What If Tomorrow is Too Late?

Inspiration is my new drug. It’s really cool, it’s just this breathtaking feeling that pops up out of nowhere and you’re like, “Damn that’s such a good idea.” Sometimes it makes you stay up all night thinking about it, or distracts you from your work or a conversation with your friend. But it’s worth it. It only comes around once in awhile so you should grab it, put it in your pocket, bring it to the bathroom and sniff the shit out of it. Why would you waste something like that? Do it right now while it’s in your veins.

I’ve seen so many people think they are not good enough and waste their talent. Most of the time people think:

one: we have to be perfect
two: we have to follow the rules
three: we have to have money to be happy and successful

All wrong. You don’t have to do any of that.

One: it isn’t about being perfect. People that bring humanity and flexibility to their lives / work will thrive because when they make a mistake, they know they will be able to adapt to a the new situation and everything will be fine. Everybody can get a 10 out of 10, but can you add something human to it?

Two: following the rules makes you like everybody else. It makes you replaceable, anyone can follow a rule or an instruction. But can you be creative, generous, artistic……can you be a troubleshooter? Someone that doesn’t have an instruction manual to do something, they just figure it out. They know how to solve the problem and get things done. They are not afraid to do it. Can you predict a problem before there is one?

Three: money is a waste of time. If you are working just for the money, you should quit. You aren’t gaining anything from that job, you aren’t learning or growing or doing anything that is worthwhile to your life. You should work for inspiration, money should be considered your junk mail.

I think I spend most of my day worrying, I’d say 80% of the time I am questioning every single thing that I do, because there is no map. I don’t know if what I am doing is right or wrong, but it shouldn’t matter. The only way to find out is by making something happen for myself.

or myself

And  when I am truly doing something for myself or doing something bigger than myself, I feel warm inside. 

I feel like I can really feel what it’s like to be alive, to be noticed and accepted. To….. be me.

My life has been a constant stream of ups and downs, and some of the time it’s mostly downs. When I start to doubt myself it makes the hard times even worse. I’ve learned that keeping true to myself helps me cope with the tough times.

And when I experience that split second of pure ME, I grab a hold of it and let it consume me and I bathe in the momentary blankness to not have to think or try to be anything else.

I smile, feel free and appreciate every tiny second for in that moment nothing can touch me.

  1. Lovely, inspirational post but why is it that those great ideas always come to you just before you are about to fall asleep and the momentum seems to disappear by the time you wake up?

  2. I feel inspired now after reading this. You have inspired me to stop holding myself back and really work hard on what I enjoy doing. #GlobalBlogging

  3. Wow are you spot on. Life is short and who wants regrets. I was just saying on Friday to the Mrs, we need to have more fun, good times…get past all the hard stuff. Because who cares? We all love each other and the time is now. Your post just confirmed it all. #GlobalBlogging

  4. Life is short hey, I love the one two three things that people think. I need to except I’m not ever going to be perfect but that is OK and stop worrying about pleasing other people. Thanks for the motivational post! #GlobalBlogging

  5. That split second of pure Me…
    I find something on par with that when the writing is flowing well.
    Maybe it’s that in those moments, I am my own friend, whereas usually I’m not.
    I can be a decent friend to another, but it’s not so easy to be a good friend to myself.
    Great post. Inspiration. Inspiration does not have a pricetag.

  6. This is a great reminder that time is fleeting, enjoy every moment. Sometimes that is hard when youa re so tired, so fed up, so BUSY…but we really need to enjoy the every moment. #globalblogging

  7. This is brilliant! It is important to remember to get absorbed but the ‘me’ every now and again and not just the ‘essentials’ of daily living. Follow and complete those dreams, make them goals and do something for ourselves.

  8. This is so true. I’m a comms planner in my day job, so spend a lot of time thinking and planning but need to do more on the doing front. When it came to starting my blog, rather than spend loads of time thinking about it, I just dove right in and started it. I’m so pleased I did! I’m now refining it, because it wasn’t perfect (and I didn’t even choose the right hosting platform at first, doh!) But if I’d waited I may have got to the end of my maternity leave and totally regretted it. Don’t delay, do it today is my new motto! Thanks for hosting this global linky – fantastic idea! #GlobalBlogging

  9. That’s such an inspiring post. I love the 3 things people aspire to, you are so right we shouldn’t aim for those goals.

  10. I so read you when you say you spend a lot of time worrying. There’s only so much worrying though that can be done right? #GlobalBlogging

  11. What I love about this post is that you have put into words, how I feel every day. Most of us have been conditioned to live and work for certain reasons. But it’s all crap. Always do what you love. Be inspired. Inspire others. Thank you. #globalblogging

  12. Lovely words. Couldn’t agree more about money. My husband cannot get over the fact that I really don’t care about money. As long as my family are safe and happy that’s all that matters. Xx

  13. So true! It’s so easy as a first time mum to constantly question yourself! Am I doing this right? Is there a better way? What do others think? Why can’t I be more like… and so on! I wish I could get better at just trusting my own gut and and just do what makes me and my family happy.
    Very inspiring xx

  14. Ah that’s so great! Sometimes you just have to DO. Side note: I work with Comms planners at a media agency in London : )

  15. Great post! It reminded me of this quote: “You have two lives. The second one begins when you realize you only have one.” – Confucius
    I always try to do what I am passionate about and enjoy every single moment with my babies. #globalblogging

  16. Wow. Amen, Amen, and amen! What an awesome post. I love all 3 points. Especially “Not Being Afraid to Do It”.. I think that’s where I fall short. I question myself all the time! You knocked this one out the park!!! #globalblogging

  17. “Money should be considered your junk mail”. I love this. It really resonates. Everything I do revolves around money and getting more of it, or enough of it. I really need to just go with the flow and have money as the bi-product. Great post. #globalblogging

  18. Thanks , I’ve just been looking for information approximately this subject for a while and yours is the best I’ve found out till now. However, what about the bottom line? Are you certain about the supply?
