Monday Motivation – Tuesday Edition – Be Tough!

I have noticed that over the past few weeks I have gotten a bit whiny. I have been sad and feeling frustrated and I have done nothing but complain rather than taking action to remedy the situation.

That is not like me. I tend to be a positive person who believes in just doing your best and feeling good about that. These past few weeks though I have been very negative and I most certainly have not done my best.

So this week I have to either accept my situation or change it, no more complaining. My day job is tiring and I don’t have much time for my hobbies but I do some time and I could try a little harder. Admitting this both makes me feel bad and motivates me. I can do this, I can do anything, if only I would just pick myself up, dust myself off, and get my ass in gear.

This week I will put on my thick skin and plow forward. I have been through so much in my life but lately I have been spoiled. Things got easy for a long time and I forgot how to put one foot in front of the other, no matter what. I forgot how to tough shit out. I forgot that it’s never as bad as it seems and that it will always get better.

Just like good times often slip into bad, bad times will always slip back into good. The trick is to stay tough during the bad, that way when the good comes around you can fully enjoy it.

    1. Thank you. Things are improving around here but it’s agonizingly slow improvement. Which, I suppose, is better than no improvement at all. At least I know there is light at the end of the tunnel :)

  1. Everyone has down days or weeks. I find that it helps me to talk about it and hopefully understand why I have the feeling that I do. Sometimes it takes a few days to get it sorted out and then start correcting or changing whatever it is.

    You are a positive person so I know things will get better for you soon!

    1. Thank you! I do my best to stay positive but old habit have a way of coming back when your defenses are down. I think my main problem is I haven’t been getting enough sleep which makes everything seem so much worse than it really is. I’h hoping by recognizing the problem and talking it out with my friends I can find a way back :)

        1. Yeah I’m learning that. I am trying to drink more water and I have stopped drinking coffee every day so that has contributed to my crappy feelings. It’ll get better though :)
