. And spending any down time with family.

If I had to do it again, I would absolutely go about it the same way. Cherishing those moments with our loved ones and family. I cannot rationalize going through those motions of routine at the expense of spending time with family.

Would I have liked to get some writing done? Yes.

Would I rather write than spend time with them? No.

Here I am. Back at my desk writing and tapping away on my keyboard.

Part of me would like to be in bed. Still sleeping and resting. But I need to write. I need to feel the discomfort of my cold shower.

The routine needs to be built back. I have to hold myself accountable to my goals.

Sure my writings lacking fluidity and voice, but it is coming back to me. Thought by thought, line by line.

It’s good to be back. See you tomorrow.
