I need some inspiration.
I’m feeling stuck in a rut.
In my life and in my writing.
I just feel like every day brings the exact same thing. Which does have a positive side, yes, I know this.
But the negative side is that EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. looks just like the one before and I start getting bored. And when I’m bored, I don’t do things to make myself un-bored. I sink in it. I don’t clean. I don’t plan good dinners. I stay home.
I think this is why I always worked 25-30 hours a week after I had the girls. I just didn’t know what I’d do with myself if I stayed at home with them. Work left me with just enough variety that it kept me on my toes at home also.
And the last month has not been kind. Our oven, dishwasher and dryer have broken. And Lucas has been a sick mess. (Hopefully on the mend now with a dose of antibiotics.)
I need a spark.
Something that will get my head back in the game. (You know, like in High School Musical.)
I’m not sure what that is, but I think it’s around the corner. I feel my heart being pulled back to urban ministry. Maybe it’s that? Or maybe it’s being on my new FAVORITE show Smash. You know, whatever works.
Wanna help? Tell me what gives you a spark in times like this. At least let me live through your spark if I can’t find my own.
(Excuse me now while I pick up the raisins Lucas just poured out of his bowl onto the couch.)
