Even When Tired

When I'm exhausted, I don't feel like writing, and I know I'm far from the only one who feels this way.

Yesterday, and today, has been horrible. I've been excruciatingly tired. Each and every part of me was, and is, so tired, (despite pumping myself full of caffeine all day today) that all I wanted to do when I got home from work was lay down and not move at all.

Yet, here I am, writing.

If I make a promise to myself to post on here each day - which contributes to me writing every day - I have to stick to it, no matter how I feel. Because, the thing is, when I don't write on a given day, it puts me in a funk. When I do write, even if it's only a few lines or a few tweaks/revisions here and there, I'm almost automatically put in a better mood. So, yeah, when I'm this tired, it's a struggle, but it pays off, little by little. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Thankfully it's (finally) the weekend!! I fully intend to sleep in tomorrow and the day after. I will get rid of these feelings of exhaustion - despite Daylight Savings Time and setting the clock back an hour - and I will keep writing, each and every day.

I really think there is something in the air this week. I have been completely and utterly exhausted as well to the point I am frantic about trying to do too much. I hope it goes away soon! For you and for me both!

constructive - have a great weekend too!

Andi - You're totally right about there being 'something in the air'! Despite my trek to Hot Doug's restaurant this morning, I plan on taking the rest of the weekend easy. I hope you get a chance to relax, too!

I can totally sympathize with you here! Goes along with my writer's block problem too! Thanks for visiting our site!
