My faith, and on a more fickle level, money. bills to pay etc, and also as a high school teacher dealing with 'at risk' teens, it motivates me to get up, go to work and be there for them (my students have behavioural and emotional problems- ADHD, violence, drugs etc)
if i had it my way, id sleep my life away, which is a bad thing, i know- but so often its all i feel capable of. but my faith keeps me going, i believe God wont give me more than i can handle.
Hi Lee Ann-
I would be tired too if I cleaned houses. It is physically demanding, so on your day or days off your body is tired. It does not take me much to get tired.
I "try" to have a game plan every day. But if my body is telling me what I had planned for the day is not going to happen, I try to go with the flow and not do as much and not get down on myself for it. Like Sherrine said, I also know how I am going to feel if I do not get going or I will feel worse. So most days I do get a few things done and also get some walking in.
And once in awhile I give myself permission to get on the couch in my PJs too and not do anything!!
