A Fresh Start Isn’t Always Easy

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.
