I know it’s been a minute since I’ve laid some motivation on you but I’m back at it this morning.
Today’s theme comes from a testimony of a woman who is no longer on this earth but that speaks to me continuously in heaven: my mother. Tomorrow she would have celebrated her 57th birthday but even in her short time on this earth she had an incredible journey.
When I look back at the things that my mother endured, the obstacles she overcame and the peace she finally found in her eternal slumber, I’m reminded that life is nothing without happiness.
As a young but experienced woman, I work hard to care for and please my family, friends, managers, team mates and so on. Sometimes to a point that I totally exhaust myself and I lose my smile.
It seems like this is a hereditary trait passed down from my great-grandmother, to my grandmother, down to Mom and now me.
I don’t know if you can relate but I get lost in wanting to put smiles on others faces that I don’t even notice that mine is gone into I fall into an unexpected depression…and that sucks!
As I continue to think through my master plan, I’ve decided to make sure to dedicate a section of my plan towards my own happiness. And you should too!
One of the hardest things in life to find that balance between selfishness and selflessness – Too much of either can cause a lifetime of loneliness but a good balance of both will keep your heart full for an eternity.
So as I get ready to raise a glass to my mother this weekend, I’m making sure I keep “happiness” an active player in my life, as she would have wanted. Do the same; toast to your happiness.
