It's funny how inspiration can strike in the strangest of places.
I've been feeling kinda blah the past few days. Something about a sick kiddo, and a busy weekend, and not getting enough sunlight, I guess. Still functional, just not . . . excited about life. It's no secret that I struggle with motivation all the time, but these past few days have been even worse.
Then, I read this article. I processed it. Took it to heart.
And got up and started working on things.
The thing that struck a chord with me was the idea that what you are means nothing, unless you can create something that shows it. You are a thoughtful and kind person? Show it. Call someone, just to see how they are doing. Buy a latte for the guy behind you at the coffee shop. Do something. Anything. But prove what you are by what you do.
Disagree? Think about your five favorite people in the world. What makes them so special? Dollars to donuts, they do something for you. Even if it's just reaching out to you when you need it.
Want to be happy? Want people to like you? Do something. Want to like yourself? Do something.
It's so simple, when you think about it.
