Self Motivation

Motivation is a reason or rather reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way. There needs to be a reason….I learned.

As much as I love to live in a healthy space, my health & wellness matters; and it is my constant drive to do what I do best. I cannot comprise! Growing up knowing that my chances of getting a Type 2 diabetes is 95% due to genetics (my late father succumb his life to it), this is enough push for me to refuse the facts; although medically proven to be correct but I don’t take. I will fight until I am declared an overcomer.

This morning, my desire to stay healthy and of course my inner drive to prove otherwise, pushed me to wake up. I knew that I have not been working out for over a week now; but I never got discouraged because of that. I was determined to win today; and I did

This was my 2nd fasted run in a while; I just did it guys ! I feel so proud of myself because when I push myself to do something, the so called “not-so-nice” things to do when I was supposing to be relaxing and taking it easy, I worked out. The feeling is so great and my day is definitely complete because I feel good.

This is what motivation does to us

You feel like you own the World !

I am not sure about you, but let me tell you something…When you want to set the pace for the day…do what you like most and at the end, feel good about it! Just shame that voice that will tell you not to do it! Refuse …

I Just Did; and I know you are inspired and encouraged too!

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist” I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school. I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing Sharing is golden
