Do you ever go through those periods in your life where you just feel like you're treading water? You're not drowning, but you're definitely not swimming. You're just moving your arms and legs...still afloat...but going nowhere.
That's how I feel right now. I'm going through the motions, doing everything I need to, but that feeling of direction is weak. The feelings of improvement and accomplishment--and the prospect of a goal--are really lacking. I'm just treading water. And I'm frustrated. Partly because I've always sucked at treading water. But mostly because I'm trying so hard to stay up (because I really do want to stay up), but I just don't have enough gusto to make myself swim to the next shore.
So I'm going to go ahead and do something that I've never done before. (Mostly because I'm literally processing all of this as I type.) I'm asking for advice.
What do you do when this happens?
