During our vid chat this afternoon I was complaining to my husband about all the things still going wrong with my attempt to switch from night owl to early bird. He listened for a bit then had some observations of his own:
- That I, as usual, seem to have an image of success that approaches perfection and when I don't see it realized all I can see is what went wrong and not what has gone right.
- That I, as usual, am self-sabotaging by not addressing issues that I've identified as things under my control that would contribute to the success.
He went on to list some of those things in the first category and I filled in the ones in the second. I won't list any of them here as one in the latter is getting posted earlier in the day and that's what I'm trying to do now and it is second to last on that list which I've just spent the last three hours implementing.
I've got one more major one to do and I established with him this afternoon that I will start making our 8pm good night phone call my reward for having nothing left to do but go to bed. Otherwise I have to text with my good night and confession.
