Usually, I allow myself at least one day per month where I can pass on making a blog post. I usually reserve these for those particularly blah days where I’m uninspired, can’t find anything interesting to write about, or just simply don’t have the time. Today was almost one of those days. After all, it’s March, a new month, and so I have one of those freebie days available to me. I was wondering if that was really how I wanted to start the month, and the answer was simply no. Sometimes, especially when it’s the hardest, you just have to sit your butt down and force yourself to write.
There’s no way around the fact that I’ve been in a funk this week. I haven’t had any of the drive, motivation, or time that I seemed to have had last week, which propelled me forward and kept me going. Something’s got to break the funk, and allowing myself to just skip a post because I’m not feeling like it will do nothing to help push through the clouds and get into smooth sailing again. Tomorrow, I’m really going to do what I can do make sure I break this funk and get back to work! I’m going to try to do a little bit of it tonight, but let’s be realistic. It’s Project Runway night…
What do you do to help get yourself out of a funk? Is there a special ritual, place, treat, song, etc, etc, etc, that helps to get you motivated? Do you feel sometimes you just need to try to weather out the storm? For me, I’m just going to try to be positive and remember that, despite the funk, if I can manage something, I should. Usually, that one little bit is just the thing needed to pick up momentum again.
And, see, I’m in such a fuzzle lately that I completely forgot to thank concience nonsense for following my blog! Thank you! Welcome aboard!
