Ever have one of those days when you really, really don't feel motivated? We all do. So, HOW do you stay inspired and motivated? You get a system that works...and practice it.
Life is about learning & growing. We don't just learn about reading & writing - but about ourselves, patience, compassion, trust, understanding & relating to others. If someone or a situation has brought faults of yours to your attention, the greatest fault would be ignoring it, making excuses and not learning to overcome it.
Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. So, when you're ready to give up, just keep in mind that things can only be bad for so long & then if you are persistent, it will turn around.
To become a peaceful warrior is one of the greatest challenges we face in our lives. Everyday life isn't at all like going to battle. However, the battles we face in our personal lives can be just as emotionally trying.
I've always like the song "Amazing Grace". It didn't have the same effect on me when I was a little kid, but as I've grown & walked through so many challenging times in life, the meaning of the song's lyrics become deeper & more meaningful. Even if you're not a fan of operatic music, you'll feel something inside as you watch & listen to this video.
We make goals lists, have resolutions for a new year and ideas for big things we can do in our lives that will make all the difference. We can easily become consumed with the massive changes that would be so impressive or the big issues that seem to take most of our focus & daily energy. But it's the little things in life...
Simply put, there are two kinds of people: Those who make excuses, and those who make it happen. Who do you want to be?
Do you really love your children, spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend? Even though we don't get a paycheck for sharing kindness with those at home, the lasting rewards can be so much more valuable. Today, inspire love, peace & acceptance with those who matter most in your life at home...by sharing your smile.
