I really needed to be reminded of this message today (I mean I really needed to hear it); I hope that you can find some value in it as well. Take a moment to read and absorb the words (oh, it won’t take long)…if so, thank you for reading! Let’s put in the leg work and go after those dreams and goals. Today is the best day to start/continue. Be well, and Stay Creative.
Sometimes I ask myself, “why do I write”? I think the answer is different for everyone. We all do a great many things in life to satisfy the needs of others, often with a complete disregard for ourselves. It happens. We should remember to also shower ourselves with that same attention. It starts here. Inside of you. Whatever creative pursuit that you embark upon, do it for YOU first…don’t do it to suit the needs of someone else. Don’t tailor it to match someone else’s vision. Don’t do it for page views and likes. Do your thing, and give it the attention that it deserves. Throw all that doubt to the wind. Stay creative.
We live in a society that glorifies wealth of the material sort. It’s ingrained in the culture and broadcast in a variety of media, and it invariably flickers like a beacon in our subconcious minds. It’s quite subliminal. But wealth comes in many, many forms; true wealth doesn’t shine like a freshly waxed Lambo, or a newly minted Bulgari timepiece. True wealth comes from inside. Stay well, friends.
Excellence. The potential to accomplish great things and grand possibilities; that gift resides in all of us. Yesterday, today, tomorrow…it's there. Will we recognize it? That responsibility is ours.
We've all got that little bit of extra push left in us after we think that we've spent our last drop of energy. We owe it to ourselves to dig deep and grind on when the going gets rough. We owe it to ourselves, and we owe it to our dreams. Don't let them down! They want to materialize just as much as we want them to. Let's give them the room to do so. Keep pushing even when you feel like you can't move another inch forward.
