Focus…… that’s the word I was looking for.
I think we all have those periods where nothing seems to go well. I know that I do. I get into this funk where a lack of energy, enthusiasm and………..focus, take over my body. I can’t concentrate or get anything done. I go from project to project finding shiny things and effectively accomplishing nothing. Kind of like this paragraph if you think about it.
Okay, I need to regroup, refocus and Reba Macintyre. Well, that last one didn’t make any sense at all, but I can’t stop now, I’m on a roll. It’s mental, no really, it’s all in the mind.
Sometimes you just have to keep moving forward, take baby steps, get something, anything done.
It’s like running up a hill. Lean forward, take small steps, breathe, and eventually it will end. If you’re a runner then you know the feeling.
I love hills. You feel so good at the top. (Well, maybe a few minutes later.) My point is, that after a big hill the rest of the run just seems easier.
It’s like that for these mental funks too. Life goes on and before you know it, just like the top of the hill, everything is good again.
I guess that the older you get, the more you realize that shit’s gonna happen. Some days are just going to suck a little bit more than others and there’s not a lot you can do about it.
Just hang in there and things will get better. They always do. Before you know it you’ll be on top of your game and you can pick on somebody who’s not.
I like to think that you come out of these mental funks just a little bit stronger.
Or maybe you just turn into a bitter, crusty old guy.
What do I know?
