The 8th of January and who has started their new diet, workout regime, housekeeping change or other resolution? Who needs Motivation? We all need motivation from time to time. Whether you started something new after New Years or as I did chose to wait till January 10th, we all need motivation at some point in our lives. Why am I waiting until January 10th? Well tomorrow is my birthday and I like to celebrate :-).
Some of us suffer for other reasons and might need motivation to get out of bed some days, get groceries, feed the kids or simply to answer the phone.
Motivation can come in many ways, from several sources or from within. Sometimes our Motivation comes from simply not caring what others think. Constantly worrying about what other people think can bring us down. Put yourself first…NOW!!
Often my motivation comes from my Dog Cashmere. Our pets provide us with that unconditional love we all need. Cash wakes me up each morning with kisses and a wagging tail, that is enough to have me smiling and ready to face the day.
Perhaps the timing simply isn’t right. You might have the motivation you need but there are other barriers that are out of your control. In that case, you have recognized it and need to throw a little humour at it….
Lastly, rely on those around you, the friends, family and co-workers who have your back, who are there to listen or just to keep you company if you need it. Always remember that we all look better with a smile rather than a frown.
