How do you motivate yourself?

::sigh:: This is a hard one because I can rarely motivate myself. At least here at home. Work is different. The thought of making sure someone is happy with the job I have done is my motivation at work.

Here at home, I just can’t seem to get myself going. I try the “5 second rule” that someone here on PB told me about (sorry! I don’t remember who it was.) and yes, it works, but can my brain accept it? Nope. Habits are hard to break, yanno?

Seems like the only time I’m “motivated” to do anything here at home is when I’m manic, and usually whatever it is I’m motivated to do is silly and not productive at all.

And now, I think I may write a very boring “what’s going on in my life” entry.

5 second rule? That'd be me! /raises hand. I use it a lot to get moving on things when I need an extra kick.

Yay! It was you! lol I need to put a note, or a recording of "remember the 5 second rule" somewhere lol

My son also only when he's manic.

I love being manic for the most part. Except the shopping thing. But I do that when I'm depressed, too lol

I find it hard to find any motivation at all these days
