For the first time in a LONG time, I’m running out of gas…

Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers

Shell LogoEvery morning I usually get up and look forward to writing my A/M. blog post. It's a daily ritual that I have been doing for over ten months now, without a single omission.

I had set a lofty  goal for myself in 2008 which I was able to achieve, although just barely. But it was that goal that drove me to relentlessly adhere to my self-imposed regimen.

Now, I am a bit deflated. The drive is just not there. I know that I still have a lot of things to say but they're just not bubbling up to the surface as they did in the past. Perhaps, like some athletes, I spent too much effort too fast and have just burnt out.

Most would suggest that I should take a break.

But the reality is, most breaks are permanent. I have seen many depart from daily activity, never to return to the fray.

I know I'll hang in there, but for the first time, it's getting harder instead of easier. I think I'll reflect a little on the past year, and try to decide how I want to move forward in 2009.

If I know me, it will be something bigger, better and more entertaining!

We all have to regroup and recharge from time to time!  I find that if I don't my body usually does it for me - usually in the form of a cold or ??  It's hard to be full speed all the time!

Richard, you have alluded to this in the past.  You can't leave.  I took a break, too, not because of the holidays, but because I have been so nuts busy that I don't have time to even floss.  Now you know how busy that is!  Well, I'm not complaining...but I can't rain or listen to music which keeps me somewhat sane.  I know that's a stretch. LOL. 

You always have something wonderful to share and your photography keeps me moving.  In a lot of ways.  Hang in there, friend.  And just give us a bit to keep us going.  You are a warm, sane, lovely person in this cold, hard world.  We'd miss you so much.  Stay true to yourself and us.  Happy New Year!

Richard, some days ya feel it and some days (or weeks) you don't.  I know you had a big goal to make all those posts but cut yourself a little slack. Don't but so much pressure on yourself. You don't have to take a break but just don't write if you don't feel like it. It is OK!  BTW, love your posts!

Oh, you know and we know who we are!  On line girlfriends are a lot less maintenance than real ones.  Just imagine what your credit statements would look like!
