Its been a rough couple of years. Its been maybe five years since I felt like I was really moving forward in my life. I've been lacking in motivation to do much of anything. There have been sputters here and there where I've had energy and drive, and those were encouraging. But they've been far too infrequent. I'm sure there are quite a few people out there that can I identify. I won't let this rut get the better of me.
This is exactly the sort of life situation that makes me most uncomfortable. The stagnation makes maintaining my mood difficult. I often fear that the despair will get the better of me before I make it out. But I haven't given up hope yet. I'm sure I can make it. I know I will. And if I can get through this, I know I can handle whatever life throws at me.
