    The cure is within.........each has to find their own solution.......I found mine.......easy when you know what to block out.

    Your not wrong Gormo, I have learned that there is a switch inside my head that only I can flick on. It's just that sometimes it takes a bit of finding!

    Yes, I had started this a while back ( http://platform1mrc.com/p1mrc/index.php?threads/mojo-gone.3438/ ) and what did I do to pull myself out of it ??

    I spent a day out at an open house with the NMRA, going out photographing trains etc, But the critical thing was to just stop. Walk away for a while, debug yourself from any modelling whatsoever. Give yourself time to clear the mind and when the time comes, you can start off with a clear head.

    The festive season also takes a toll on us as well with all the extra bits to do, jobs added to the list by SWMBO and more. It puts a lot of pressure on us to and leaves no time for anything else, like our hobby. A new year is just around the corner so I suggest to you to rest up, turn a blind eye to the modelling for a few days and I guarantee the bug will bite you back soon, that is the modelling bug of course !

    I must admit I have two things on the go right now, one is the O gauge plank (I should really call that the 'YUTOO' plank, where the plank has no name...!) and my HO scale North American layout. Now Toto has thrown in another competition !! :faint:So, I need to prioritise my time before I burn out due to the fact I don't know which I should attend to first...

    Now, where was I, what was I doing, how did I get here...?? :scratchchin::avatar::avatar:

    Cheers, Gary.

    Let me tell you how it works ......... you are at rock bottom, just can't be bothered, the very sight of a tool makes your blood cuddle. You now hate trains ..... you can't even be bothered with the forum ...... why do I switch the bloody thing on ....... but ...... you do. Then ....... out of nowhere ...... you open a totally random thread and bang ........ someone has just said something that re-lights the fire in your belly ...... and you are off again ..... for the next stretch. .... then .... you hit rock bottom ........

    You've only lost the mojo on modelling, I'v lost it on me stamps and coins as well, not to mention the birding in the miserable weather we have been having.

    Sometimes it takes drastic measures to snap out of it.!!
    Try walking out your back door........have a look around..:scratchchin:......smack yourself in the mouth..........jump in the air and rotate 180 degrees and then walk back inside.
    It`s a reality check that works for me......sometimes.??????:faint:

    Churchill said a man needs three hobbies. Have you tried bricklaying?

    Seriously, though SAD can be a problem. I agree with Gormo, get outside and go for a walk when the weather is less rubbish. Take a break from chores and painting. Buy a arduino and go really nuts (i mean that in a mental health sense). There is no mojo fairy, sadly. Take it slowly, make a plan, and keep it small. Engage in something that is meaningful to you.
