They happen a lot. People motivate me in different ways.

The latest one was something as simple as going to work. I have a temporary large office so patients and providers mistake me for a therapist and I have to tell them 'not yet'. It motivates me to get school done so I can get licensed and start doing the things I want to do.

Nothing right now.

When I was in school, my degree was my motivation. When I graduated, getting a career was my motivation. Now, I feel stuck. A degree and career mean nothing when that's your ending point. I've become stagnant and lazy.

I don't like where I am in life right now. I'm not happy...I'm just content and comfortable.

If my intentions were put into action, I'd be the most fulfilled person in the world.

I'm at the point where I feel like I can't even get married until I get my sh*t together. I don't wanna be married and complacent...that would just be a recipe for disaster.

Every night before bed I make a mental note of all the things I'm going to do the next day (outside of work) i.e. volunteer, read, enroll in school. Does it happen? Nope, nope, and nope.

I just work, cook, eat, sleep, lather, rinse, wake up the next day and repeat. I feel like my life is at a standstill and I'm wasting time.

Yep and the fact people assumed the worst for and doubted me ...however, I gotta say my aunt kept encouraging me to keep moving ahead and believed in me and my mom always being so pumped when I accomplished things. 


I can relate to that. I tend to go above and beyond because it makes my mom so proud. She brags all the time on my accolades. It's embarrasing but she eats the attention up so who am I to deny her.

Hmm...i'm inspired by a lot of situations. As a matter of fact, i constantly struggle internally with my will, so i am constantly seeking tips, quotes, advice, anything that can help to motivate me and keep me active.
If i don't feel like I have a purpose, i am completely inactive. The issue is that I for some strange reason, when i have to do something for myself i drag my feet a lot, but when someone else is counting on my actions to help their situation I do it straight away and in detail, with love.

It truly is a viscious cycle for me.
However, a certain family member and I have a lot in common (not in personality traits, just in circumstance) and also a very rocky relationship. This family member happens to be the epitome of what not to be in life, so needless to say, i think about that person a lot as the motivation I need to keep my will up.
