Lately, I've been very unmotivated. There are about a million things I could be doing besides my normal chores. Organization, deep cleaning, thank-yous to write, projects to finish (and start!), journaling to catch up on... but instead, I've done the bare minimum of keeping the house looking nice, the kids occupied, and food on the table. It's not that I've been feeling down or depressed in some way; just unmotivated and tired, left without the desire to fill the day as productively as possible. I've noticed this in other things too, such as my reading. I love to read, and I need to read-- especially the Scriptures, of course. I've not been as diligent in that lately either. I have no excuse, it is my own fault. This unmotivation in some of the very vital parts of my life might be due to a number of things-- not really having a chance to recover from the crazy holidays, being overwhelmed by having so many things to do all of a sudden, not getting enough sleep, or (and this is a tough one to swallow sometimes) my own sinfulness.
"And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ." ~Colossians 3:23-24
