Some days it can be hard to find the motivation to get started. Some days I hit the ground running. Today is the latter. I woke up an hour before the alarm due to a nightmare and was awake enough that going back to sleep didn’t make sense, so I got up and started the coffee.
My first order of business after the bathroom and getting the coffee started, is always to hit the email accounts. I have several accounts because I like to compartmentalize my life to a degree. I generally ignore the stuff in my “junk” mail address, the one that I use when I have to sign up for something online, shopping stuff, etc, and just mark that as read. The others I skim through the inbox, look at the ones that look important, answer what I can and then I move on.
Generally, while I have my morning coffee, I peruse Facebook and other social media, play a couple rounds of some silly game, or write. During the week, it is usually the first two. On the weekends it’s writing.
By the time my coffee was ready, I had already emailed several people back, answered some work emails and reviewed a few work tickets. I was out to the work computer by 7am, taking my breakfast and second-coffee with me.
It’s a good start to a Friday. I hope all of you are having a good week (as much as any of us can anyway), and that your weekend is filled with love and kindness, Readers.
