The Daily Post’s Writing prompt of the day.
And another lazy day passes. With a stretch and a sip of tepid water, waking with the sun this morning I was at odds with myself yet again. A drowsy mind that just wants to waste hours on my phone, than do something productive like writing, preparing healthy meals, or exercise. Not that I’d describe it as a permanent state of war within myself, it’s more like an insidious disconnection.
What a conundrum to be in … I have to have a giant will to be productive. I have to fight myself to read. I have to fight myself to play video games. And these are things I like to do.
For the moment, the solution I can see is becoming connected with what life I want to be living. It must be a constant reminder for me unti a habit forms. As living in the now, or moment, has a lot of wisdom but it can also distract from strategy that forms my future.
Being connected starts internally. This yields decisiveness. And without that, nothing, good or ill, ever goes forward.
