I was embarrassed to find that I haven’t blogged since March. What the heck have I been doing with all my time????? Sad to say, I haven’t been doing anything of note. It’s been a trying year and I have found myself drained physically, mentally, and emotionally.
At the beginning of the year, my Dad’s emphysema worsened. After a month, we finally learned that a combination of things lead to the situation. By the beginning of March, he was back to good health.
Then my elderly dog got ill. She had a bladder infection. And then two weeks later it came roaring back. She was sick to her stomach and for almost a week I fed her by hand 8 times a day. She got back to good health by the end of April.
In between Mel’s Animal Day Care was in business. I took care of my brother’s 2 puppies and older dog on three occasions–one for as long as a week.
By May I found myself in the doldrums. I wasn’t depressed, I just didn’t have any stamina. Fatigue had me in it’s grips. I was able to do the regular stuff, but my brain couldn’t wrap itself around anything challenging.
Now, I find myself with a list a mile long and trying to get back on solid ground. My motivation has reached rock bottom.
I am attempting to get it back together. I’m making myself work on my list every day. I haven’t accomplished much but at least I am working in the right direction.
How do you re-motivate yourself when you don’t have the energy to move forward? Post the tricks you’ve learned. I could use the advice!
