I disappointed myself yesterday. I got out of bed around 2pm and by 5:40pm I was back in bed, sleeping, again. I slept until 8:30pm. 8:30 PM. I literally wasted my entire day. I don’t even really remember what I did during that time when I was awake. I also recognize that I had an opportunity to use skills to keep myself awake and out of bed for the day and I DID NOT use them! It’s frustrating that I keep doing this to myself.
I decided though, that instead of feeling defeated and giving up for the rest of the day, that I was going to do things for the rest of the day. I made dinner and ate food, so that was productive. Other than that I think I mainly just watched television and wrote in my journal. My mom and I (after she got home) watch part of the movie “The Giver,” which is really good, by the way. We only got through half of it when I started to get antsy and realized that I needed to go to bed. So we shut off the movie and headed into my room, where she read part of “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” to me. It’s a book that I really wanted my mom to read and so we reading it “together,” by which I mean she’s reading it out loud to me while I’m lying in bed getting ready to go to sleep. Hahaha. It’s great! I love listening to the sound of her voice, reading to me, so much!
My evening was somewhat enjoyable, even though I wasted most of the day away. I know it would not have been enjoyable had I given up and decided to not do anything. So I persevered through the night and that is what is important. That is what I reinforced yesterday: Don’t Give Up!!!!
