Life can be a b*tch at times. There’s always something going on, something to do and often times little to no motivation to deal with any of it. On the days that you just really can’t find the motivation to keep pushing, take a second to think about all of the simple things in life that mean so much.
With DJ Khaled being one of the most entertaining, motivational and grateful people to ever hit social media, I thought it was fitting to have him help me deliver this positive message on this beautiful day.
You have a roof over your head, food in your belly and clothes on your back
Not to mention access to a web-enabled device to even read this. So what if you’re not draped in designer down to your finger nails? People starving in third world countries wish they had even a small percentage of all the blessings that you take for granted everyday.
There are plenty of opportunities out there
You just have to go after them full-throttle and in some cases create them.
There’s always someone in your corner
There’s always someone rooting for you whether it’s you mom, a close friend or DJ Khaled. You’re never 100% alone in anything.
You’ve gotten so far, there’s no way but up from here
The fact that you even have expectations of how your life should be means that you must have accomplished things that have made you think this way. A few hiccups and disappointments doesn’t mean your life is over before it even started.
Once again, you’re NOT alone. Stop looking at people’s “perfect” lives on social media as a benchmark (because they’re not perfect, at all). Even Beyonce, has a down day here and there but being defeated is just not what a Queen or King does.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, so stop expecting your dream life to be
Something as bomb as the life that you’re imagining for yourself takes time to build. Instead of focusing on the end goal, do the work that it takes to get there.
Gratitude and happiness go hand in hand.
What are some things that keep you going even on an off day?
