Whence does my energy come?

National Blog Posting Month – January 2013 – Energy

Prompt – From where do you draw your energy?

Or perhaps “Whence do you draw such energy?”

So where does it come from, all this jumpy-aroundedness? Exercise helps. Eating well. And doing what I like.

It seems though, that I mostly only have energy when the Sun is up. Apparently, I’m solar powered. In the winter, I can’t get anything finished, because my day is seemingly only eight hours long. But in the summer, I whiz-bang through so much stuff I astound myself.

There have been times in my life when I’ve put up full-spectrum lights so that I can work well into the evenings. This is how I survived my graduate school days. I’m beginning to think I need to do that again. My to-do list for these next two weeks is horrifying and I don’t know how I’ll get anything done without being able to work after my son’s bed time.

Energy is such a fleeting substance. Though I know I’m operating at a low-energy status right now because it is winter and cold, were it not for exercise and being employed at something I enjoy, I know I would be complete toast. So I’ll slog through the next couple of months, waiting for the days to extend in length and for my energy to return.
