I've lost my mojo

Has this ever happened to you?

The Scene:

Me telling all my friends: I want to go on vacation to ___ place and I'm so excited and I can't wait to go and plan things and book my trip.

(Fast forward two months)

Friend: Are you going to New Mexico?
Me: Meh. I dunno. Probably not this year.
Friend: But you were so excited two months ago.
Me: I know. I've lost my mojo.

I don't know why I'm not excited to plan a trip to New Mexico anymore. But it's also this funk in general. I don't really want to travel anywhere right now. I'm content with being in sunny Colorado. I don't want to deal with researching airfare and hotels and everything else that comes along with planning a trip. Not to mention the actual budgeting of said adventure.

Has this ever happened to you when you've been excited to go somewhere and then the longer you wait, the more you change your mind? Should I still go with it and maybe somewhere in the midst of things I'll get excited about it and be happy that I went? Or should I just skip it and wait until I am excited?

This happens to me with a lotta things... Like I was so excited to start cooking vegetarian. And start a scrapbook. And play the guitar everyday. Yknow.

I think if you go, you'll be excited somehow. I guess all the slight complication with researching places to go and stay can make you seem like you lose your mojo but you'll be happy you go :)

Well, I'm not sure what you should do. Just remember, you're the girl who went to Seattle by herself on an impromptu trip and had a blast. You win at travelling/'making it work'.
