The last few days have been beautiful. The sun has been shining, plants have been growing so quickly and everything feels so new! That has been something I have been craving too, a new start, changing things up and getting out of my comfort zone!
But let’s be honest most of the time that isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I know that has been something I have been struggling with the last 2 to 3 years, to keep up that motivation and to truly make a change for the better.
When we are in this motivated zone, we feel like everything is possible, that when we wake up tomorrow everything will be different. But then I wake up and the motivation to even do something as simple as a 5 minute task is gone. I tell myself I will do it when I feel motivated and guess what, that never comes. I am two years further now and the goals, the dreams I had back then are still the same right now. Not a lot has changed because I have been looking for that motivation to start, which I haven’t truly found yet.
I have realized that motivation most of the times doesn’t come out of no where. Motivation comes from seeing result, feeling what taking action does with you as a person. Motivation isn’t created by the mind, but by how things feel and you can only know how it feels if you have experienced it. You can plan your life for 2 years, but if you don’t take action things won’t change.
Now that I have a 2 week break from school I have made a promise to myself to create a balance between pushing myself to do things and doing things intuitively. I am only a few days in and I feel so much better already.
Even though I am really just at the beginning of this journey to become my old motivated self again, I am trying to celebrate these small changes I am making, because those little celebrations create motivation! Which is what I am looking for most in my life at the moment.
