Motivational Monday (V.9) : Finding Your Purpose

20140519-124258-45778129.jpg

I came across this quote today while doing my daily scroll of instagram. I absolutely love June Ambrose and aside from the latest trends and her family, she’s always posting motivational tidbits.

This one specifically spoke to me as I am on a journey to figure out exactly what I want to do with life or at least have craft some type of plan. Friday will be a year since I’ve graduated college and I can’t say that I’m where I want to be in life. I mean I didn’t expect to launch right into my career, but at this point I’m not sure exactly what I want my career to be. What I do know is that it will involve writing.

I will do whatever it takes to take my writing career to the next level. I will do whatever it takes find different platforms to share my personal life experiences. I have found my purpose, now it’s time to put the plan into action!

Motivational Monday (V.1): ‘Commitment’

I meant to post this earlier, but I was in a tad bit of a rush this morning. As I sit here at job #2 (babysitting) I have a little bit of time on my hands. My message for today revolves around what the title says, commitment. I’ve been finding a lot of great quotes via instagram and this one stood out to me.

Commitment is that turning point in your life when you seize the moment and convert it into an opportunity to to alter your destiny.

 Denis Waitley

Commitment is something that is essential in life and with the new year in full swing its easy to lose sight of the goals that you set for the new year. It might only last for a month, two, maybe three. How long do you stay committed to eating right? How many times do you keep telling yourself you’ll go to the gym? How many times do you tell your self that you’ll organize a room in your house? The list can go on and on. It all ends up in procrastination and pushing it off for the next day.

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today

Murphy’s Law

What is the point in setting goals when you aren’t going to commit? I am guilty of this a lot and that is one thing I want to work on. When it came to writing this post I was like eh, I don’t feel like it. No one will care, I’ll do it tomorrow. It’s not about someone caring. I don’t care anymore if anyone were to do this. I said I was going to blog every day and admitted to missing one day, but I want to become committed to this. Whatever you put your name on should be done with 100%. Give everything you do your all. It’s time to stop putting in half of your time on something you signed up to do. Even if you’re not happy where you’re at, be it your job, you signed up for that so until you find something new, or make something new, give it your all.

I was thinking about how much I dread Monday mornings and I came across this quote:

Having a rough morning? Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason. Don’t give up.

You might not know what your purpose is, but in due time you will. It’s time to be persistent, stop the procrastination and fully commit to becoming a better you. It’s a daily journey for myself and this blog is helping me embark on that journey. Don’t put yourself in situations that you might want to back out of. If you’re in it be in it. No other way around it.

Until next time…
