Drafting my intro’s is what I do subconsciously lying in bed every Monday morning. You already know that. Well… this morning is no different. Finishing my morning routine not even 30 minutes after I sat up made that process hurried this morning.
First, I want to expand a bit on this morning’s Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) then I’ll dive into and share what has me excited to start the work week.
STOP BEING A BABY!!!
^ That statement implies “being over-sensitive” takes away from what you’re using to get ahead. I can personally attest to that. Shoot, tearing up over spilled milk (or in my case, spilled Spark) needs to stop. Right now!
This morning, after I put my slippers on, I proceeded to tear open a sleeve of Spark and move to mixing it in the empty glass on my nightstand. That could have gone better to be honest with you. As impressed as I was discovering I can now hold the glass between my legs while mixing it, maybe I got too confident for a second. Halfway through pouring the water into the glass, the glass fell to the floor. I’d say half of the half a bottle of water seeped into the carpet. It will get cleaned better later. Get over it.
Anyways, very logically I’ll add, I hit the switch on the coffee and continued walking to the fridge. The half a gallon of milk was behind a few things. While grabbing that of course, I pushed the tub of chicken in there to the edge of the shelf. It fell of course. I was able to reach it while bending my knees luckily though. After walking to my chair, I poured my own coffee again today so I’m not complaining at all.
I dressed myself somewhere in there too so that’s HUGE!
Now, talk about exciting… Yesterday afternoon I reached out to the coach of the local softball team THAT PRACTICES RIGHT BEHIND MY HOUSE! Spending some time outside Saturday, I got the chance to meet and share my goals with a few of the parents I met. That was very satisfying, if not mind-blowing!
I shared that I was excited to watch them develop and play this season. Before the end of the email I shared how I think I could add to their performance, presence on the field and overall output.
The PA Strikers’ (https://www.facebook.com/pastrikers16ublue/) mission statement is “to practice hard and play harder! I like that!
Before I went to bed last night I did do some research on how I could add to my abilities and technique/ output. I AM NOW OPEN TO HEARING IF ANYBODY HAS AN OLD BASEBALL TEE THEY AREN’T USING!
Figuring standing in my walker is how I’d step up to the plate if I were on the team, I looked up exercises and drills that I could handle standing in a stationary position. The title “One Handed Drill for Improved Bat Swing” caught my eye!
Find that at (http://www.stack.com/a/one-handed-hitting-drill-for-improve-bat-swing). Thinking more about it, I think attaching a string to a baseball and hanging it from the overhead support beam holding up my carport would be smarter. That would eliminate having to fetch the ball each time I hit it.
