Motivation on Vacation

My motivation has taken a (hopefully not permanent) vacation. Saturday drove to Raleigh & back (6 hours round trip) to pick up a rear driver's side window from a '73. Sunday Tommy & Paul were meeting up with us around noon to finish up the front bondo work, put in windows & do the wiring. But for second weekend in a row we were completely ditched. So Trey & I did what we could & went home. We were really looking forward to finishing up these two things because after this we won't really need to rely on other people... But even relying on a few things has proven to be a BIG MISTAKE. Apparently people are untrustworthy. Even if they appear to be very excited about a project. So, my motivation has taken a nose dive straight in to the ground. Its going to be hard to do the rest of this on our own... Deep down I know we can do it. But I just have to find my motivation now. I had so much of it and it all went away so quickly. After laying in bed since 4pm yesterday it was even hard to get out for work at 7:30 this morning... Part of me wants to box it up & sell it, labeled as another dead dream. Sorry for such a downer post... It's hardly a portion of how I am feeling. I could paint a picture with a pen, cause a song would only scratch the skin...

  1. Sorry to read about the let down Laura! It is a drag to realize you can't count on people you thought you could. It can be a blessing in disguise though. Don't let it beat you, rage against it and kick it's butt! You can do anything you were going to rely on them for, it might take you longer and be more effort, but you will get it and it will build you skill set. Every little bit you learn gives you an advantage in this mobile life! If you have questions you need help with, email me and I will do what I can.

    The goal is worth the effort, hang in there! Hope your day gets much better from here on!
