Again/self motivated

Why is it so easy to motivate and stay positive for others but not yourself?

I was having a conversation with a cowoker the other day and he was telling me he was an artist and writes his own music and other stuff; I was encouraging him to share his work, come to an open mic and put himself out there. We ended up having a really indepth conversation about life and reality versus our dreams, he told me at the end of the conversation that I really inspired him to put himself out there. I felt so good after that conversation that I went home and began to throw myself into my own work. Now I sit here and I contemplate why it took me motivating someone else to be motivated myself. I mean why can’t I give myself the same peptalk when I’m having writers block or a lack of self discipline.

I suppose that’s the way our brain, well my brain works.. It’s not until I’m scrolling through tumblr and looking at hot girls that I remember I have a gym membership. It’s not until I read something someone else has written that I am inspired, or its not until I help someone see their potential that I remind myself of mine. Are you self sufficient, self motivated? My first thought is yes of course, but then again am I really; are you really? It’s not bad, it doesn’t have to be at least, there are plenty of things in life to motivate and inspire you when you don’t have the energy to do it yourself. My concern would be becoming dependent on it… I want an equal balance, I want to be inspired and I want to inspire myself.

Again/Sister

This Thanksgiving I am extremely grateful for my two younger sisters. They are growing into such beautiful young women and I couldn’t be prouder. I always say it’s one thing to have people look down on you, but it’s a whole different story when you have people looking up to you ♡ they’ll never know how much they inspire me to be better.

The youngest now standing at 5’3 and 13 years old. She’s most like me in some ways and opposite in others. Were both a little awakard, we laugh at ourselves and love to make those around us happy. This young women has talent and heart and I can’t wait to see the amazing women she continues to grow into.

This one here is 15 going on 23! My oh my how beautiful she has become, the Universe has definitely shown favor. She very much so lives in the new age generation and while I don’t mind the fashion tips I try my best to keep her grounded. She has a HUGE heart and wants the best for everyone; she really is a peace keeper and the universe needs more of her kind.
