You are not going nowhere just because you haven’t arrived at your final destination yet.
It’s Monday and it’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. And on this Monday I’m thinking about how after weeks of feeling unmotivated to do anything, I’m going to try and tell anyone how I’m motivated for this week.
Being a college student, school can get to be a lot. Especially when trying to balance a job and sorority life all at once. Life gets hard. Life will get to be so much you’ll just want to break down and quit. And you might, but getting back up is what’s important. For a while earlier this month I thought I had reached my breaking point. I did break down many times. I broke down at the smallest of details and I vented my frustrations out on anyone who would listen. Which after a few days, was no one. Then the fog cleared and all the responsibilities that were thrown on top of me at once started to fade into the past. I’m starting to get back up on my feet and learning to balance everything. I’m halfway through the semester and I see the month-long break on the horizon. I’m taking back everything I love to do. I’m getting time to read again and I can literally see the end of Six of Crows (160 pages from the end and I’m determined to finish this week).
Hopefully you read the quote above because that is something I repeat to myself everyday. Just because I feel like I’m making no progress in school, work, the books I read, or anything else, doesn’t mean I’m going nowhere. Everything takes time and when I look back on this, it will seem like nothing. I just have to get back up on my feet and keep going. And hopefully I will finish Six this week because it’s getting good and it has been put down too much by me.
Also, here is a link to one of my favorite speeches at a concert. I find it reassuring and motivational and I hope you do too.
