Today I seek motivation. From all of you.

Truth: I have so many words I want to say, post ideas scheduled out, but I can’t write them.

Sometimes life throws us lemons and things get a little sour as we try to find the sugar to mix in to the lemonade. If that makes any sense.

So if you have any motivation, leave it here. If I need it, then likely someone else will too and will find it from the rest of you in the comments.

      That’s a great suggestion! I’m trying to get back into reading before bed, if for no other reason than it means putting down my phone. πŸ˜‰

    I love that quote. My biggest motivation is watching steve jobs stanford commencement speech. LOOK IT UP!

    when i am needing motivation, i step away from blogging world altogether because it can sometimes be a very noisy place and i feel lost. i meet non-blogging people, read fiction, enjoy things i enjoy doing..and somewhere along the line, i find energy and motivation to get back. also, i do like to do life update post or life currently to slowly get back on track πŸ™‚

      Those are great suggestions! As much as I love blogging, it does get pretty crowded sometimes! It doesn’t help that my brain is ALWAYS thinking of new ideas and I never stop thinking. ha!

    This happened to me earlier this summer. I ended up walking away for a few months to enjoy life and to remember why I started my blog. Try taking a few days away from emails, your blog, and social media to see if that helps. I really hope things get better for you soon!

      Thanks, girl! I think it’s a mix of health stuff (see today’s post) and reminding myself to SLOW down sometimes.

    I find motivation doing things I normally don’t do. I.e drinking coffee instead of tea (Unhealthy so I don’t do that often lol.) jogging, listening to a genre of music I’m not familiar with. Motivation is found outside your daily routine. πŸ™‚

    Oooh, I feel you here. I’m constantly falling victim to ALLTHEIDEAS and none of the motivation. I find that turning everything off (phone in the other room, no TV, no music, I even will put my computer on airplane mode so I’m not temped.) and forcing myself to write for just 15 minutes helps. If in 15 minutes I’m still struggling, I let it go – clearly I’m not in the right mindset to write. But more often than not, I keep on writing for as much time as I have. Sometimes the key is just getting started!

      Ohhhh girl you go all airplane mode?! I’ve done timers for 30 minutes or an hour, but if people start texting, it’s hard to just ignore them so that may be a game changer…

    If I’m in a “funk” I embrace it. Sometimes it’s ok to not do as much as planned or as quickly as planned. If something that should take 10 mins takes a half hour, that’s ok. It still feels good when it’s finished.

    I love the music idea from above. When I need to concentrate and get pumped up a little, I put on movie soundtracks. Nothing get’s the blood pumping like a battle-scene music πŸ˜‰

    I also make a list and break it down item by item so it seems more manageable. Being able to check off those little tasks goes a long way in making me feel like I’m making progress.

    Another one is great quotes, but you see to have that covered! And sometimes what we really need is a short break to let our brain reboot.
