What do you do when you just can’t seem to find the motivation to do, well just about anything. Now before you start thinking depression, I am not depressed. Just feels like a stalemate. Like I know getting up and just walking a quick trip around the block would do wonders. Especially when the dogs are staring at you like “c’ mon man, we’ve been cooped up here all day.” Or grabbing one of the many cameras just eager to get footage of just about anything. Come to think of it, wouldn’t even need to leave the house, just tend to one of the many tasks waiting for attention on the todo list. Here I sit, finally writing a post, after another 10 days (or so) of putting it off and still it feels almost like a chore even though there is a sweet sense of satisfaction once it’s posted. Just can’t seem to wrap my head around it. There has to be something to motivate oneself. And while I’m trying to figure it out, I’ll sit, rather lay on the couch binge watch Discovery plus, the latest Netflix craze ( just finished Bridgerton 😳) or sweep through a season of The Office again, my latest goto binge series.
It amazes me how many of you are continuing to churn out new and original daily posts. Some of you multiple times in a day. When I was doing my 365’s I was there with you, but for me that was more like a challenge, which made it easier for me to complete, while many of you seem to do it simply for the joy. So what is it? I get if it is a challenge and I could also understand if you do it for monetary reasons, but unless I’m missing that money boat (and if I am, someone please direct me to the nearest information dock) I don’t think a majority on here are doing it as a means of income. So what drives you? When there are no obligations otherwise, what inspires you to be active, motivate, or just plain avoid succumbing to the beauty of couch surfing and continue missing out on my real joie de vivre, which would be nice to find again. Not sure if these were rhetorical questions or if I am just trying to psychoanalyze myself, but if you have some insight to share I will not ignore it.
