Battling Inertia

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of motion or rest, or the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. The principle of inertia is one of the fundamental principles of classical physics which are used to describe the motion of matter and how it is affected by applied forces.

I like busy days. Not crazy-busy, but just satisfactorily busy enough to get me moving. On days which are less busy, it is easy to fall into the stay-at-home-trap where you feel sluggish, and chores seem never-ending and daunting. But a change in routine can usually shape me up. As a teacher, I used to crave a change in routine whether that meant a field trip, a guest speaker, Field Day. As a stay-at-home-mother, I know if someone comes over, the chores that I’ve been putting off get done in a matter of minutes, and my downstairs area can look semi-welcoming. Changes in routine trump inertia and sluggishess.

I’ve been trying to find and do things that creatively stimulate me, whether that means getting a good book from the  library (my latest read is Miracle On the Hudson – The Survivors on Flight 1949), photographing clients (love!), or even decluttering (usually blah, but if in the right mood, good!) I miss crocheting ~ I haven’t crocheted since Baby A’s arrival, but I’m sure when the time is right, I will. I also really want to work on writing children’s books, but I keep getting distracted by photography and blogging. Hoping things will fall into place at the right time when they’re all meant to.

Ramadan is coming up ~ Here’s to more productive days in the future!
