Where did my motivation go?

As part of my goal to blog more often, I thought I would try and keep up with Five Minute Friday again! If you don’t know what that is, it is basically a community of Christian writers that write for five minutes, and only five minutes, on the given prompt.

There is no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write.

I love that because sometimes I will just have so many thoughts going through my head that I just don’t know where to start..

Basically, set your timer for five minutes and then stop when the timer goes off…easy peasy! Care to join? Check out the Five Minute Friday website!

Today’s prompt is:

Where did my motivation go


I don’t know why the prompt for today is so perfect…but it is! I have been complaining for a week now about not having motivation to get anything done. Maybe it is the after holiday release…or the fact that we are still on school holiday.. I have just been so lazy lately!

Where did my  motivation go?

I realize that the prompt is probably suggesting that I talk about motivating other people, or something along those lines.. But how can I do that if I can’t even motivate myself?

I have a huge list of things that I should be working on. One of the problems is that I don’t know where to start.. And another is that I think of starting one of them and I just say ‘eh’…and go find something else to do.

I know my motivation will come back at the worse time, like right in the middle of our school year starting, or if we get a foster placement..you know, when I am going to be busy.

That’s the way it goes.

I am hoping that I get some stuff done soon! Do you have motivation to get stuff done right now? Send some to me! 😉


Ok, well, I guess that was five minutes!

Are you going to join me in doing the Five Minute Friday?

    I am motivated by the result more than the process right now. We recently moved to Michigan and we are living in a rental for the year. There is an extra bedroom that I want to make into a library/office. It currently is filled with boxes of books, clothes, and board games. I want the office sooo it is my motivation. Fortunately having a tidy room is motivating my husband to help me tackle it tomorrow. 🙂 Yay!

    Praying the best for the new year!

  3. Yes, absolutely, that motivation returns in full force when we are most busy! Action comes before feelings, perhaps? So we just have to ‘do the next thing’.
