The worst thing that could happen to one's drive is self doubt, and yet it seems that I run into it all the time. I made it through the end of the year without getting mopey about the things I didn't get done but then the first rolled around. I wasn't feeling that great this morning and I am sure that put me in a foul mood.

I then started thinking about how I am in a bit of a rut at work where I have taken on more responsibility so I am very busy all the time and yet I haven't received any compensation for that . Supposedly that compensation is on the way but who knows. I also started thinking about my writing. I know that I have to continue to write, finish things I am working on, and start new ones in order to get better at writing. I also know that I have this perception of working on borrowed time in order to achieve the things  I want to achieve. This definitely makes it hard to get my head in the game and really start writing. I have to keep at it and make sure that I am doing something to better myself and work towards a new beginning.
