02.18.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: I had a very late start of things today. Didn’t roll out of bed until 10 am. Not sure why I am sleeping in so late each morning now. I’ve been off of the Nyquil for two days now. So it’s really screwing up my schedule and well, if you know me, then you know how I hate being off schedule. I did manage to get all of my writing goals done for the day. I’ve scheduled two posts for the A2Z challenge for this blog so far. I’ve written two new poems for my chapbook, and I even took some me-time this evening to indulge in a little Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. I have yet to read emails though and since I am getting very sleepy, I may just check urgent emails and be done with it for the night.

What I learned today: I did some reflections for Calen’s challenge today and it dredged up some past horrors. But what I learned was that it is okay to reflect on the past because I no longer live in the past.

What I am most proud of today: I know this is beginning to sound like a broken record, but if you knew me and you knew how big of a procrastinator I once was, you would be proud of me too… I am sticking to my schedules and I am making progress towards my goals.

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

02.16.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: I woke up this morning after only four-ish hours of sleep last night. It’s been nearly a week since I’ve done that and it felt good to be back in my routine. I was able to do most of my writing projects early before the household stirred and it got noisy. I tackled my to-read list from the numerous challenges and bloghops that I belong to. I didn’t complete the list, but I did whittle away a huge chunk of it. I’ve yet to tackle the growing emails though. I am feeling tons better, not yet 100% but definitely better. My energy has returned.

What I learned today: If I am ever to complete the new poems I want to get written this year for a chapbook, then I must schedule the time for them. Yes, it has come down to that, because otherwise, I will just continue to procrastinate, dream, and do anything and everything besides write these poems. So I have scheduled two days a week for the remainder of the year to write them. Now I just need a theme.

What I am most proud of today: I am proud that I have taken the initiative to conquer my dream of a chapbook by the year’s end. No more excuses.
