Motivating yourself

Every day is a new life.

When I wake up the mind is clear from yesterday’s worries but also from whatever was driving me to take on yesterday’s challenges. It’s becoming increasingly clear that I need to reflect on my values every single day to get into a state of preparedness and eagerness to work on my goals.

Motivation doesn’t last for more than a day, but now I can take comfort in knowing that I can recreate it at will. This, again, isn’t a nuanced take. I just don’t have the time today. I’m helping a loved one move, which, on top of my other responsibilities, doesn’t leave much room for reflection.
