Midnight motivation and musings

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 89


The fastest way to take away the joy from your everyday living is to consistently spend your time comparing your life to someone else’s.

Set your own goals and stay focused on them.

Always ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing? What’s the primary purpose?

That way you don’t run the risk of drifting like a used paper napkin that floats in the wind, from one track to the other.

When you stay on track, you get to your goal post, but drifting will find you aimless, stressed and not getting to the desired destination.

Like my people would say back home “after the race, we count the miles.” Don’t exhaust yourself and run the race only to find at the end that you ran aimlessly.

P.S. You are invited to our monthly blog party this weekend. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks:-)

Below is my first Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

    1. Dear one, I know that there are days that anxiety sets in and robs us of joy. It’s even amplified when we are tired. Take it easy on yourself. The lines will fall into place. I’m happy that the words are useful to you 🙂
