    Stuck in a rut

    Yep; that’s currently me. Stuck in a rut.

    Tired, unmotivated, unfulfilled… does this sound familiar to anyone else? Please tell me I’m not alone!

    Should I just delete my blog and not bother anymore? Should I keep working on my blog to try and grow it? Should I find a new hobby? … These are all the questions that are running through my head all the time at the moment.

    Same sh*t different day 

    Here’s the thing; I changed my hours at work so that I work 4 long days allowing me to have a day off in the week. The plan for that day off was to spend it working on my blog and working on handmade crafts as that’s what I enjoy doing. But hello motivation?! Where are you? I get to my day off and I feel really tired and then I have no motivation to do anything. I’m feeling as though that ‘what’s the point?’ attitude has taken over and I’m not sure how to shift it.

    My life feels like a circle of go to work, come home and eat dinner, feel tired and unmotivated and then go to bed. Then we repeat again the next day… and just keep repeating this circle.

    I feel like my life has no purpose  

    Up until the last couple of years, I feel as though I always had a purpose in life. I went to University and got a degree in Graphic Arts, I started a teacher training course (although totally hated it so dropped out and got a full-time job instead). I met Shaun and over time we started saving to buy a house which gave me something to focus on. Once we bought our house we spent months and months renovating it before we moved in. We enjoyed our first Christmas together in our house and adopted a cat so we have a little fur baby to look after… But now everything seems to have gone totally stale. I suddenly feel like I have no purpose in life and I’m not really sure what I’m doing anymore.

    Don’t get me wrong I completely appreciate the situation that I’m in. The fact that I’m in a happy relationship and that I own a house and have a beautiful fur baby. I’m so grateful for all of these things.

    I’ve always been someone that strives off of success and learning/ creating.

    I always feel like I need something to focus on to keep me busy and I guess that’s what I’m really lacking at the moment. This blog has always been my ‘thing’ to focus on and pour my heart and soul in to. But I feel like I’ve totally lost my way with this blog right now.

    Have you ever felt like this? How did you get out of the situation? I’d love to hear from you!
