So I started this post at about 9:00 PM on Sunday night... I try to prepare my posts on the weekend for the week... I wanted to get it ready for my readers... it's original title was "Motivation Monday" ...
And as I sat with a blank screen staring at me... I had nothing... my mind was blank.
I sighed and turned to Dubya and said, "I don't feel like posting..." 3
He laughed and said, "Don't you have some topics saved up?"
"Yeah," I replied, "but I'm just not motivated to write a post."
"Huh, weird." He said.
"I know I need to write a post, cause I haven't written one in a while and I wanted to write a motivational one for Monday, but I'm not motivated at this moment. I mean, not to say that I'm not motivated at all, I just got done running 6 miles...and I'm keeping up with everything... I'm just kind of coasting..."
"Coasting?" he asked.
"Yeah, like I'm not highly overly motivated, nor am I in a rut... I'm just kind of coasting along enjoying the stability. And it's a good place to be, I wanna stay there as long as I can. Everything's just right."
"Well, why don't you write about that."
Sometimes, you get in the place in life where everything is not too good or not too bad.
Everything's not awesome.
But everything's not awful.
It's just right.
Just like Goldilocks.
It's coasting. It's going through and maintaining a routine.
But what happens when the "just right" is gone? When I get tired of the norm?
It's different each time. Sometimes I deteriorate into my bad habits again and other times I change things up and dig deep for some motivation.
Regardless, I always end up finding an equilibrium...
Finding that just right.
Finding the inner-Goldilocks.
Have you ever been in a place like this? What do you do to stay in it? How do you get out of it?
Get Mean. Make a Decision. Choose Health!
