Motivationally Speaking...

Motivationally (which I don't think is technically a word) speaking, I feel like this girl. You know, the girl from the Above The Influence commercial? That's how I feel lately. If you don't understand, let me explain.

I've been M.I.A from my blog for two weeks. I don't know that it's been noticeable, but I definitely feel it. Over the summer, I had plenty of time and sunlight to go out and take outfit photos. But it's fall now and I've been slapped back into the reality of clocks falling back and nor'easters rising up, of more rain and wet leaves than hot apple cider and knit sweaters. Without a license, a car, or time, outfit photo opportunities have plummeted. And if you follow me on Twitter, you've seen me whine about the lack of places to take photos in my house. All this complaining isn't doing anything, I know, but bare with me.

Anyway, I've also been mentally M.I.A. from school. It's my senior year in high school and "senioritis" has kicked in full force. I mean, I've never exactly liked school (I believe "loathe" is a better word) but I need motivation and mine is absolutely shot. It's in the negatives. Not to be a downer, but I have to be honest with you guys right? And I can't let my motivation, or lack thereof, stay at this level at this point in the year. College is right around the corner, which is simultaneously bringing me down and giving me something to look forward to. I have to get there.

SO, what I'm hoping you'll take away from all of this incessant babble is that I needs me some motivation! I need something to move me more than reading 'get up off your lazy a** and blog' articles on IFB.
What motivates you? What makes you feel happier? Satisfied? Active? What makes you stop procrastinating? What should I do?

  1. Aww, getting discouraged is something that happens to even the best of bloggers, I think. Just keep at it, is my best advice! Remember, it's just a fun hobby and don't take yourself too seriously!


  2. blogging makes me happy. Feedback and positivty helps push me and motivate me. And the looming winter months, though, are setting me up to be in the exact same mentality. We should get coffee (STILL!) and motivate each other :D

  3. I would say take walk for fresh air when you feel down and also learn/appericiate changes:)

  4. Taking time out to do things I love, that has nothing to do at all with technology. Sounds a little strange but sometimes I think we are over saturated with technology and sometimes just need to get OUTSIDE and appreciate natural things. That is where we get our inspiration from anything - things we observe (not on a screen)
