Pick Them Up
A motivational speech given by Walter Bond really spoke to me I'm going to paraphrase a bit here but I'll post a link below to listen for yourself.
Walter talks about his dad always picking him up..he remembers when his dad came home from work no matter how tired he was he would pick up his son.. Picking up a child is a spiritual interaction!
So pick them up!
When you pick up a child you change their perspective...
You give them a chance to change the way they see the world.
It is our job to always pick them up... When they get too big to physically pick them up..
Emotionally... Pick them up! ☝
Spiritually... Pick them up!☝
... Keep picking them up.
Always help them change their perspective.. Now to get the full impact of this speech you really have to listen to it for yourself and hear his amazing story of how his own father picked him up when he was down and change his perspective..which took his life to places it never would have gone if his father hadn't picked him up and changed the way he saw his world!
🤔This is something I will never understand when I see it.. NOT only are you suppose to make sure your child(ren) are straight BUT as a #mother you should wanna make sure they are straight! After ALL they didn't ask to be here and you made the decision to have them, therefore taking care of them becomes YOUR responsibility! And it shouldn't require a pat on the back or round of applause for doing so! #itsyourjob#motherhood#motherfirst#mykidscomefirst 💞🚸🚼💞
Happy happy Hump Day to all my beautiful friends out there!!!! Quick morning story.. I go to get in the car that my WIFE drove last night and the gas reading was on EMPTY!! It actually said "2 miles of gas remaining!!😡" But in my wife's defense I'm sure she calculated that the distance between the house and the closest gas station is 1.8 miles so I'll be good!! 😳lol smh #really ?#mywife#mylife#itsyourjob#daddydoinwork#smh#vegaslife
Everyone STAY CALM.... it's Monday again! 5 minutes of scrolling this morning and I've already seen half a dozen posts complaining about Monday! 🙅🏼 Guys, it doesn't have to be that way! Come over to the green side and let me show you how you could be sleeping in til 10 am every Monday like me! 🙌🏼 #ItsNotMondayYouHate#ItsYourJob
Honestly I hate the term *Motivation*
Guess what? You're not always going to feel motivated. Tough shit! There are a lot of requirements in life we don't "feel like" doing but we do them anyway.
Health is work. You won't always feel motivated to take care of yourself but it isn't optional if you want to live a fulfilled life.
I would much rather be at home lounging around with my family than training today. I would much rather spend my Sunday doing nothing at all but I food prep anyway. I do the work because I want what it produces.
Instead of searching for motivation, search your mind for what it is you truly want from life. Now tell me how you'll do those things to the fullest without taking care of your body.
Be grateful for those times you feel motivated. And the rest of the time, just get to work!
