The difficult things going on in my life over the past year have taken most of my mental and physical energy to get through so I have not been putting a lot of energy into my home and I’m not liking the state that it’s in. I do keep up with the cleaning – dishes, trash, laundry, sweeping, dusting etc., but there are problem areas of clutter that I pushed aside for later when I had more energy. I also would like to do some re-decorating.
Now that I’ve worked through some of the things going on, my mind is going to these issues, but I can’t seem to find the motivation or inspiration to get going on it and it’s bothering me. Like my head is saying get moving and do something and my body is saying, let’s take a nap. I think it’s because it seems overwhelming and I don’t even know where to start.
I try to get myself to focus on one area at a time and do baby steps – because this is what worked for me in the past, but I’m still not feeling it, even though I want it.
Last week I worked 50 hours so that probably has something to do with it, but I think even if I worked my normal 40, the motivation wouldn’t be there. Maybe I need to accept that I need rest, or do I need to visualize, or what?
I started to research last night and some ideas are building, but I thought I’d ask you if you’ve been in this situation and figured out a way to be inspired and motivated to de-clutter and re-decorate. I detest having to force myself to do anything but love to do things when I feel inspired – the question is, how do I get there with limited time? I also have limited funds for this so it all needs to be very thrifty.
As I write this, I’m seeing some lack statements so I probably need to work on that. I also think I may have written on this before so I’ll have to go back and check my own articles, hahaha. But I’d still love to hear your thoughts, advice and tips. If you’ve written posts on it, please share the links in the comments. Thank-you very much!
Hopefully I’ll ace this and can then share the results.
