Topical Tuesday: What’s Focus?

Jaluna 0

I know it’s been a week, and I apologize for the delay! Today, I’d like to talk about something that’s been on my mind a lot lately… My short attention span.

I don’t know when it started. My attention span was never great, but it’s been getting worse lately. I have a wide range of interests may be part of the problem- I keep jumping from writing to forums to game development to watching a variety of youtubers to- well, you get the picture.

Lately, I just feel like I’m out of control. I’ve stopped using my habit trackers for a while now and know I need to go back to it, but restarting is a difficult step. And you know what else is hard? Motivating myself when I can’t keep track of my mind.

I have a basket of laundry that has literally been waiting weeks for me to fold it. I haven’t written in my gratitude journal in months, probably. My bullet journal has been reduced to just a pretty notebook sitting in my travel wallet (yes, it fit in there). I have no drive, no full interest or attention to anything.

Does anyone out there know what’s wrong with me? Can someone tell me why everything feels lackluster and I can’t keep myself working on a project more than a few minutes before something else comes to mind that I want to do? Why do I feel like everything yet nothing is worth anything? I know some of this is probably depression… But I don’t know what to do about it.

So, I ask you, my readers… What advice can you share? Give me all your ideas, your experiences. Have you been here? What helped you? I need all the help I can get… So please don’t hold back, okay?
