There have been technical issues. There have been time issues. And there has been LIFE.
Do you feel that way? LIFE getting in the way of, well, life? It's funny, I can remember that as a child I could not wait for the responsibilities of adulthood, it seemed amazing and exotic. It's not that I mind them entirely now, it's simply that an approximate 24 hour span is not enough time for everything. What's a human to do?
Some will share memes and inspirational quotes about dropping those things that don't excite and inspire you. If that happens to be pesky things like paying bills and going to work and feeding your kids... I don't see that working well.
I don't particularly care for washing dishes, but I do like clean dishes.
Pick one task today that is not your favorite. Something that absolutely needs to be done; while you accomplish it or after, try to remember what you like about it or how it serves you. Is it a positive result or a a (surprise) positive experience?
I did not always get pleasure out of physical activity; I was overweight, embarrassed, and uncoordinated. It took a desire to be healthy and strong and not-overweight to get me to reenter the world of yoga and walking. Yup, I'm a walker. No grand running here. But I found that the act of walking gives me a peace of mind that I don't get from anything else. It started as a means to meet an end and became a daily requirement to my sanity. You won't find this in every necessary act but the opportunity is there.
Love long and prosper, Namaste.
