Being the kind of person that never accepts defeat, I am having a tough time accepting that this week is starting off like “guy, there is nothing you can do”. All the message my body and mind is saying is, go back to bed and feel sorry for yourself. I understand that there are dreams and they will not be done by a sleeping man so here is the bit I can share with you all today.
There is always that one step you can take, even when you feel so terrible and everything just seems to be falling out of place. I honestly wanted to skip #MotivationMonday like I skipped #FictionSaturday and my Wednesday book review. The whole of last week was filled with work on my writing website and I got my hubspot certification in content creation and marketing.
After looking back on what I did last week, I know I have not done bad. I even launched a Magazine with close to 1000 downloads. Yet there is this nagging feeling that I am not yet where I want to be, I feel like hurrying through this stage and arriving at my destination. This impatience is what has made me to lose my joy, instead of enjoying the moments and appreciating what I have been able to do so far, I keep feeling bad about what I have not been able to do.
I don’t have the perfect answers to this feeling but the best I can do is to let you all know there is someone going through what you are facing. Maybe you have done your best as a father but you still can’t pay the bills or you have written business proposals and made a lot of attempts to achieve your goals in life. I want you to know that you are not alone, you are not a failure. Don’t let these time make you lose sight of the good things you have been able to achieve. Sit back for a second and appreciate what you have done right. That is one more thing you can do, its a good way to bounce back and I know its working for me.
PS: I appreciate my Facebook friend Saddam Nihor who let me know he had been reading my Monday posts, it went a long way to bring me on here today.
