Plants First, Fish Next

The original intent of this journal was to chronicle the trials and tribulations of the struggling twenty-something, as I searched for love and happiness in the small city-burb of ManchVegas, NH. Now, I'm thirty-something, I've found love in many forms, happiness in even more, and now the struggle is just... well... life. And finding time to do the million and one things I want to do- including writing.

Without a Rudder

Ever feel directionless?  Like you're floating?  Not in the "happy cloud" way, but in the "I don't know where I'm going and I don't have the energy to care" way?  I've kinda got that feeling right now.  Hence why the post-silence.  I don't feel drained or depressed.  I do plenty of things just fine, but it's not easy to gather motivation.  Offer me a choice and I don't really care- sometimes I'll pick one just to move forward, but I don't have a strong inclination towards... well... anything.  It's been long enough that I need to DO something to snap out of it, but what?

Have you ever been in this mood?  Any suggestions?

    I have certainly been in this position before. I'm not sure what got me out of it. I know that doesn't really help. Maybe start something. Pull out the chair you've been promising to recover or start a new goal all together. Commit to running X miles in 2011, or even just in February. Or schedule a day to do something you've never done before. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or go indoor skydiving.

    For me, whatever it was that finally pushed me, once I started going again it helped to keep going. "An object that is at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force." That isn't just physics baby.

    You could be experiencing some winter blahs. The antidote is different for everyone, but I'll tell you what makes it 56 x worse: TV. Maybe take a TV break?
