Default Starting to lose my drive

I'm starting to feel content. I'm wondering what I'm striving for. It's strange for me to feel this way. Maybe I need a break from all the striving.

Smile Re: Starting to lose my drive

Well... there is a difference, to my mind, between losing one's drive & feeling content. Losing one's drive could be related to depression, loss of energy, loss of focus, intellectual confusion, loss of interest in goals, that sort of thing. Contentment on the other hand, it seems to me, is a generally good thing. It means one is happy with the way things are. Is everything perfect? No not necessarily. But given what's reasonably possible, one is satisfied with the way things are. I suppose there could be times when it's difficult to tell whether it is loss of drive or contentment one is experiencing. Perhaps in those cases it can just take time to sort through what's happening. I hope that, in your case, what you're experiencing is more a case of contentment than it is a loss of drive.
Speak only if you can improve upon the silence.
