Not Feeling Inspired

I don’t know what it is, but lately I feel like all I do on my blog is:

  1. Complain
  2. Talk about teaching

I get that school just started and that it’s been a rocky ride. I can cut myself some slack I guess. Whenever I think to write about anything else, I draw a blank.

I’ve had ideas during the day, not written them down and then… Forgot.

Or I’ve started writing, finished posted and then felt it wasn’t really good work.

And this post is pretty much complaining about writer’s block too.

I think, I don’t feel like I am accomplishing anything. In many areas of my life. The rough weeks are getting better in some places and getting worse in others.

It’s like… There’s just not enough time. I’d like to do X, Y, and Z but I need to do A,B, and C. I can’t seem to mix them all together. I can’t seem to get through one or the other.

I’m very tired too. It’s been awhile since I’ve tried to be so active. I ache at the end of the day. It’s wearing me down.

Lots of things are wearing me down.

Lots of things are happening because people “feel I should,” and technically they are right. I should. I should be able to play the piano, I should be able to write a curriculum from scratch, I should be able to keep house etc, I should be able to make the kids respect me, I should, should, should.

Bah! Bah! I’m done.

    Bleurgh I know that feeling well! I think we all go through it – I think sometimes the trick is to give yourself a break and decide that you won’t do anything (that isn’t urgent!) for a week or two. Sometimes all the plans and posts and projects I have in mind get on top of me and I don’t feel like starting on anything, but just a few days’ break can clear my mind get me back on board. Good luck!
