    I'm in what we southerners call a 'slow spell' and decided I needed motivation. Things in general are on hold in the good old U.S.A. at the moment, so I decided to build a new home.

    What do you do when you need motivation or are bored?

    I always try to stay positive....I try to turn negative situations into learning experiences....I teach visually impaired teens......when I feel depressed I think of their struggles.....after dwelling on that...your problems pale in comparison.....Focusing on what is truly important.......What are those passions? Make the list and use them as a guide......Wishing you the best......BUD

    I usually imagine just how much my situations can be. Remember that my family came from the Depression and lived to tell about it. I also have mentally challenged relatives whom make it day to day doing what we all do not knowing any better, and not complaining as the rest of us do. But sometimes it just gets hard to get up when you're at one of your lowest points. That's when I need friends and family the most!

    If I need motivation to finish something, I just think that it can't go on forever. The sooner I do it, the sooner it is over.
    If I am bored: I would love to be bored. Right now my favorite thing to do would be to sit around the house ALL day, watching TV.

    But really, I try to start things and set goals and a definite time line I need to reach the goals by. Then I reward myself.

    I also do not give myself into temptation if I know the it would be too much. If I need to work on a report or something, I don't go near a personal computer. Instead I go to the library, where I am not tempted to do something devious.
