Call it motivation, inspiration or whatever I don't have any. Yesterday the holidays were officially over and time to get to the to do list. I did do a little laundry, paid some bills and ran a few errands but ended up at Walmart I think so I didn't have to come home and face the LIST.
I use to be a self driven perfectionist that didn't need motivation I ran on auto pilot everyday and got up and did whatever needed to be done without thinking about it. I don't know if it is the lack of energy and I know when I start a project the chances of me running out of energy before it is completed keeps me from starting things cause I would end up with a worse mess in the house. A lot of my list is cleaning out every drawer and cabinet in the house and that can be done in one day each. Is it pain, I'm still having to baby the rib til it heals and I know how little it takes to make my hands hurt with the arthritis and fibro together. Don't know if more anti-depressants would help or not, don't really want to be on more.
This is the first time in my life I have had no motivation. I told Ken yesterday maybe I need to buy something new for the house and that might inspire me to change things around and clean. I use to always have new ideas for decorating and now, nothing. I want to clean and do some painting but just don't have the drive to do it. Maybe I have some kind of mental block going on that I need to analyze.
Anyway, thanks for reading and if anyone has any tips on how to get motivated let me know before the health department comes.
luv and hugs
