Getting Your MOJO Back


I’ll admit that I’ve been stuck in a rut for the past few weeks. I’m very goal oriented and when I’m just a little off, I get caught in a whirlwind and lose focus on what it is that I want to get out of my daily routine.

Obstacles come in various forms and for me all it takes is a little nudge in the wrong direction and I end up all over the place. It can be something as simple as an accusation or as complex as a problem at work but anything out of the norm will set me back a little.

Yesterday was the first sign of getting my MOJO back. I went hard in the gym, I had a wonderful conversation with my daughter and I got lots of sleep. I literally slept from 3:30 pm to 7:45 pm and went back to sleep at 9:15 pm and slept til 5:00 am. It was wonderful. I woke up today with a purpose and I feel great. I killed my 5 am workout and was productive in my opening hours at work.

Hopefully this is the beginning of a great run by me. I struggle mightily when I lose something that is dear to me or I get caught in a pinch for time. Normalcy is important but sometimes you have to let go of something to get something and for me I can already tell I’m going to have to let go of things that aren’t allowing me to flourish.

I’m excited about my possibilities now and hopefully I continue to trend upwards because a happy me is always a joy to be around.

    Doesn’t it feel good when you are well rested? I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night, but when you do get a lot of sleep your are on point. I work out tonight so that will keep me up a little bit.

      It makes a world of difference. Rest is underappreciated. Night workouts are good too. I wish I was more of a night person

        It was definitely very insightful. Such a broad mix of opinions and all points are pretty valid
