Uninspired

I woke up this morning feeling rather uninspired.

No matter how fulfilled I might be, these feelings always seem inevitable.

Instead of beating my head against the wall, my first instinct is to find out why.

Why do I feel uninspired? Which piece of the puzzle is missing?

More often than not, I find myself losing inspiration when I go on autopilot. I've learned there is a very fine line between creating a productive routine and getting stuck in a rut.

If you ask me, there is one major difference between the two:

A routine has a purpose or goal and a rut doesn't.

With a routine comes forward motion, small steps that add up to big progress. On the other hand, a rut is simply a routine without a point.

It seems as if I need to refocus my goals and remind myself why I am doing what I'm doing.

I don't need to solve everything right away.

I'm just trying to find a little of the inspiration I lost along the way.
