Monday Motivation – Finding Time for Me Again

It’s Monday again and I am in desperate need of some motivation! The weather here is gloomy and I haven’t been at work since last Wednesday so I am feeling pretty out of it. To be honest I am kinda grouchy and negative, bordering on angry. I probably just need some food, or a nap.

This week I am going to do my very best to not let my day job consume my whole life. These past few weeks have been so stressful and I have had no time to do the things I enjoy, like reading and blogging, and the lack of “me time” has had quite an impact on my mood and motivation.

I have realized that part of my sense of self-worth is tied up in my ability to be creative and make things, even if it’s just a blog post. I let everything go and now I feel low and disappointed in myself. I have let both myself and my readers down and I haven’t taken any steps toward my goals. Not one step in two weeks.

This week I have to make time to do balance work and writing better. I have to let people know, particularly my bosses, that I am not working for free and that I do not get paid to worry and stress and much as they want me to worry and stress. From now on I just do my job and my job only so that I can have some kind of time left over for myself.

I can’t promise that I will be back to my old writing schedule but I can promise you I will be here and writing more than I have in the last few weeks. I have missed this time and I have missed expressing myself and my ideas and I have missed all of you. I want to feel good again, I want to feel like I am doing something good again!

  1. I know exactly how you feel! I think that in our modern age there are always a million different things to do. A million projects on the go. A million shows to watch, movies to see, places to go, people to visit! Everything is so busy all the time, and you always feel like you should have more time because there are so many options. There’s two main things to do to combat this: one, simplify! Limit your options, it can help the feeling overwhelmed. Two, stay focused on what you’re doing not what you’re not-doing. This should also help. Give yourself more space to just be. <3 Good luck!

    1. Thanks for the advice, I will certainly work on changing my mindset. In situations that are out of your control that is all you can do really. I’ve simplified a lot but I should focus less on what I am not/can not do. Doing so has only made me feel bad while the situation remains the same. If nothing else I can change my perspective :)
