Today will be a test
Today is going to be a test, I can already feel it. It will be a test of my resolve, and stick-to-itiveness. For good reason, I was up late the past two nights and got little sleep. Rather than take it easy, or go to bed early, I must push on today. Typically, this has been a part of (or start to) a pattern of a downward spiral.
When tired, I have often made decisions that are lazy, rather than productive; I will consume what is easy, rather than what is good. I will consider it a 'day-off' exercise, instead of working out. I will push off my wants, instead of going after them.
Today, that pattern changes. Today will be a test of this. Today I have a part of a project I must finish; I also have to get a run in, or my entire schedule is off. I have goals. Today will be a test of them. Today, I break the old pattern and make a step in a new direction.
