Motivation vs. Determination

Okay, let's get something straight here. Motivation is useless. Well, maybe not completely useless. But pretty darn unimportant.

Us humans reach and search for that sensation of "motivation" as we call it. The feeling of greatness and ability to do things, feeling productive and accomplished. But that's all it is, a sensation. And it comes and goes. We can't rely on it. And sometimes we search for it and it doesn't come at all. That's where determination comes in.
The difference between Motivation and Determination is: motivation is a feeling, determination is an action.
Determination is basically when we do something whether we want to or not. We do it because we know we need to or we should. Determination is a strength. An inner strength.A willpower. Obligation. Discipline. You have to train yourself to be determined and disciplined. So even when you don't feel motivated to do something you still do it because you are determined. It's all about you training yourself to overcome your feelings and emotions and stop letting your feelings control you. Instead, take control of them and be determined. 

I have been through a recent phase where I have felt like I'm just not good enough, I can't do all this. I was off my game, off the bandwagon, losing self-control, slipping away from the better me I once was. And I can't sit here and tell you that there is a magic cure for this type of feeling, I know we've all been there. But I can tell you this, I'm back now. I'm back on my game. I love myself again. And the only way I got through that time was because I kept being determined, sure I cried and cried over things that I was making a mess of, but I didn't give up. I knew what I wanted and I was determined. Sure I'm still making mistakes, and eating candy when I know I should be losing weight, and sleeping all day when I know I have things to do. But it's okay. The more important thing is that I'm determined to keep improving. I'm forgiving myself and pushing forward. And that's the only way you'll ever get anywhere. Be Determined, and I guarantee that you'll see results.

Everything You Need To Be Happy Is Inside You

Let's face it, at the end of the day, all you have is yourself. Yes, family is important, relationships are important, but at the end of the day, it's all you baby. Are you going to be happy? Or are you going to let people around you decide that for you? You are the person with the most power in your life. It's your choice to be happy. The things around you, the people around you don't get to decide who you are and what makes you happy or what makes your life good. You decide how you react to your circumstances. It's up to you. Your emotions don't have to be controlled by the things that happen to you. It's only when you react to the circumstances that they have power over your emotions. If you rely on your inner-self to be happy and not your circumstances, they won't have power over you. Stop thinking there's something wrong with you or that you are missing something. There's nothing wrong with you, and you are not missing anything. You already…

There's a Reason for Everything

It's hits me once and awhile, and i cherish these moments, why something happpened to me and what i learned from it. I realizse why i went through something, or why i did something even when i had no idea at the time why i should do that. I love it when my memorises come back to me. Something i haven't thought of since it happened and i didn't even know i had that memory.
 That's how i know everything happens for a reason, and that's how i can believe that. Becuase i know that someday in my future i will realize why today happened. I will discover the reason for today even though i might not see it right now. I will remember the choices i made today and learn from them and learn why i chose them, and ultimately learn more about myself. 
There is a reason for whatever it is that is in your life right now. You might be doing really well and so many things are good and like they're falling into place, or you might feel like everything is falling apart and like lif…

You're Not Invisible

I've felt invisible. I know someone reading this has felt it too. You feel like there are so many people around you but you're not seen by any of them. Their all oblivious of your presence. You're another face in the crowd.

But let me tell you, 
I See You. 
You are seen. You are acknowledged. Don't fall into that downward spiral of thinking that no one cares about you. Catch yourself before you fall. Sometimes we feel neglected when we really aren't. We're being dramatic. I know I sound insensitive but trust me I've been there too. I'm there right now as I write this. There are people all around me yet I feel like nobody cares. And then out of nowhere, someone talks to me or smiles at me and I realize I'm not invisible. I realize I am seen. 
Let me be that voice, that person that comes over to you right now and asks how you are doing. I see you and everyone else does too. You Matter and you have to believe that because I can tell you what I think o…
