So, I thought I’d write this post about how my motivation has been lousy lately. Then I thought I should take a picture of something to put in the post, but I couldn’t get myself motivated enough to set up a decent shot. So no picture, because I didn’t want to subject you to a lousy picture, just because I can’t get motivated. Then I thought, “Aw, maybe I just won’t bother blogging at all.” But here I am, working up just enough oomph to blog about how I don’t seem to have any oomph.
I’m not sure where my motivation went, but it’s been a tough couple weeks in the sewing department. I just can’t seem to get excited about cutting fabric, and that’s a rather essential step to take if I’m going to be putting anything together. Amanda and I were going to work on this motivation thing together by having a craft day, but we can’t seem to get that off the ground either, and we’ve tried three times. No oomph.
Today I’ve been forcing myself to do the tiny tasks — punch out tag shapes and circles from cardboard packages, for repurposing, and attaching the strings to almost-finished tags. Tiny stuff that requires little motivation. I also managed to start baking a cake late enough in the day that it’s going to ruin gym time, but I’m turning that into an excuse for a date night with SciFi Man. And maybe after that I’ll be able to find a little more motivation to create? I don’t know.
What do you do when you’re not feeling motivated? How do you get your mojo back? I need some help here.
