It has been a difficult time for me in trying to impose some sort of pressure on myself and as it has been stated before you need self-motivations because of exactly the problem being motivated by others has – they can give it, they can take it away. I prefer self motivation that is with me even when I am by myself. That way it stays with you. I am really searching for this kernel of motivation right now in my writing as well as other aspects of my life but things often have a way of trying to steal it. We will see what happens.
Family – Celebrated my granddaughter’s first birthday last weekend and just yesterday I watched her take about seven or eight steps in a row. The girl is walking she just has to get more coordinated. Her vocabulary is up to about twenty words and I am trying to wait to give her the better words that will drive her parents nuts. The rest of things with my family is pretty much the same. It’s not bad but stagnant which is almost bad to me.
Finances – Kind of in limbo here. Waiting for things again as now I need to wait until Fall of this year to start school and there are still no immediate job prospects so once again I remain in survival mode financially.
Reading – Not so much I have been feeling my heart drawn to Robert Heinlein again but I have no idea when I will have the time to just sit and enjoy his stuff. Other things seem more pressing.
Writing – Been writing the blog sort of with a minimal goal of at least one post a day rain or shine. So far this has been true since the beginning of 2015 so I would like to see how long I can keep the streak going. Book is pretty much coming along very slowly but once I have the outline it should write itself and without school to worry about I should be able to finish this well before fall.
Right now I am self motivated in this area of my life but the pressure is not as great as it has been at other times and perhaps this is what I need to be exploring. Not so much the motivation but the intensity of the motivation is what is bothering me.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
