Motivational Quotes for the day; Find your passion!
Change is not easy to embrace when we become stuck in our ways. Depression, loneliness, feelings of unworthiness begin to take control, and before long we are on that downward spiral that you will hopefully be able to recover from. Many don't, but you can.
Can you see? Can you walk? Can you read? Can you laugh? Can you smile?
Can you hear? Can you feel? Can you love and be loved? Can you give and/or receive a hug?
Yes, you can, and even if you cannot do some of these. Go over to your window and stand in front of it for 5 minutes. Close your eyes and feel the warmth coming through the window. Now open them. Do you see the sun shining? The trees swaying in the wind? The people walking on the street? Can you still feel the warmth of the sun coming through the window?
It's time to get out of your dark place, venture out onto the street, smile at someone, laugh a bit, feel the sun, hug someone. Hold the door open for that elderly Man/Women. Call a friend - if even you have not talked to them in years. Do at least one thing positive in your day and you will not feel so hopeless.
You are an incredible individual with so much untapped potential, wisdom, and passion. End the cycle of loneliness you are in and tap into your potential.
I will leave you with a list of motivational quotes for the day.
