Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to get up in the morning, and face the day. Especially if you are tired, or have to wake up at an unusual time to fulfill some obligation.
Suddenly the obligation you were more than accepting of when you made it seems like an unnecessary commitment; and in fact every little bit of the day is an annoyance. The weather, the television, all grate at your nerves that are frayed for absolutely no reason except that you are tired.
If one can push past this and actually get moving and do what needs to be done for the day, there is a certain sense of accomplishment and satisfaction in that, opposed to just blowing it off and staying in your squirrel hole all day, letting the outside world pass by.
It might not be ideal, but perceived as good or bad, the daily experiences that make up our lives are just that – daily. And it is amazing how the action of just slogging through will actually get you somewhat motivated.
