Yes. My life is boring. I don’t have a job. I don’t have kids. My husband isn’t here, so I don’t really cook much. I don’t go out much. I don’t really do anything. And I really hate that. I’m trying to find a part-time job so that I will have a reason to get out of the house. And also keep my sanity! LOL!
I sit here and I think about things I want to do. Dreams I have. But I don’t do anything about them. I feel like I have no motivation. It’s frustrating. I feel like I’m wasting away. I also feel somewhat like a failure. I want to be better for myself and my husband. I want to prepare for our future. I want to become a better wife and someday be an amazing mother.
I just don’t know how to get started. I need motivation. Or I need people to help motivate me. Encourage me. Push me to be better.
What is it you are needing motivation to do?
We all get in this rut. You will spring out of it soon. Look for stuff you like to do such as crafting, learn a new hobbie, or like you said get a part time job at a place you would love to work at.

Go down to the craft store and sign up for a class. Go to the local community college and see if there’s a course you can take. Volunteer at the library doing story hour for little kids.
There are all kinds of things you can do to get out of the house, learn something new, and generally feel better about yourself. If you are having trouble getting motivated, just fake it til you make it. Force yourself to get out there and you’ll soon find a reason to go.
Have you thought about volunteering somewhere? Just to get out of the house and get out there. I have a lot of friends with no kids or jobs like you who love to volunteer during deployment plus it adds as experience on their resume.

I am looking for something to do. A job or volunteering. But this week is mine & my sister’s staycation. We’re doing a TON of stuff! I’m so excited!
