I haven’t had the motivation to blog lately. I’ve seen this mentioned on another site I follow, so I guess I’m not alone. I would guess that lack of motivation for anyone would be a current problem.
Still, it bugs me and I had to think about it for awhile.
I know that I am an introvert. I “recharge” my energy by alone time and doing something relaxing, like reading. Extroverts need their people time to feel better. So, it has occurred to me that I am getting a big extra dose of relaxation time, and without any big amount of stress in my life – like what came with my former job – I don’t have the “urgency” to get things done. Hmm. I suppose this is what comes with job retirement. I shouldn’t feel disturbed by that, and I’m not really; it’s just different. It is something new to adjust into, so as they say “practice makes perfect”. I’m still in the process of developing my daily routine and I like it.
I have been working on my next book, so that is productive. I am following the same theme, but taking it to the next level and making it a journey through healing. I guess the blog got set aside due to that work. I also know that creativity of any kind has an ebb and flow rhythm.
Just wait until the tide comes in.
