Every Day Again

by Emily (follow)
life (68)     
Today I am tired. Like many people, I have a bit of a winter flu. I have taken on a few new projects at work and am under the pump. I am a bit behind on sleep. On days like these, itís harder to feel that life is beautiful and much easier to look at the ground and wait for enough time to pass until I can go to bed again.

"Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence" by BK


I thought about this on my lunch break, weaving my way through the crowded Melbourne laneways, coat wrapped tightly around me.

I thought about this when I glanced at my desk calendar Ė one of those ones that sits placidly beside the computer and pencil jar, announcing the date in a bold number, a new page torn off every day.

I thought about this on my way home, eyes on the tram floor, just one of thirty strangers engrossed in their own lives.

Some days are harder than others. There is no answer to this Ė no quick-fix, no wise words that can transport us from a mediocre mood to a fantastic one. This reminds us that motivation and inspiration are not one-off deals, but lifelong projects. Living an inspired life takes practice, courage and above all persistence. Just as we must frequently feed our bodies so too must we continually surround ourselves with that which brings us love and joy.

"Joy of First Rain" by Yogendra Joshi


Having a bad day does not mean that you have lost your motivation - it is just a natural part of the ebb and flow of our energy. So every single day we must wake up and make the same promise to ourselves - to begin again, renewed.
