Today I planned to write about a pen name or not to use a pen name. I will probably work on that one tomorrow.
I changed the post topic because of some changes I’m trying to make in my life, and failing miserably.
What is Insanity?
Doing the same thing and expecting different results. It seems that is all I have done for the last 6 years.
Not totally…But at the same time, I’m not getting my goals anywhere near complete. For the last 6 years, I have worked sporadically on trying to become a day person. After working nights for years, and even as a child I was a night person.
You need to change what you’re doing if it’s not working. Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting change.
The Insane Part
I keep thinking if I just drag myself out of bed, no matter what time I get to sleep, eventually, my body will adjust. Ya, not so much.
Mind you this has been going on for almost 6 years. So I have decided something has got to change. I have a bad habit of reading in bed, have for years. One thing I plan to change is I won’t bring the tablet into the bedroom. Since my hubby is trying to sleep I can’t read a paper book.
Another thing is I plan to go to bed at the same time as he does, no matter what. By the way, he’s a huge part of why I am trying to do this. My husband has worked in construction since a teenager and gets up at 05:30 each morning.
The sleeping in is affecting my writing too. I want to write in the morning after he heads to work on one of our businesses before I need to head out to open our collectibles store.
I have been trying to get up at 05:30 every day for 6 years. I am doing this so I can get on the same schedule as my husband, and have time to write. So the change is twofold and needed for me to fulfill my dreams.
But I keep trying the same things, just getting up early no matter what time I go to bed. Time for a change.
Not sure if anyone is interested in this or not, but I will update as things progress.
Let me know in the comments if you have a problem like this and what you have tried to do to fix it.
