Well, not entirely lost. But definitely feeling that a lot of it went to things that I’m not sure were worth the time.
I find I’ve been doing that a lot, lately, and I’m not actually sure what to do about it. It makes me unhappy, but the problem isn’t just “I’m not focussing on anything”, it’s “I don’t want to focus on anything”. Almost the antithesis of time management; usually I think of that as making sure you have time to do things, and this is wanting to make sure I had things to do during time.
I don’t like this feeling, in case it wasn’t clear. It’s been on my mind rather since Thursday, when the light of my life and I went by the gym, and their printer/fax wasn’t working, and him being him I proceeded to sit there and talk to one of the trainers while he poked the wireless network and the phone jacks and similar. And I remember her asking either “what inspires you?” or “what motivates you?” and I didn’t have an answer. She was asking specifically in the context of working out, mind, but I can’t find an answer at all.
At work, sometimes, I remind myself that I am being a responsible person who is helping to support her household. That’s about it. I can’t think of anything else.
I’m going to sleep on this (again; as I said, been on my mind since Thursday), and hopefully I will realize there is a reason to be feeling a little less disquiet than I am.
