MISSING: My Motivation...... please help me find it :)

Sunday, May 06, 2012

My motivation is missing and the search is on........

I swear I left it right never left my side. I have no idea how something so magnificent and hard to miss could've been lost.

It was with me always about a year ago. Anytime I would eat, or exercise, or shop, it was right there by my side.

Then one day, it slipped its leash and I haven't seen it since. I miss it and would love to have it returned.

If you have found it, would you please let me know ASAP. I really would love to have my motivation back. I kinda need it.

For those who are not sure if they have seen it or not, here is a description of my motivation:

Big......I mean gargantuan. It was so big it convinced me to lose over 65 pounds. It would talk me into all sorts of crazy stuff -- Zumba classes, Kettlebells, staying on the elliptical even when I really really really wanted to get off, eating what I knew I should and how much I should, and talking me into trying on that shirt or those shorts or that dress and not feeling bad if it was a little tight. I loved the way it would say in my ear "just a little more...... just a little longer". It was pretty convincing.

Loud... "right in my ear and into my head" loud! Thing was, it wasn't an unpleasant noise; it was actually quite soothing and normal after a while. I liked the sound of my motivation.

Loyal... I could count on my motivation when the going got tough.

I guess work and life and other distractions caused me to begin ignoring it. I am sure it felt pretty bad when I no longer chose to listen. I might run away too if I thought nobody heard me.

I am ready to start listening again. So if somebody finds it, please let it know I am still here..... I will be so much more attentive this time.

I promise.

    Your motivation is there sitting in the corner of the kitchen ... sad and forgotten - waiting for you to invite it back into your life. It will gladly come to you like a special old friend ... who wants nothing but the best for you and to be loved. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to. Be kind to yourself and your motivation will shine, putting that spark of determination back in your eye.
