What Motivates You?

The Best Movie EVER

Why do you get out of bed in the morning?

Is it motivation or obligation?

Do you go to work to climb the ladder or do you go because you have bills that need to be paid?

    Depends on the day.

    Today I dragged my lazy bones out of bed at 5:30 am because I’ve been missing yoga and was craving a good session – and that happens to be the only class I could make today. And now I plan, because I’m mildly insane, to do that Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays – because I loved how it made me feel, and because (in my opinion) doing something that makes life good is always more than worth it.

    Most days, I hit snooze as many times as I can get away with before heaving myself out from under the warm covers and stumbling around in a fog, trying not to forget anything important I’ll need at the office that day. My job simply pays the bills, and while I am grateful to work for a great company, my actual daily responsibilities are tedious, passionless, and unfulfilling.

    But I believe that every tiresome day that I haul my bum to work, I’m contributing a small piece to building a greater, beautiful life – for myself and my family – that matters, a life that is bold and adventurous. I believe that one day we’ll look back on the path we took and be proud that we didn’t just take the safe and easy way out, but chose to struggle and dream and work hard to live without regrets.

    And so, in reality, that’s what motivates me – choosing to really live every day that I’m alive.
