{For Laura - LOL}

Hello Hi everyone!

I couldn't for the life of me decide what to post on this morning. I finally decided to come clean and post on my lack of motivation today. There. The truth is out. AHAH It feels good to say it! Does it happen to you, I wonder??

Yesterday I was motivated. Got lots of stuff done with my jewelry/projects/house/dogs, etc. Today? I'm just not feeling it. What the heck happened? Where did my motivation go? Is it lost? Is it hiding? And what the HECK am I to do about it?? How do I maintain that desire to STAY motivated?

Motivation and I have a love/hate relationship. I enjoy being motivated...most of the time. But when its lost, hiding, whatever...I seem to shut down. Back away. And then the inevitable sets in - a day of laziness. Don't get me wrong...sometimes taking a break from everything is a good way to get a new perspective on things. Take a step back. Put on your "thinking cap". Decide on the next best course of action.

But on the weekends, I usually WANT to be motivated. I mean, during the work week (because of my job/boss) I generally get home and am mentally exhausted. And I usually view the weekends as a time of renewal. Do things that have been neglected during the week; do things that make me feel better about being so detached during the week.

Today...or should I say at the present moment, I am just not feeling it. I have no motivation right now, and am feeling a tad guilty about it - that in itself is hard for me to admit. Soooo, all this rambling is leading me to this one simple question, that I will throw out into blogland in hopes that I'm not alone in my feelings:

How do YOU stay motivated?

I shall be anxiously awaiting your answers.
Love & peace y'all,

This perfectly describes my day yesterday, BLAH! I'm not sure we can stay motivated all the time, not that we don't have a million things to do, but I think we'd run out of steam, so maybe our motivation or the lack there of is just a security measure. Doesn't help the guilt but oh well. :D

Thanks Sharon. You're right of course. I think its important to recharge ones batteries. The key is not to stay in that stage. It can get really comfortable after a while. LOL

Hey Angie, when I feel that way, I usually go take a walk or ride my horse, check out the scenery, clear my head, breath in some fresh air... works every time for me. But I have to agree, one day of relaxing and doing nothing is sometimes good! We all need that. :)

Thanks Bridget! I agree...we all need a break from the routine every once in a while. It helped a lot to do nothing yesterday. Boy, what I wouldn't give to ride a horse when times like that come knockin. You're very lucky!! Have a great day :o)
