Those three days of traveling up the coast were extremely satisfying because my progress was so easily quantifiable. Why can’t life be more like that? I want someone to come gamify my life; to follow me around and grant me points for things I’m doing right. Maybe, then I would be better at getting my shit together.
As of right now, I have been home for just under a week and am struggling to maintain my momentum. When you are remaining geographically stationary, progress is harder to gage. Especially so when you don’t have any sort of day-to-day schedule to stick to. I’m going to need to find something to structure my days around and fast. I can only bake cookies and rearrange my furniture so many times before I go stir crazy. I have been trying to get out of the house as much as possible so I don’t get sucked down a rabbit hole of reality television and Pinterest weddings. So far that is proving to be a pretty solid strategy. I refuse to let this summer pass me by. Let the plan making begin!
