So I have lacked motivation, inspiration and everything in-between, and I do not know why. My blog this blog was my one true sense of joy I would journal my thoughts, and through that everything inspired me, everything I saw had a story worth telling and I was going to tell it.
I am sure like all good storytellers, writers and content creators the creative pool runs dry at some point, and we need to go back to the drawing board, the core of what started this creative combustion in the first place.
I have been trying to write a post for a while and stopped mid-sentence because I thought it was not good enough, or my thought process meandered off track and lead me to nothingness.
The signs that something is wrong
- I became (still am) irritable and projecting my frustrations onto the wrong people (FYI my family)
- All I want to do is curl up in bed and watch series
- When I am out all I can think of is going home
- Nothing excites me anymore
I did not choose to feel this way, and maybe I just need to get away from the moment for a bit and come back with a clear mind.
I want to be my inspired, excited self again I miss that person so much. (Come back come back she cries to herself)
I should be excited, but I am more overwhelmed by the possibilities that lie ahead. I have decided to take a very big risk, and I know the unknown is scary and maybe me feeling like this is me second guessing myself and looking at all the red tape hindering my progression right now is overwhelming. I do know patience is key, and everything will get done in due time.
I read this the other day; “to get to what you love you must first be patient with what you hate” It is true so maybe me feeling this way is just me trying to be patient with what I hate.
Then I watched this Jacksgap video below and it made me feel a tad bit normal again, everyone feels overwhelmed and lacks motivation from time to time. (Note to self do not let this take over who I am.)
I have changed and the things I once found exciting no longer excite me, this can only mean one thing time to find out new exciting things that will bring me back to life!
Do you get overwhelmed by life and lack motivation at times? Let me know what you do to beat the funk.
Peace love and Happiness

I guess everyone does feel a little lost and disconnected at times..but we shouldn’t let that become our everyday life, isn’t it? So when I feel low and dull I start looking for new things that I can try,learn and have fun about 🙂
Thanks for your comment and that’s exactly what I am trying to do finding something exciting again and I am learning something new so I am trying hard to turn the negatives into positives!!!
Welcome to life, you’re in good company child. Happens to the best of us at some point or another or another or another….you catch my drift? This is very good reminder for us all…Isaiah 40:29-31 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. “. Love you long time child xxx
So true thabks for that encouraging words!
Sounds like some post-holiday blues? Maybe time to plan the next trip………But seriously, give yourself a break. Be kind to yourself. Read some interesting books rather than watching series maybe?
I think I definitely got post holiday blues but working on a change of scenery. I started reading too thanks for the tips much appreciated I am sure I will be back to myself in no time keeping the positivity alive!!!! Xxxx
