No Motivation

I don't get it.  I have been sick for two weeks and now I am finally feeling pretty darn good.  However, I STILL have no motivation!  I don't want to really do anything.  I don't want to clean house, I don't want to work, I don't want to do anything but sleep.  I want to curl up in bed with a good book and just rest. 
It is so much easier when you work for someone else.   At least for me it seems like if I have a manager or employees who depend on me I am more inclined to want to be at work even if I don't feel good.  It is easy to let myself down but not easy for me to let others down. 
So here is the lesson:  I think that even if you don't really feel like doing anything you have to do it anyway.  After having two weeks off I have to just force myself to work and let the habit take over again.  Make yourself get off the couch or out of bed and get to work just like if you were going to work somewhere besides home.  Make yourself do the laundry and wash the dishes even if you don't really want to.  Once you are in the habit of doing these things everyday it will just come naturally.   Anyway that is what I am hoping!

Don't worry Connie, Things will get better. When I'm sick or don't feel good I am the same way. Right now I'm having a hard time motivating myself to take care of all the house chores b/c I'm trying so hard to make my blog successful.

Oh yeah! That definately happens too. I am notorious for focusing on my "job" and forgetting about everything else!
