Every day I strive to be better, a better mother, wife, sister, writer, friend.
Every day I also fail, or at least feel like I fail, in one of my designated areas of improvement.
But I don't let it stop me from trying. If I did, that would be the real failure.
Staying motivated, driven to change is not easy. I constantly look for sources of inspiration no matter how trivial or odd.
For this month's IWSG post, I wanted to share my latest source of inspiration. It's a commercial. Immediately after I saw it, I wanted to be healthier. The next morning I did something about it. Just thirty minutes on the elliptical and a little yoga.
Then I returned my mother's phone call, which was overdue by two days. I also edited two chapters.
I'm not saying to expect a miracle from watching this. We all have different motivational triggers. This one happened to work for me.
Whether it pushes your button or not, never stop striving to be better at something.
Thank you Alex for IWSG.
