Midnight motivation and musings

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 95


A lot of us are used to setting off with a task at hand and never completing them. We start all out with zeal, taking leaps, and bounds in days and by the end of the week, month or set time, we’ve backslid so far we can’t even see the frontline where we started from.

Note to self: Try to stay on track by, setting reasonable goals and timelines, setting anticipated steps to get to goals, make a plan for drawbacks and strategy to get back on track when and if we do backslide…like I have a thousand times and make yourself accountable.

Learn to forgive yourself when you fall off, pick up lessons on how and why you fell off the wagon and also take into account making time for rest, recuperation, revving your engine and rebounding back. It’s better to be consistent than bursts of starts and stops that get nowhere.

Sometimes, working with a team of others helps to keep us on track, helps to sharpen our skills and also helps to uplift us when we experience a glitch. Consider team building with others as a way of strengthening your base.


Below is my first just published 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. I used to fall off the wagon so many times, I lost count. But I’ve gotten better, I set my goals and to my best to stick to them. But you’re right learning to forgive and finding a team really helps.


  2. Good reminders! I often lose sight of rest and run myself crazy just to hit a goal. In the end I hit the goal but lose what matters most – grace and love those around me need.


  3. Wise words Jacqueline. I’m happy I read this post this morning, it was exactly what I needed to hear/read. Enjoy your weekend my friend 💕🙏🏻
