Another Monday has fallen at our feet so it must mean another #MondayMotivation post.
Today’s inspiration came from a passage I read from one of my books a couple of weeks ago. It struck a cord with me and as a keen observer of peoples behaviour, it was a stark reminder that I feel we all need reminding.
No One Said It Was Easy
No one ever said to you that life was going to be easy and no one said it was going to be fair. I think we’ve forgotten this, everything we do, we do to make our lives a little easier. If we persistently struggle with something, we either drop it and leave it or make modifications to make things easier. Now I’m not saying that, that’s necessarily a bad thing however, a little struggle isn’t a bad thing either.
Remember that you come from a long unbroken line of ancestors who struggled and survived unimaginable adversity and difficulty. You have their genes and their blood running through you right now. Literally without them, you wouldn’t be here. Did they have a easy life? Probably not, not many of us do.
You are an heir to an impressive tradition, one of struggle, determination, stubbornness and the will to never give in and as their offspring, you’re capable of what they were capable of.
You’re Meant For This, Bred For It
Just keep that in mind when things get tough. Yes sometimes it would be nice to have an easy life, but would it be fulfilling, would it make you a better person? Probably not. Embrace the struggle and carry on the tradition.
Have a great week guys.
Stay strong and live, love and laugh!
