Every once in a while, sneaky little negative thoughts creep in making me feel a little blue. I've noticed that I've recently been complaining of being very busy, as I am working on lots of stuff right now. But, then I read an article on Lady Gaga that gave me a little perspective (albeit from someone who happens to be possibly the most famous person in the world right now.... and can someone please tell me why she is often covered in fake blood?)
ANYWAY, here is a Lady who while on tour around the world for 3 years, managed to ALSO produce a new album and partake in Lord knows what else along the way, including fashion shoots for Vogue, co-hosting events with Oprah Winfrey and the like... and do you know what she said about feeling tired?
“...I am at that last mile of the marathon when your fingers and your toes are numb and you can’t feel your body, and I am just going on adrenaline. But in the overarching objective of my life, I am really only at mile two. I try to keep that in mind."
I love that. It reminded me that when you are doing stuff you love, you can't really stop. There is a feeling in your soul that you must do it, in fact, you don't really have a choice. You just feel you have to do it. Not because you HAVE to, but because you really want to.
Another bit of inspiration, coming from Holly Becker's podcast (from my BYW class) says not to focus on the negative, and that “you have to push through the struggle” and “keep doing what you love”. I believe this to be true. So, if I'm busy doing a bunch of things I love to do, than I shall no longer complain, but say THANK YOU. Thank you for all the great opportunities coming my way. Thank you for the creative ideas that keep me up at night. Thank you for new friends. Thank you for inspiring classes. Thank you for dreams. Just thank you.
I'll leave you with a song from my daughter's preschool class today, it goes, "Here comes the sun, Little Darling, Here comes the Sun, and I say, IT'S ALRIGHT".
