Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you know that there's still a chance for you, cause there's a spark in you?
You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine......
I love this song. Katy Perry's "Firework". To me, the song is about finding purpose and not being afraid to shine.
I am trying to find purpose, trying to find what brings me joy. And for the first time in my life, enjoying getting to know the "real" me without feeling selfish for doing so.
Here is what I know:
1. I love my family
2. I love the profession I have chosen.
3. I love life
4. I love the pursuit of being healthier
5. I love the pursuit of being happier
6. I appreciate the blessings I have been given
7. I am working on letting go of past hurts.
8. I am working on putting my energy toward positive things, not wasting them on negativity.
9. I am learning to love myself.
10. I have a plan and purpose.
I am not drifting aimlessly like the plastic bag in the Katy Perry song. The dreams exist. I just hadn't laid them out....until today.
After almost 3 years on the Spark, I FINALLY finished my motivational collage.
I think the reason this took me so long to do is because up until now, I wasn't quite sure WHY I was here. It is funny how the mind works. As I was cutting images from Magazines, words here and pictures there, it was putting together the reasons I need to be healthy. And as I put the collage together, the reasons WHY I need to be here became so clear.
I am not drifting aimlessly.
I DO have a goal.
I want to be a well balanced woman.
Who takes time for family.
Who takes time for fun.
Who CAN do it.
If you have not done your motivational collage yet, you might think about doing one. It might help you see the reasons you are here.
I am still stunned.....but more motivated than ever.
