I've really been thinking about what I want my blog to be, and who I want it to inspire. For the most part I try my best to keep the content upbeat and inspirational, but sometimes I just need to keep it real, which brings me to today.
For the past couple of weeks I have been struggling with motivation, specifically lack there of! I don't have motivation to blog, very little to sew, not wanting to take the time to sit down and work through additional pattern ideas, and the list goes on. I find myself glued to my computer (reading other people's blogs!), as well as the Food Network (I don't cook, but love watching others create yummy dishes!), instead of doing anything constructive. I anticipate that this funk (totally borrowed the word from my sweet friend Amanda!) is just a phase, as life within the past year has been nothing I've wanted for myself. I'm coming up on the last final transition, which technically sets me free, yet gives me great concern for the future. I'm also coming up on a birthday, which adds stress to my life situation, and all I want at this time in my life is to be wanted, both in my personal life as well as my professional life.
Deep down inside I know that God has a great plan for my life. Yet sometimes I question it, as I don't think I'm strong enough to deal with everything that has been thrown my way, and that makes me sad. He knows what He's doing, thus who am I to question his timing and his ways?
Looks as though I kind of got off on a tangent, but if you have any motivation tricks/ideas/ways, I'd love for you to share them in the comment section, as frankly I'm desperate!
One lat thing before I sign off...I want to share my new ringtone. Not like my phone rings frequently, but when it does, I enjoy hearing that "this has gotta be the good life". It always reminds me that I have to take initiative to make this the "good life".
