Hi friends, how are you all doin’?
I have been feeling pretty uninspired lately. I wouldn’t say that I’m in a bad place. I am mostly contented, if not happy. But I have been so busy with work that with what little time I have left, I spend on either catching up on sleep or just doing mindless activities like watching TV or occasionally, read a light novel.
Naturally, I have fallen behind all the “productive” goals that I intended to do early this year. Waking up at 5.30 am, hitting the gym, cooking, and most of all, writing. Yes, the one thing that I have been consistently passionate about has taken a backseat.
It’s not that I don’t want to write. Many times (or rather, the rare free times that I have now), I do. But when my mind is so bogged down with work and life, it is difficult for me to think of what to write. When I am so tired, my mind just wants to go on auto pilot and consume entertainment. When my mind has been working so hard at work, it is incapable of churning out meaningful writings.
And so, I have not written for a while. I haven’t even been journaling in my own private journal. I do not want to only write about rants and complaints, but when you do not have happy thoughts, you cannot write happy thoughts.
I am not sure how long this will last. I do not see work and life responsibilities slowing down any time soon, but hopefully, I will get back on track. Unfortunately, I will need to prioritise other tasks like working out over writing (that is one thing I need to get back on track – the last time I hit the gym was 3 weeks ago!), so let’s see where life leads me.
Have you been so overwhelmed with life that you kinda just give up trying to do the tasks that are not absolutely necessary for your survival?
Love, Jess xoxo
