I woke up feeling lethargic and blah. I feel like the past couple of weeks have been a lot of fun, but I’m not moving forward in my LIFE. Everything feels stagnant and sort of sad. I had been doing really well for the first 3.5 months of this year, but mixed with a lot of family hurdles, birthdays and travel, I’ve been feeling a little off track. Or rather a LOT off track.
As my hubby and I ventured out on our morning hike, we were both feeling stuck in this thick haze.
Here were some of our yucky thoughts:
Where is my motivation?
I feel so behind with all the goals I set for myself.
I just want to go back to bed, I don’t want to face any of this right now.
My body is too tired.
I want to paint, but I know I need to clean the house and do laundry as well. There isn’t enough time for it all.
I feel overwhelmed.
Does this look familiar? Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE traveling, and taking a break from everyday life. But something happens when I’ve had too much of a break. I start to feel like I am DOING NOTHING and that’s a horrible feeling.
Now all those feelings may really be there, they aren’t illusions,.. but they ARE just feelings.
I can restart.
I already had some nice goals in place awhile back, so I can start over and rediscover them. Why not? What if it’s that easy? There’s no sense in being mad at myself for where I am at. That’s not going to help anything.
Today can be the restart day, even though it’s Friday midday before a long weekend, I can still begin getting back on track.
I just realized something else, I don’t even need to DO anything to get back, it’s only a mindset. And I can change my mind. I have that power. I don’t have to do anything except be willing to reconnect.
So today is that! Today I restart, reevaluate, reconnect, recharge and recommit into the last part of May! I’m feeling better already. Ah!
