Everyday

love the book Everyday by David Leviathan where everything changes daily for the protagonist, except for his soul. 

But I'm much more Groundhog Day myselfSame situation everyday with minute changes within that only show themselves over time. 

Trying for productive, I take my meds


Have a healthy breakfast 


Caffeinate


Drink plenty of fluids


Closing the top there would have been smart. 

Moving on...review plan in GTD journal


AFTER checking the calendar (small mistake, use self-compassion)


Be accountable for daily goals 


Try something new


But no overachieving, bite-size chunks


(Ok, I promise to look at the book. Open it, even. But the real new thing I'm trying is to blog on my phone for the 1st time so I write less. Totally working).

Don't reinvent the wheel--accept help--


Seek to do better


But be grateful for what you have


Ignore the gaping maws of distraction 


And above all keep your sense of humor


(That's a character note for the story I'm rewriting. The brilliant idea I wrote there before I went to bed was "has to get something done/fixed/taken care of" in the scene. Like this isn't my everyday theme.)

But the Everyday v. Groundhog Day experience is pretty universal. Some people lead busy lives and need to keep themselves centered and consistent. Others lead more routine lives and need to find challenges to keep them evolving.  

I used to be the first, now I'm the second. 

Which are you? 

Love, Lisa
