Days like today make me question if I really want it. It being those things associated with fulfilling my purpose. Those things I wrote down and memorized once I discovered why I was created. Those things manifested as a result of positively exploiting my gifts. Today, I don’t know if I actually want it.

Today is one of those days where I have to look deep within. I have to consider the alternative because, in this instance, the pain of failure is far greater than the delayed gratification of success.

Today, I have to think about what happens if I don’t dig deep and move towards my purpose. I get the unrelenting onset of major depression. I get the constant negative thoughts. I get to be working in a career, totally unfulfilled. I get to commit spiritual suicide. I “kill off” my connection with my Creator and walk away from His plans.

Some days it’s easier to think of the consequences for inaction. Some days the rewards of action are not enough. Some days it’s more about what happens if I choose not to act.

Today, Thursday, September 9, 2021, I am grateful that:
Motivation can come from the negative. Those negative consequences have far greater effect than I sometimes realize.
I have time to keep working towards my purpose. It’s not over until I draw my last breath. I can keep moving forward, doing my best that particular day. Some days my performance will be better than others. It’s important that I perform.
Spoon reached out a bit earlier this morning. He’d seen some coverage about a typhoon and was concerned about my well being. After nearly twenty years, we still keep connected.

What makes you act when you really don’t want to?

How do you find inspiration?
