There are many things/people in my life who keep me motivated. For instance, my conscience, my memories, family, and the wisdom I gained from listening to others and their experiences and/or knowledge! I guess it’s a mix of things that are motivations tools for me. However besides these things I do have an utmost motivational tool and that is the love that I have for my children.
First of all, my conscience; what I mean by this is the thoughts that I have in my head that include what I learned from my dad and mom, and by going to church and learning the differences of what is wrong and what is right. My mom has taught me kindness, compassion, and basic skills that a mother holds. My dad has taught me about respecting others; stand for what I believe and to strive for the things I want to achieve. Furthermore my mom and dad took me to church when I was a kid and the things it instilled me are most of the morals and values that I accept to help guide my choices in my life.
Secondly, my past experiences and the knowledge that I have gained from others also is one of my motivational tools. For example, I try to learn from my mistakes well I can’t really call them mistakes but more like situations that I wasn’t too fond of but I did learn something from. Also I always like having conversations with older people because they are so smart (actually have a lot of advice and knowledge about life in general and they are good story tellers) and they are right most of the time.
My overall motivation is just to strive for a better life for my kids than what I had. I am not implying that my life as a kid was harsh in anyway because others many others have had it a lot worse but, it’s nothing that I would want my kids to have to experience. Therefore I try to make the best of my days by doing something productive or and meaningful. It is hard a lot of the times because of the obstacles that I have to get through but needless to say I am the cause of those obstacles most of the time so yeah nobody’s perfect. However I do have my heart in the right place and my screws all intact so I think I am doing okay. As long as my kids are taken care of and healthy and I am doing what I have to do then I know the outcome will be good.
I will end this writing with a little wisdom that I hold; and that is to just keep moving on no matter what even if you fall off track find your way back and remember what you wanted for yourself and what got you motivated in the first place until you achieve what it is you are trying to accomplish.
