I really have an "issue" with getting motivated. There are times I am full of energy, and ready to go, and I can crank out the projects and the weight loss and the daily minutiae of life without a problem. And then there are times (more often than not, I am afraid), where I am just not quite...there. Where it feels as if I am juuuust shy of the drive to go and do the many many projects I *want* to do...I mean, I have the majority of the materials needed. I have the time (in the evenings, once the boys are in bed--some I could do during the day). I just don't have that certain, special...'something'.
I am hoping that by getting myself into a better frame of health, I will rediscover that drive, but in the meanwhile, what else can I do to push myself to the actual point of production?
Added to the mix is my frustrated perfectionist mindset. I know I can work on that, and I need to. I'm getting a good deal better than I used to be. But it is a never-ending process. Especially, when a project involves something that simply cannot be replaced. Either it is a one-of-a-kind thing, or they no longer make it, etc. Having butchered some silk suiting years ago (a beautiful shade of slate blue, btw, which looks really good on me), I realllllly don't like tempting fate. Being careful will take of at least the cutting issues, but oh, I hate the waste...
Suggestions? Any "btdt" kind of experience to help me? What motivates you when the drive just is not there, but there are lots of things to be done? Help!
