Actions speak louder than emoticons

There's this thing that we call "getting stuff done" and, as it turns out, it doesn't matter how you feel while you're getting whatever it is done. If you rake the lawn, and you're sad, the lawn still gets raked. If you go to a dinner party and have lively conversation with friends and family while you've got a headache, you still have lively conversation with friends and family. Pretty cool.

Also, if you've got a ton of stuff to do and you're a bit nauseated so you sit around and think about how nauseated you're gonna love this.... you sit around. It's true.

I recently realized that if i feel like i need a cup of coffee, sometimes i can think to myself "look, you can do a bunch of stuff in the next half hour, regardless of how sluggish you feel" sometimes i can get a bunch of stuff done. Sometimes i can't though. I'm learning what the difference between those is.

Well, i feel woefully unprepared to organize work for tomorrow and get up on time and have personal prayer before morning prayer. But that's no reason it can't be done. It's go time.
