Do you write your musings down? Musings that you may expound on later into more than a note.
Below I have seven musings that have been lying around. A general theme runs through them of looking at the brighter side of life. Motivation works to an extent; however, it will not carry you through as discipline will.
Starting points to examine different parts of your life and how you view them. Compared to what society is throwing at you in a daily barrage.
I have been thinking about motivation vs. positivity, which I would rather have on a day to day basis.
Being motivated gets things done: my mission, work, reading, working out.
The thing is when you’re not motivated; it’s hard to get these things done.
End up missing out on the benefits your accomplishments provide.
On the other hand, positivity brightens any day, gives a good look at life, and works toward my overall happiness. Days that I am positive will often lead to better motivation to get things done that I want to accomplish.
Not every day do I knock out a list of things. There are days when being positive leads to a nice relaxing day to recharge. Then when the next morning rolls around, wake up optimistic, be happy you have another day to enjoy.
Work on your mission, quick workout to supercharge your day, knock out the day’s tasks, and as evening approaches, think of everything you accomplished before a good night’s rest.
Take a step
When working toward a goal, the path is very seldom in a straight line. The twists and turns throw you to the side many times, and you wonder if you really should continue.
The doubt slowly creeps in, should you turn back or give up. The biggest question then is why you started in the first place if you would not see it until the end. Take a step, and then another step, see where the path leads.
Surround your self with people that can help you and push you to do more.
Read inspiring and thoughtful things.
Watch motivators and great speakers.
Listen to informational sources.
Glean all the help you can.
Then one day, set it all aside and start doing.
Forging a new you
Everyone starts somewhere, physical, mental, or spiritual. The thing is, for some reason, people do not know what moderation, balance, an practice is. You do not just wake up one morning being the best at anything. It takes time, effort, and will to get there. Magic pills are for fairy tales.
When you get motivated, it only lasts so long; the key to success is continuing to go forward and find more motivation along the way. Many times those closes to you are the ones holding you back. Make your peace with them and keep moving forward.
Look in the mirror, is your outer self taking on the image that your inner self wants. How is the forging of new you going? Is the rough forge done? Maybe you do not need to pound yourself into another shape. You need to clean up what you have and work on the details.
Have you sat and honestly thought out your priorities or let life, work, and outside sources dictate your priorities?
Parents and Guardians do and should do this for children. Teach then one day as they grow older, do this for themselves.
Work usually has some flow chart on how you should get things done in what order. Make a flow chart for your own life.
Living with people, be it family or friends, someone takes the lead and lays out responsibilities, what is most important to get done first.
As you become an adult, take responsibility for yourself. Have you ever honestly sat down and thought what your priorities should be for you.
Not what the rest of the world wants. What you want and what you need to do to get there.
Take a moment, list them out.
At the beginning of each month, review them, make changes if needed.
Over time fewer changes will be made, and you will have a direction to go.
A solid list of priorities to help go through life.
What have you done today
How often do you think of all the things you would like to do, and they go nowhere beyond a passing musing. What questions do you ask of yourself?
Why do we create and just let things go to waste once we started?
Are you that busy?
What is stopping you from doing what you want?
What holds a person back?
Do you have to have mind-blowing articles?
What questions do you ask yourself, and you already know the answers?
When someone asks you what you did today, what will your response be?
I don’t know.
I became stronger.
I accomplished many things at work.
I spent time with my son.
I worked on my writings.
Moments of anger and frustration do no one any good.
Leading to lowering your quality of happiness, and for what? Someone else’s stupidity.
Next time you feel you self-coming to anger.
Close your mouth.
Ask your self is this worth it.
Does this truly matter to me?
More than likely, the situation is more just a blip on your screen of life.
Musing during a Lunting
Some of these musings were during my luntings, like my good friend and fellow scribe Padre does quite often. (Padre’s Lunting) Getting out into nature, doing something physical, allows the mind to work through different musings that are often more chaotic than coherent.
Carry a pen and paper with you. Stop for a moment, and jots notes down of your musings. Writing out your musings will help bring them to life, and you can then decide if they are worth spending more energy on or not—castaway that which is not helpful and embrace that which can help you succeed in life.
