I am struggling.
I am struggling to push myself to certain goals that I know mean a lot to me, because I am not training for something. Not for a competition.
I have not yet managed to use myself as my own motivation. To be better than I was yesterday.
Yes I love hitting a new personal best. But that isn’t always enough to get up in the morning.
I was watching a motivational youtube video today with Dex. About doing anything you set your mind to.
I told him he can do anything he wants, he can be anything he wants as long as he works hard for it. That we have to do things the right way, not the easy way. because the right way is how you get to where you want to be.
He said to me “Mum, if anyone tells you that you can’t do something, you just say “I CAN” and you keep going.”
Then we were talking about working hard again, and we can be anything.
He said “Can you show me how, Mum?”
And I guess that’s what I’m doing this for.
Maybe when I can’t get out of bed for myself in the morning. When the alarm is easy to turn off, to roll over, to take the easy way.
I need to remember my children and showing them the right way is not always easy, but it is what we need to do it we want to get what we want.
If we work hard, we CAN be what we want to be. And working hard isn’t always easy. And it isn’t always fun.
But it is always worth it.
