Just not feelin’ it these days

Don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the weather, the fact that I was sick for three weeks straight, the shorter days. I really don’t know exactly but, for whatever reason, I am having a hard time getting into blogging again. Not just blogging either, but all kinds of things. Finding focus has been a real struggle for me, finding motivation has been even harder, and I’m frustrated by all of it but evidently not enough to do something about it.

Is anyone else feeling this way, or is it just me?

I feel in need of inspiration but there are so many things around me that require my attention so I don’t feel like I would see it if it walked up and smacked me in the face. My brain feels scattered, my body feels tired, and my spirit feels malnourished.

Gah, I’m just whining. I’ll probably feel better in the morning. 🙂



  1. Aww Evie, it will come. I cycle like this about once a year. For a good three months, I have no idea what I am doing and for why! Sooner or later I get a burst of energy, and then suddenly, there is so much purpose all over. Just keep on keeping on, and we’ll see you again when the tides change. It’s a wonky time right now anyway…-Kim

  2. I’m with Kim. K. 🙂
    Sometimes we get that way (in limbo) before a before a big flurry of busyness or creativity. It might be a time to gather your strength, and prepare for a whirlwind. 🙂
    Sending you much loves and well-wishes.

  3. Thanks guys. Maybe you’re right. Maybe it’s like a mental nesting period that your body lays claim to before something big happens. I know the holidays are coming up so perhaps it is a reaction to that.

    I’m glad to know I’m not alone or crazy for feeling that way. Crazy for other reasons but not that one!!!

    love to you both!

  4. Many times I want to quit blogging but I think about the time I’ve put into it and most of all I’d miss communicating with all the people I’ve “met”. I know my blog has taken a turn from the early days. It use to be more interesting. Now it’s the same old stuff. Take care.

  5. Joan, that is definitely part of it for me as well. When this blog was initiated, I felt fresh and full of ideas. Unschooling was new to me and I was excited to explore our journey along its path. Now it’s a bunch of posts where I bitch and moan about things. Not very inspirational. LOL

    I want to be more positive and need to focus on that.

  6. Between not wanting to share a lot of personal stuff and trying to be positive, I find I don’t have a heck of a lot of material to write about.

  7. I totally agree with idea that you are probably getting ready to be busy, busy, busy. We all have our down times and they aren’t very fun.

    I’m glad you’re feeling better. I was beginning to worry about ya.

    It has been like that around here. I wish I had some words of wisdom. Just know that you are not the only one. 😉

  9. Me too! Me too! Been feeling sluggish in general. Which is not fun! I’ve just not been inspired lately. But I always have a short attention span, and were it not for all the great people I’ve met through blogging, I’d probably hang it up too.
