Mrs F Looks Toward The Future

Feeling a bit similar, how long can I really still blame the weather for my funk and general lack of spirit?

I've almost convinced my husband to travel to Mt. Rushmore for a mini vacation this summer - might even make it there for July 3 fireworks - it's also a way to scope out Madison WI as a future home (because I guess MI winters aren't long enough for me).

I have been feeling so similar, too. I have not blogged in weeks because I just don't feel particularly passionate about anything, too. I have been feeling disconnected and a bit lonely in my little world. I don't know if it is winter or what. Probably a combination of everything.

I didn't even think of it as an actual vision thing, but I have been saying to myself that I have to put it down on paper the things I want in life (and I don't mean "stuff.") I was going to blog about that when I did it.

It is usually around this time of year that I start planning for summer. That usually takes up a lot of time on the web and gives me something to look forward to. We never do anything extravagent, but it is fun to plan a few mini-trips. But because of the financial climate--our own and the world's--I just don't feel like we can spend any money on something like that.

Okay, perhaps I should get on my blog and do some writing as I have so much more talk about. I just don't feel like writing all negative, downer stuff and I am sick of trying to put on the rah-rah show and then not following through.

Good luck to you, Mrs. F. We'll get through this:)

Shoot, I was hoping to get a peak at BABY RED. :)


Anyway, I understand the disconnect with your life. I had it too. Mine was basicly because I was a SAHM for so long & then BAM...everyone was gone to school all day. For 3-4 years after they were in school all day I volunteered about 3-4 days a week in the school. Then I started subbing for the paraprofessionals (classroom helpers). I did that for2 years. Just going through the motions.


I had no goals for myself (except the obvious...a healthy happy family). No passion for anything.

The only time I ever felt ALIVE was when I worked out. I also love helping others. My sister actually suggested I get certified as a personal trainer. It never even occured to me to follow my passion until that day.

So, here I am almost 2 years later. I've met some great women & I never realized just HOW MUCH supporting & helping other women with their goals would fulfill my own life. It's so rewarding.

I hope you find something that drives you daily. YOUR PASSION.

I love the vision board idea. Good luck to you! :)

(sorry for the novel...just wanted you to know you aren't alone in your feelings) :)

Must be something in the air. I've been feeling like I am just going through the motions as well. Kind of like, "is this it?"

I was just telling HLH last week that I was thinking about doing a vision board. I just can't figure out where to put it becuase it's kind of private, you know?

P/F,
Ah we looked at moving to Madison. Still would if the chance came up again.


Julie,
please blog about it :)


Staci,
Thanks for sharing your story. I really do want to find that thing that I find inspirational all the time.


Robin,
I'm just going to use the bulletin board by my desk. I want it to be in a place that I'll see all the time. I'm trying to get Mr F to one... that'll never happen though.

Heather said...

I'm doing one too. I'm going to bring it into the office and sit it out of sight (so only I can see it).

This reminds me of something I heard someone say about worrying -- that it's basically praying for the worst to happen by sending all that negative energy out into the world. A vision board seems like a positive way to combat that -- a source of positive energy. Love it. Might have to direct my craftiness towards one of my own...

Feeling lost...check. Overwhelmed w/ stuff I should be doing, but no drive to do anything...check. Getting quite depressed over winter and ready for summer...check. I've been feeling really "on edge" and short-tempered, but can't quite figure out why..have a hundred "things" to do (clean house, laundry, etc..) but no real drive to do anything. Kinda just feel like I'm "existing" right now. I think its the "winter blues" over here, and I CANNOT WAIT for summer...just to go to the park for a few hours, enjoy the sun, play in the sprinkler, let the kids run around and play rather than being cooped up.
