In case you ever felt like whatever you are doing has no use, you’re not alone. But allow me to remind you why you are making a bigger impact than you might be aware of.
We sometimes do things that make us feel good, but will have others rolling their eyes at us. Thing is though, we don’t live to make others happy. If whatever it is you wish to do doesn’t hurt anyone else, do it. With that said; here are a 10 things that are absolutely okay!
It’s never easy to get up while the rest of the world gets to chill. Which is why I made this list of motivating Instagram accounts. Because a bit of motivation can get you a long way.
It’s a new week and so time for some new motivation to help us get our week started. Here are some quotes for you to inspire your grind! Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it’ll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off. – Kevin Hart I see you grinding, I see your patience, I see your late nights and early mornings. Hard work pays off. – The Universe Welcome to the grind. The battle royal between you, your mind, your body and the devil on your shoulder telling you this is just a waste of time. – Unknown There’s no substitute for hard work – Thomas Edison Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come. – Dwayne Johnson I believe …
There was a time I was working two jobs and instead of resting, I chose meeting my friends and family over sleep. If anyone used the words: “But I haven’t seen you for so long,” or “I need a favor,” I’d put my rest aside and do what I thought had to be done. As a matter of fact, I’d feel guilty when I chose to do what felt good for me.
Sounds familiar? If so, here are 3 reasons why it’s okay to choose for yourself.
It’s Monday, the day that many of us dread. That’s okay. However, that won’t take away that we have to go through Monday. Here are some quotes from inspirational individuals so you can kick ass anyway! Do sharks complain about Monday? No. They’re up early, biting shit, chasing stuff, being scary – reminding everyone they’re a fucking shark. – Unknown Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to get out and kick ass! – Maya Angelou Now, if you know what you’re worth then get out and get what you’re worth! – Sylvester Stallone The most effective way to do it, is to just do it. – Amelia Earhart As long as persevere and endure, we can get anything we want. – Mike Tyson Life’s tough, darling. But so are you. – Stephanie Bennett-Henry Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion – Muhammad Ali I never dreamed of succes, I worked for it- Estee Lauder You have a bad day; you go to bed, you wake up and you work …
On Sunday’s my mother after my mom went to church, we’d cruise around to wherever. Yeah, we would literally just get in the car and drive to certain towns. Admiring the houses, talk about what it’d look like from the inside, look at some poor choices of gardening. But most importantly, it allowed me to dream. Oh, how I would dream. Life didn’t turn out that way, tho. Now, you might think this has me absolutely depressed, because clearly my life isn’t as I had dreamed it would be. But I’m not, at least not anymore. Which is exactly what has me writing this today.
Are you a procrastinator?
Do you wait for tomorrow to fulfill your dreams. Then this one is for you.
This post was inspired by a post I recently read about this 29-year young, ambitious woman who’s full of dreams. Sounds like me, right? The big difference is, she might not make it to see 40.
I’d like to dedicate this piece to my dear friend. She called me last night -we hadn’t talked on the phone or in person for at least 2-3 months- to tell me how much my previous post. This meant a lot, as this is exactly the reason I do this. But then she asked me a question and it was a question I had asked myself many times. How do I keep going when everything is going to shit?
Had she asked me this 4 years ago, I would’ve told her: by surviving.
But now, in 2017, I know how to keep going even when everything seems to fall apart and I want to share it with you.
