Ever had the day you need to hit the ‘refresh’ button? Talk to someone with a different perspective, someone who motivates you and what you do?
It’s a rainy day today. The skies are grey. I have ‘meeting men’ parental pressures (despite being hitched), and ‘I want a real job’ money pressures. I have a speech to present in two days, and a wedding reception to host in a week and a half. I just got braces and I’m living on liquids. And I’m scraping the barrels to find a ray of hope that things are going to get better.
I like to call Mondays ‘Motivation Mondays’ because I always feel focused and excited about the week. But I get the Tuesday blahs. Actually, Tuesday blahs, Wednesday la-la-las, Thursday jitters and Friday freakouts.
Part of it must involve writing (or not writing) down my plan of action. But another part must be cocooning myself into Gaga’s egg and struggling to push myself through the gelatin. Today, I’m looking for inspiration. Not those inspirational quotes people tweet and retweet - they don’t speak to me. I’m talking about getting to the core of inspiration and motivation, seeing what future potential holds and grabbing it. I’m looking for positivity and a role model. Someone who when you sit with them, you feel your head clearing and a truthful understanding about potential.
Right now, I’m sitting in front of a computer, a book beside me, writing a speech. And I can tell you right now, if I was focused at this moment, I wouldn’t be blogging.
