Yup, I have figured out why I have been in a funk lately. Listless, unhappy, and no passion at all.
Whats been missing is.... accomplishment. Getting things done. Good things, useful things, helpful things, needful things.....
Yesterday I went to the gym for some cardio work, did grocery shopping, cleaned a few places in the house, made two new pieces of jewelry, and, and....... I did things. At the end of the day I was much, much happier so I stopped to analyze why.
I realize now that I am addicted to getting things done. During the school year, each days accomplishments are far too numerous to mention. A thousand little deeds performed, and each enough to make a change in someones life. Here it is, Summer and my time is my own.... and I wasn't getting enough 'done'.
My Id does not recognize a day spent reading novels as 'getting things done', and proceeded to let me know in it's own special little way.
This morning, a to-do list that's doable, but a push. Just the way I like it. By the end of the day I will be able to look back and SEE what I've gotten done... so Id can just shut up and take a nap.
