Why do I constantly feel like I am trying so hard and putting forth all my effort, only to find out each time that I am merely spinning my wheels again, and never actually making noticeable progress on anything?
Sometimes I literally feel like a hamster going around and around on a wheel all day. The faster I run, the more I just keep spinning. No wonder I’m always so tired!
I can even be so determined too, that THIS time is gonna be different, and I really AM gonna make progress today.
Then just like clockwork, as soon as I start feeling like I’ve accomplished something, I stop, look up, and realize that sure enough, once again, another day is gone and apparently I’m the only one who DIDN’T know, that I’ve just been spinning the whole time. Again. 😔
No wonder I have such a hard time motivating myself every day. It’s completely and utterly exhausting! And the worst part is, there never seems to be a pay off. No progress made. No reward for sustained effort.
Staring down again at the same exact to do list, still not completed, and absolutely nothing to show for my determination besides more wasted time. 😏
Well, that and of course, and the inevitable frustration and shame, that I constantly feel for not being able to do what everyone else seems to do just naturally, and with little to no effort at all.
Can anyone else relate? 🤷♀️
And how have you managed to step off the hamster wheel? 🐹
