Think Out Loud: Strange Days

This is Think out Loud. It’s a weekly meme created to help bloggers break out from the blogging bubble. The rules are simple. We post whatever we want and let people know what’s in our mind. Visit the creator on Thinks Books and join too. It’s so cool to share your random thoughts.

What’s the thing with these days? You know, the ones where you wake up smiling and happy, but after a while you realize that you don’t want to do anything. It’s like there is a shadow above your head and you just stand there, or look at the PC screen for too long, as if putting your hands on the keyboard seems a hard task.

Two days! Two days I’m feeling like this and I am frustrated. I look at the bold letters that spell Chapter 17 and my mind is idle. Okay, I close that window and then I return back staring at the screen. And now what? I don’t seem to know what to do even if there are tons of things I want to do.

And then I read this quote on Goodreads: “If you love what you do and are willing to do what it takes, it's within your reach. And it'll be worth every minute you spend alone at night, thinking and thinking about what it is you want to design or build. It'll be worth it, I promise.” -Steve Wozniak

And I feel the shadow growing instead of shrinking. Hell, it’s one of those days where happy mood and beautiful thoughts seems to be drowning by sadness and troubles.

Have you felt like this? What do you do to get rid of this feeling? 


  1. I feel exactly like this for the whole of February and even now into March. Well not the part about waking up happy but the not wanting to do anything... Reading isn't even in the horizon but I have priorities to keep up.

    Writing has been on my mind but only a shadow of it. It's not clicking like it used too but I'm okay with it, life has been busy to tackle it.

    I haven't found a solution to this yet so I'm sorry I'm not of use. But good luck.

    1. The whole February! This is too much time. I wish for this feeling to wear off so you can return to writing and other stuff you love. I guess there is not a solution, but just think of something else.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. When I feel this way I have a few rules (I don't always follow), but I never read anything intended to motivate or help me because I usually just argue with it and fall deeper into whatever gray space has a hold of me. I full on waste time. I'll watch youtube videos, not just any but singing contest auditions. I just freaking love those! Or I'll watch movie previews. I'll break out a read that promises to fly by. All I know is that I can't fix a mood with words in my head. I just have to fall into distraction until I can't stand it anymore and I have to get back to work. I hope you ease past this and fall into another torrid romance with your muse!

    1. Thanks Robyn. It helps to do something else. Hopefully my mom and sister are visiting, so I don't have time to think of anything. Taking my mind off stuff is good. :)

      I wish you a beautiful weekend.

  3. I've felt out of it like this all week. I think part of the reason, though, is because I haven't been feeling the greatest. (Not sick, but still health-related). Definitely not fun. :(

    So...I wish I had some awesome advice to share, but I'm still going through the motions, I must admit. (At least I'm able to catch up with the blogosphere today, haha.)

    1. I wish for everything to be okay, Heather. Robyn's advice is good. We have to do things that take our mind off stuff. I hope it helps.
      I missed Nicholas. :)
