Sometimes it can be really hard, to find the motivation,
To proceed as planned, and thus defeat procrastination,
I’m quite a driven person, but I have my struggles too,
Times I wish I could wave a wand, and didn’t have to move.
The problem is, this means we’re simply squandering our gifts,
Our time here is something, sadly, some were not blessed with,
Make each moment count my friends, find a way, you can,
Our biggest hurdle is ourself, so make good on your plans.

This week, I’ve found myself against the clock to develop a creative offering, for you beautiful souls out there, for whom I have so much love. I could hear my brain trying to justify me having an unscheduled break from writing and posting, but as I considered it, I realised that I could make the time, I was merely lacking the motivation.
Instead of continuing to search for excuses, and feel somehow sorry for myself, I began thinking about just how blessed I really am… I mean, I have my health; I have a roof over my head; I have food in the cupboards of my warm abode, and the means to prepare it; I am surrounded by love; I have my faculties; I have somewhere to rest when I’m done for the day, etc.
Then I got to thinking about the people who’ve overcome immense obstacles, to achieve things we often take for granted; and other inspirational people that are differently abled, who mustered the courage, strength and belief needed to eventually become one of the best in their chosen pursuit, occasionally, breaking World Records along the way.
So, really and truly, what excuses can I give? How can I justify doing considerably less than those who have steeper odds than me!? I guess it’s only right that I crank those cogs, and keep moving forward.
Love and Respect always,
