I Reflect On My “Why” When The Chips Are Down


When nothing else matters, we find our resolve in the moments of adversity and challenging times.  In the silent moments when there are no more cheerful on lookers and as self-doubt seeps in.  We draw upon the strength within and our relentless reason for being and doing, our ultimate reason, or as so many would put it, our “why” to keep the engine of motivation running.  So that we may continue to rise above the self-doubt or our inability to do something that we may not do well at the time.

There are times we may not feel like writing, going to the gym, going to work or even getting out of the bed in the morning because we may not be feeling at our best or as a result of our mitigated resolve or weakened state.  That is why it is so important to have a reason that mean more to you than money to you.

I can only talk from my own experience.  I believe there are times when I feel I can take on the world, motivate, and inspire people.  There are also times where my own resolve appears to be spent. Which leaves me to look at my own notes and remember, reflect, why I do what I do, and why it is important to me to continue to lead the charge in my own life.  I don’t have many people I personally know who can motivate or inspire me, except through books and blogs of perfect strangers.

What I found is this, it’s easy to write about how life is so great and watch others live life to the fullest.  But that’s just cosmetics.  The balance of it all, is to write about the good and the bad things in life.

To have a platform that speaks to its readers with the ability to inspire others to be their better selves even behind closed doors when there is no one looking.

I am an amateur blogger and started to blog openly of my weight loss journey.  Ever since I started blogging I realized I enjoy writing.  Writing about my journey is also a better way to build on writing as I become a better writer.
