When you wake up every morning, what drives you? What is your purpose?
If you want to live a life enriched with love and happiness it begins with you, so find your purpose and find your WHY.
It’s important to take steps daily to move forward, it’s not always going to be an easy road but if you know your purpose, And what drives and inspires you then you WILL improve your life.
Your why will pull you up when you’ve been knocked down and it will keep you fighting when you’re tired. I heard something this morning from one of my favourite speakers saying “don’t look back you’re not going that way, and when you get knocked down.. get back up”
If we know our purpose it will be the reason you keep on fighting for your dreams.. when it hurts, keep going.. for if we push through those tough times they will only make us STRONGER. Stay focused and do NOT loose sight of that.
Be the very best. Sacrifice, get up early & fight back.. you are FAR from ordinary.
The question remains, Is that all you’ve got?
When I woke up this morning this is what came to mind.. Don’t loose heart, remember this is the battle between you and your mind so you need to drown out the voice of uncertainty with the sound of your own heart beat & you must burn away your self doubt with the fire inside of you.
Believe the voice inside of you that says you can run a little faster, you can grind a little harder. There is nothing as powerful as a changed mind..You can change your hair, you can change your clothing & your address, but if you don’t change your MIND the same experience will perpetuate again and again.. we need to change INWARDLY and focus on our mindset to achieve what we want in life. Don’t be like most people, focus on what you what it is that you want so bad and STEP UP. Discover what you’re capable of my friend, who says you can’t? I believe that the only one who is standing in your way is the person you see reflecting in the mirror. I think something happens when you step into your fears..you make a decision, you make a choice. A choice that is to develop the courage to chase the things that you want in life as your life has value and your dreams have PURPOSE. With that said, What are you going to do with the 24 hours that lay before you? What are you going to do with this new day, this new chapter? Ask yourself.. am I going to STEP UP and chase my goals like a lion chasing a gazelle or am I going to go back to bed. GET UP & GET BUSY, Time waits for no man.
Today was nothing short of beautiful. I am constantly looking for new avenues to inspire my creativity so I decided to venture into town to visit Manchester’s Art Gallery and have a peek at the different artists work.. I was nothing short of inspired.
When you explore places you’ve never been before and you have conversations with different minds you understand and gain new perspectives on the way you view things. I believe you become more open to new ideas and different concepts. I read this dramatic piece about Michelangelo from 1503, where rather than him depict the Battle of Cascina, he decided to show the moment before the fight – where the soldiers were caught off guard whilst bathing before the fight of the Piscan army. I thought deeply about this and I found it inspiring that he chose to draw that moment rather than the actual fight itself.. as I read more I began to realize that his way of thinking was different than everybody else, his thought process was unique and the way he expresses himself is unlike anyone else. I took away with me this simple thought.. Being unique is beautiful, being DIFFERENT is something incomparable and rather than us trying to conform or fit in to societies definition of beauty, we need to own who we are and love ourselves as there is no one else on this earth like you.
Following the Art Museum, I headed over to Manchester’s Cat Cafe. I had never been before so it was all a new experience for me. When I arrived the kind lady at the desk walked me through the process before I eventually headed in to have coffee with the kitties! They have a no shoe policy so I kicked off my boots and wandered into the cafe’ When I got inside it was beautiful! I didn’t know what to expect so when I actually stepped inside I was delighted.. The staff are the friendliest people and the cats are so loving and calm. I loved that every person inside had a smile on their face, it truly was a warm and welcome place to visit Above is a photo I took of a stranger feeding one of the cats which I found quite peaceful. If anyone is thinking of checking this place out, I would highly recommend it and give it a solid 5 stars 🙂
