    Just Do It

    I have very little to no drive to do anything lately. And it's dumb because it makes me so sad that I do absolutely nothing with my entire day. I want to feel motivated to do things. Today, my husband said "If you want to do something, just do it." He was trying to console me...

    When I watched the film ' Made in

    I Must Have Misplaced Mine Somewhere!

    I feel like my motivation has been missing for months now. I haven't been happy at home or work. It always puts me in a funk and I feel like I'll never get out. It's been really bad for the last 2 months, and sometimes It takes every last ounce of strength I have to even just get...

    Mostly, Not Sometimes

    The main reason I usually lack motivation boils down to one thing. I'm thankful beyond words for friends - offline or here on EP. But I've been trying my entire life, from as far back as I can remember, which was before I turned two, only a short number of months after my...

    How To Get On With It?

    Sometimes all the things I need to do to get back on track are overwhelming, and I do not take care of business. Today I got some things done. It was hard but it was worth it. I rarely write this short of s story, but, I just ran out of motivation.

    In the last few weeks I've lacked motivation in school. I just don't have the drive to do it anymore. At least, I don't have the drive to do any of the work. Sure, I'll listen in class, and most of the time I'll take notes. Sure, I'll hang out with my friends, and do the projects...
