There are lots of habits that kill motivation: TV, over-working, drinking, over-/under almost anything!
I’ve heard lots of terms that describe the problem. I like simple words like ‘craving’.
The solution is simply to stop acting out when I am feeling out of it.
There is a lot of daily work required to give up pacification.
I am into writing and reading which fills up my life when I don’t act out. Otherwise, I am happy doing all the other kinds of work/adult-play.
This is what I call being alive and well ,in my day to day ,with work, chores, hobbies and people (mostly friends and relatives).
But everybody has his/her story and we pretty much do the same stuff to live and stay sane.
People with the resources are pretty grateful for their lives.
Holidays put needless stress on all of us.
So I like to remind myself to get off the coach and do the work now.
I’m happy this week to be at the library for an hour.
I’m thinking of ways to pay it forward. For me, it is to make my annual donation to my two favourite charities.
So, outside the wide range of stuff in my busy life, I am grateful for it all: good, bad and ugly.
