Who Stole My Motivation?!

Oh, how I wish there was a special pill I could take that would motivate me! I sat around today thinking about everything in my home that needed to be cleaned out, or organized, and all those “projects” I have been talking about doing, since we purchased our home. I have a tendency to start things and never finish. For example, we redid the kitchen counters and replaced the sink last month. We even bought new tile for the floor but would you believe all the tile is still sitting in my husbands truck.

A few months earlier I had painted the bathroom interiors, hung curtains and planned on the refinishing the cabinets. Have the cabinets been refinished? Nope! Every room I walk in just seems to be an unfinished mess. I have all these ideas and actually have even bought all the materials to complete most of the improvement projects, yet I can’t find ( or won’t make) the time to actually get moving and do it!

Has anyone been following me long enough to remember the Heated Towel Rails I got? Do you know that I actually tripped over it this morning because I still haven't mounted it to my wall…sigh.

I used to be so motivated, I have no idea what happened. I just don’t have the time or energy anymore. I lay in bed every night and swear tomorrow is the day I’m going to at least tackle one thing, even if it’s just a small thing. Then I get up and think of all the other things I must do for the day and once again put it off to the following day. It’s an endless cycle and now it has all piled up. Ugh, I guess I just needed to complain for a moment.

How do you get motivated? Would you happen to know if there really is a magic pill, lol?

It wasn't me that stole your motivation because I don't have any either.

I get motivated with deadlines. Without them, I'm toast. I certainly didn't steal it, but would love for you to share if you find it!

One thing at a time. You will feel really good if you can just do that. Speaking from experience. I call it (losing my mojo)and mine has been lost for years!

Don't remember the Heated Towel Rack, but my motivation has skipped out on me too. I have good intentions but don't seem to get to far with them. Good luck on all your chores, to me it's chores.

Well, as you can see you are not alone, in fact it would seem we are all in good company. I've been telling myself that with the return of Spring our motivation too will rise - or maybe we should make an Easter Resolution, that we will resurrect our motivation a week from a today (4/1) - no exception and no excuses!

One thing I do know is we have to do whatever it take to get moving, because motion creates it's own momentum to keep on keeping on...

And also to remember that there is no such thing as standing still: by not moving we give ourselves the impetus to GO BACKWARDS!

Here's wishing us all success!

I feel like you read my mind and put it all down! I have the same problem. And now it is to the point that I think that I am just over-tired and overwhelmed with all that I want / need to do. So I am making a list and I am going to try my best to accomplish at least one thing every day!
