A Tinge of Discouragement

I think that I have some limiting beliefs that are keeping me from doing the things that I want to do. I also have some empowering beliefs, but they seem to balance out with the limiting beliefs and create nothing. I'm just feeling rather low today. I'm sure that my recent lack of sleep has something to do with it.

I don't feel that my life is going down hill, but quite frankly, I feel it isn't really going anywhere. I guess I don't know what to do. Sitting here and waiting for things to happen is something that I just cannot do. Yes, I have things to do in the meantime, but that's not enough. I guess I'm just anxious for things to go a certain way, and since they have yet to do so, I feel a bit discouraged. I know I must sound quite vague right now, but I rather not go into details at the moment.

Yeah, I don't know what to do. A lack of energy and motivation aren't the problem - my mind's cluttered with so many differing thoughts and ideas, and it's difficult to sort through them all. I guess that's why I felt the need to discontinue reading for a while - I can't take anymore information. I will take a shower and relax a bit... I've got a lot of mental-cleaning to do.

I can definitely relate. My life is really stagnant right now. I don't know what I want to do with my life, I'm really lonely, etc. For me, a lack of motivation and energy is at least partly to blame, though.

It sucks. I feel that I should be doing something valuable with my time, but I'm not. The things that I feel are valuable hasn't happened yet, so I'm feeling quite agitated right now. *headdesk*

Have you finished reading that book, Conquering Your Quarterlife Crisis: Advice from Twentysomethings Who Have Been There and Survived? If so, did you find it somewhat helpful?

I finished it a couple of months ago. It was a decent book, but I don't feel like I got much advice that I didn't already know. It had a few good tips though, and it was nice to know that "you're not alone." Honestly, I could probably mail it to you if you want.

I recently bought another book, called How to Survive the Real World: Life After College Graduation: Advice from 774 Graduates Who Did (Hundreds of Heads Survival Guides). I'll let you know how that one goes.

have you ever heard of vipassana? it's a free ten day meditation course... really helped me sort out my thoughts.
best of luck.

No, I haven't heard of that before, but thanks to Google, I'm definitely interested.
Thanks, hun!

it's OK to have a lull in the activity to decide and plan! no pressure. xoxox

Yeah, that helps. :)

I don't really know what to say, but I just thought I'd let you know that I have read your post and I'm still here.
I hope things start to get better SOON.

Thanks, hun♥

Maybe you're overworking your mind, it seems that nothing is happening? Just a thought..(another one? LOL)
Maybe try getting rid of some of those thoughts..if it includes doing something, maybe making it happen while bring some relief...to me it sounds you're thinking too hard, but nothing is happening...can totally relate to that..

Yep, I do have that tendency to think too hard from time to time. :P lol

Your only concern is feeling good. There is no action required, unless that action feels good to do. By getting all antsy and worrying about "How" you are, in effect, telling the Universe you can take care of it on your own without any help from the Source of all supply. So just choose to feel good. Choose action that feels good to do, even if it does not seem to further your goals. You've already asked for what you want. Your request is in the process of being answered, so now all you have to do is relax, have fun, and allow.

Why, thank you. :-)
