We all know, for the most part, where we’d like to be in life. What we’d like to be doing. Goals. Dreams. Ambitions. Having the end product visualized is the easy part…putting in the hard yards in between is the true test. I hope that you can realize and tap into your own inner strength today…it’s waiting for you. 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.
This message is just as relevant on a Monday as it is any other day. I thought I’d share today, well because…it’s Monday. Let’s face it, we all need a few uplifting words today. Let’s keep our eyes open, and our spirits awake. Good luck today! Best of days to all.
