Could you pass the motivation please?

How do I motivate myself ?

I have NO idea. One of the many things I lack is motivating myself to do something I don't want to, like cleaning for example. I know how to clean but would rather do about a million other things.
I can make the house look presentable in half an our when there are people coming over, but I can't invite guests to our house every evening, we would all be tired of that after a while.

I have tried pretending there is going to be company but that never works either. I do love the feeling of a clean home and the satisfaction of accomplishing a lot in a day, its just tough to get going.

So what do I do? Work harder is the only answer I can come up with. Maybe I should get some good energetic music ( flight of the bumble bee anyone?) maybe that would work.
And just doing it. It seems that seems to be the answer to a lot of things, just do it and it will get better and become a habit and maybe even enjoyable.

Thursday, August 5, 2010 what?

I have reached a point in my life where my planning has come to an end. That is to say, all my life I had planned for certain events to come to pass and they have. Now I am kind of at a loss as to what course I should take. Thus the name of the blog.

As a child I looked forward to certain milestones in my life, getting Baptized, going into Young Womens ( in my Church at twelve children leave primary and go into the youth program), being 16 and starting to date, graduating high school, going to college, getting married, doing the poor student/newly wed thing, having a few kids. And now my husband has just gotten a job and I feel like I'm not quite sure what I should be doing.

Obviously I am busy being a Mom and trying to keep up with the house work, make good meals, get my calling at church done etc. But what else? How do I go about planning for my family and myself?

I hope that through this blog I can learn about myself and what I should be planning for and looking forward to over the next few years and beyond!
