Monday Funday

Back to the grind this week, and for some reason today I am seriously needing some motivation. I sound a bit crazy because things have been great, and I'm so ever grateful for the love and happiness I have felt pouring into my life. We had an awesome 4th of July celebrating with friends & family, cold beer, and fireworks.

I don't what it is though, I feel I am in a personal slump in being creative, inspired, and motivated. This probably applies to me professionally more than anything, so I'm looking for some motivators out there.

Having a job is motivation enough, in this economy, I do realize. Maybe I just need to paint something (not that I paint), do something creative, recharge those juices. Dom suggests something else, the thing that most men would recommend when needing a release. ;) Too personal for you, sorry... but while I appreciate his suggestion, this is different. I want to listen to some good music, watch an inspiring movie, and do a good deed. Volunteer perhaps?

What do you kids do to get that energy flowing again?

I have completely felt this way - and strangely enough, I think sometimes watching a movie can really help. I am trying to think of some of those movies that help me when I feel like this. I completely agree though, lately, I've been feeling professionally in a slump. You're not feeling sorry for yourself - you're just trying to be the best you possibly can.

I am in the same slump. Trying to write creative, funny, relevant blogs but missing the mark. I usually suggest doing something that is out of your comfort zone. Find something completely new that you haven't done before, like a night at the improv. Or swim twenty laps. Take my advice. I'm not using it!! :-)

I like to either switch up my routine, or start a new hobby. Right now I am working on a quilt - to piece my old tshirts together. I also love to jog, which is relaxing too. I feel the same way about the job - it's hard to stay motivated and keep yourself energized. Hope this helps darlin!

I'm so fortunate to get to work with the Special Olympics through my job once a month. We established a volunteer program to teach life and work skills to the athletes. My job can be a PAIN sometimes, but just when I feel a slump coming on, up comes the next class. Our students/athletes are amazing, inspiring and so much fun to be around. They energize me like nothing else.

Volunteer with a great organization or take up a class on something like pottery or dance class? Do something you wouldn't really seek out to do you know? It will inspire you in so many ways!
