Winter Doldrums

Last Update: March 04, 2019

I was reading a post from one of our members today about her being in a slump.

I have been in the same slump. No motivation and no progress forward. I've been feeling guilty about it but not doing anything to address the problem. I can't say that I can attribute my slump to anything in particular. Maybe just the winter doldrums. Who knows? I'm hoping that warmer weather will light a fire under my butt.

I do know that I have been having some trepidation going forward because the training coming up involves social media and I am a complete dinosaur when it comes to that. Or maybe that is just my excuse du jour.

Whatever it is, I need to get control of it and move on. I've been paying my dues every month but haven't been using the platform at all and that goes against my fiscal beliefs.

I think I might start setting some small goals for myself. Maybe daily, maybe weekly and see if that helps. All I know for sure is that I have to get out of this frame of mind and back into the enthusiasm that I had when I first signed up.

I get that a lot lately. The weather and the rain seem to get me down some. We all get in slumps like you are talking about. It rained most all weekend and when I was trying to get out to do some errands, I came down with a stomach virus. And tomorrow I've got to go back to my neurosurgeon who is a 4 1/2 hour drive away. Doesn't seem like I'm getting anything done. But we just have to wait it out and do as much as we can. Take care and it will be over soon.

Hi Nancy, I can totally relate to you. It March and hopefully spring will awaken the need to post and do what is necessary to grow here at WA. I wish you all the best

I feel your pain... BUT!!!
Try Pintrest as your first step. That's what I did, and it was AWESOME!
I was a dinosaur as well, and yet I have found Pintrest to be fairly easy in the end!

Hi Nancy. We know what you mean about social media. We always have to steel ourselves for that training but it is slowly coming together.
Spring is coming!
