Staying Motivated

We have all experienced those days that we would just love to sit and just not think or move. Turn the TV on to some show that needs absolutely no brain cells and tune out the world. While this is OK once in a great while, it is not something that we should do daily. There is always something we should be doing or need to be doing.
Some days for me it can be a bit of a battle. So I find things that help me stay motivated.
For some it might be that they want to lose weight. So they find something that they can focus on. It may be a favorite pair of jeans that they have, that they may lay on their dresser to remind them they want to wear them again, or a shopping spree.
Some people may want to take a vacation, so they hang on the refrigerator pictures of the place or a list of what they want to do on the trip. This is to remind them to save their money up to take the trip.
For me I sometimes need to be motivated into my housework. I know terrible right! I am not saying all the time, just some of it. So I will record a show I want to watch and then not allow myself that 30 min break until I have completed the daily housework.
Sitting down to my computer and taking the steps necessary to work my home biz is something that I do have a lot of motivation for. The drive behind why I do this is huge. It is making that change for my family. Being able to pay off those bills, and debt. It is helping others do the same. Meeting new people, celebrating their success!
So whatever it is that you have to do today, or want to do, and you are dragging your feet. Think about what is going to motivate you. I guarantee that at the end of the day you will be proud of yourself, will have a accomplished a lot, and will be rewarded. And if your like me, chances are the list will have been long and you will be exhausted!!
So go on and get busy and good luck!!

Spring like weather!

It is so much nicer out today, 10:00am and already 50degrees out there. It sure makes staying inside hard. I can think of a ton of things that need done or I want to do. The yard needs a good cleaning, thanks to the dog who thinks that if it isn't in the yard it should be. He has brought in logs, sticks, tumble weeds. He has found some trash ( I think he secretly must clean the ditches along the road when we are asleep). I can not imagine where he finds all this stuff.
Then there is all the horses. Who in their right mind has so many to work with. They all need to be walked and messed with, a whole winter without anything, I have to wonder did they forget everything?
I would love to plant more flowers this year ( dog permitting, he dug up most of them last year). This means I need to get clever and probably add fencing of some type. It will take some planning.
I discovered Mulberry trees in the tree row behind our house a couple of years ago. I don't know if they had been inactive for all these years or what exactly was the deal, but one day walked out to the edge of the trees and right there was a small tree, set with berries. In a bigger inspection I had a big nice tree of them in the middle of the trees. So for the last two years, plan has been to clean out a nice path to get to the nice Mulberry tree. Before the dreaded snakes all come out!
Days like today make me want to get out and get things done.
Oh and our little family terror, that makes some jobs possible and others impossible is this big yellow member of the family.

Gotta Love Him!!
