I'm having a rough time, friends.
I'm totally, completely, utterly unmotivated.
This is what my day is looking like lately...
Work. Stare off into the distance during breaks.
Drive home. Take dog to dog park. Play Draw Something.
Eat dinner. Collapse on the couch.
Comment on blogs...maybe.
Scroll through Tumblr. Reblog with abandon.
Get in an argument with the husband about going to the gym.
(Sometimes I go, sometimes I don't)
Fall asleep thinking about the things I haven't done.
The more I repeat this cycle the more I get used to it. The more I get used to it, the more frustrated and BEHIND I feel. The more frustrated and behind I feel, the less motivation I have. And on and on.
How do you guys get motivated when you are in a mood like this? I have so many great books to read...they are just sitting on my shelves. I have picked up The Disenchantments and put it next to me or put it in my bag AT LEAST four different times now. I know I will love this book! Why won't I open it?
And my WIP...I love the premise so much. I've hit a little snag, so I know that's my problem there, but I'm usually so excited to brainstorm and figure it out and I'm just...not. I just stare at it.
And we won't even talk about how my pants STILL don't fit.
UGH you guys...this isn't even all of it. I could go on and on and on, but I'm already on my own nerves.
How do you shake yourselves out of these moods like this? How do you motivate yourself? I've posted about being in a reading funk before, but this is an everything funk. And I hate it.
Someone kick me in the pants, please.
