Lack of motivation


So let’s start with it being a month or two that I have written anything on this blog. Even though I told myself that I’ll be so consistent in 2019 with weekly posts etc. As you can see I have failed miserably. It’s not that I don’t want to write but it is the lack of motivation. There are so many things and ideas on my mind that I need to do and want to achieve. The thing that eventually happens is that I just hang on the couch and watch Netflix because I don’t know where to start.

All these YouTubers/ Instagrammers that I follow “seem”  like they have their shit together. They make lists and cross off things of these lists. Even writing these lists can be overwhelming. I bought this planner a few months ago but to be completely honest I started writing in it and well now it’s next to my bed and staring at me. I do want to use it because I am sure it will help with jump-starting all my ideas.

The funny thing is when I am at my normal work I do cross things of my list because I don’t want anybody to come and tell me that I didn’t do my job well. I work so hard at my job but I want that motivation to make its way into the life I want to create for myself.


  • Getting a new job. I have been working as a teacher for almost 15 years now. It has been fun but it’s time to do what I love!!!  Preferably in a creative business. I would love to write more and do more with social media. Unfortunately, I can’t do this the way I want because at the moment I am a teacher. You need to be extremely careful with what you post online.
  • Finally, have the guts to publish this children’s book. I have mentioned this before but it is still on my list.
  • Do more around my house for example paint the walls and stairs. I mean they look good but I would love to change it up a little bit.
  • Here we go again but I need to get my gym motivation on! How do people do this?


The first thing on my list is to get a new job. Time is passing by so quickly and I need to find something new by 1 Aug 2019. I don’t need to leave my current job because they want me to stay but I am 41 now and I want to go to work happy in 2019 🙂 So fingers crossed that when I write my next post it will be about how happy I am that I have found something new. I feel that once I have done this part of my list, the other things will fall into place.


This was not a very long post but I just wanted to ramble a little bit. I guess I am going to get up from my couch now and start writing in my planner again. It is Monday and that is always the best day to start 😉

I would love to hear how you guys get motivated to create a life you love.

Talk to you soon,
