Sometimes I inspire someone without knowing it..and then THEY inspire me in return. What a FABulous cycle.
Tonight I read My friend John's Blog - he mentioned that I had inspired him, and yet in his post HE inspired me. and I loved what he wrote..so raw & so honest..here is a little exerpt:
"...its not that i have quit anything, its that i suddenly stopped doing the things i need to do to be successful. my eating and workouts, my finances, my job (am in a job situation where i need to find a new job since people are being let go)...like that U2 song says, 'sometimes we're stuck in a moment we can't get out of'
so i'm tired of feeling this way, not sleeping well to start, had a bout with kidney stones and honestly am kind of not motivated lately. i keep hearing that phrase,
don't wait to get motivated to act on something, but act on something in ORDER to get motivated.and so that is what i am doing. when you're unhappy with your life its hard to write funny, witty and cheerful things day in and day out in a blog - yes my goal was to write that. but that is not very honest. i'm actually not very happy with the current quality of my life, the direction of my job, the condition of my health, the place where i am in my finances, my poor poor sleeping patterns and also my gf has mentioned i've been a bit irritable lately. so to her i apologize. but more so then that. i need to act on my life and take ownership of what i need to do. sometimes i'll make a promise to someone and not always follow through and i realize i tend to do the same to myself."
Way to put it out there John. Way to own your situation, and what you need to do to make it better.
We cant change anything in our lives until we decide that something needs to change. And we start making little choices EVERY day to help ourselves. We have to create the life we want...nobody else will do it for us.
Share your stories people.. put them out there. Be REAL with each other. true inspiration comes from true vulnerability. the human struggle is one shared by every race, gender & age.. When you find moments of motivation and strength never keep silent. You never know who needs to hear your inspiring thoughts.
