What keeps you going and motivated? Do you wake up rearing to go?
When I was younger and starting my working career I woke up feeling energized by the possibilities. I had a smile on my face and a spring in my step. I thought I would find a wonderful career, one that engaged me, challenged me, one where I enjoyed what I did and I would be happy with the job I was doing and the money I was making.
Along with the career I would have a wonderful husband. A man that did not criticize or judge me but instead encouraged and was there to listen. He is strong but gentle and you enjoy spending time together but can enjoy separate interests.
A dream…I never found that career or husband. I am still searching for both. I do not know how to find either one and I have lost that spring in my step. Of course I am not that young or naive any more.
I do know that I will keep going, searching. And I do know that I want to stay engaged in this world to continue the journey because you never know if this will be the day that reveals what you have been searching for. It is much better to look up, take a deep breath, look ahead and not delve on what I do not have.
Waking up I am still hopeful that I will be able to find a way to make money that engages my mind, body and spirit. And I am grateful for another day, perhaps this will be the day that will bring me a little closer to the life I want.
What do you do to stay motivated? What brings a spring to your step?
