7 Things to Remember When You Don’t Want to Do Anything

Everyone struggles to find the energy and motivation to start, whether it’s doing something new or continuing unfinished work. Life is full of occasions that require you to work on days that you may not find the most excited or “in the mood” to beat deadlines. Despite your exhaustion and burden, you need to move forward. Indeed, getting started is the hardest part. But don’t you worry, you can try again and again.

As you grow older, you will learn to practice discipline in accomplishing your goals regardless of your mood or feeling. Life forces you to become responsible and resilient with your actions because face it, you have no other choice. Sometimes, you just have to deal with your doubts and inhibitions and do the work anyway. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s not impossible. Find a way to break down the physical, emotional, and mental barriers by inserting humor in your work, rewarding yourself after completing a task, or taking a break between busy schedules.

The Secret to Being Happy for Others’ Success

The secret to being happy for others’ success is to have the confidence that you will have your season of success at the right time. It’s accepting the reality that everyone has different timelines in life. It is understanding that clapping for others’ achievements while waiting for yours to happen doesn’t make you small. It is focusing on improving your skills and attitude while going through a series of challenges towards your goals. The whole secret to being open-minded and supportive of your peers’ successes is by discerning that their wins do not take away your chances of succeeding. Just because they’re enjoying the result of their hard work first doesn’t mean you won’t have your time to shine.

1st Year Blogging: What I’ve Learned as a First-time Lifestyle Blogger

A blogger’s journey to success starts with years of questioning her place in this industry (and that means being overwhelmed most of the time) but still giving it her best. Making it to a full year of part-time blogging while attending college online classes is such a huge achievement for me. Not everyone is disciplined enough to pull off the work it takes to reach one whole year making a name for yourself on the internet. The number of hours dedicated to brainstorming content and optimizing SEO in every blog post is mind-blowing for any newbie blogger. I can’t believe it’s been a year. The thought of celebrating my 1st blogging anniversary gives me a feeling of thrill, hope, and gratitude.

5 Reasons People Still Attach Themselves to Their Mistakes

One of the main causes of a person’s unhappiness is the inability to recover from a mistake. We all have our share of embarrassing, devastating, and life-changing mistakes in our lives. We have made so many choices, but not all of them are good ones. Over time, we’re going to ponder on our decisions and wish we hadn’t done some of those. Sometimes, we feel mortified for the things we’ve done that we translate our shame into negativity. Once your insecurities get the better of you, you’re going to be afraid to make shortcomings, and sooner, afraid to take risks. These regrets of the past are limiting our beliefs to turning over a new leaf in the present. The deeper we dwell on our mistakes, the less motivated we are to embrace our flaws. Many people are holding themselves back from creating a future they want because they attach their worth to their mistakes.

An Open Letter to Someone Who's Exhausted But Is Still Trying

There are varied definitions of strength but one of its most overlooked types is the strength to keep trying. This type of vigor is invisible to the naked eye but is felt through the heart. I know many people who are hanging by a thread, getting by in life, and hiding behind their seemingly perfect social media profiles. Usually, the people who love to make everyone laugh in the room are those who have it the hardest in life. These happy-go-lucky people have a positive disposition, and that’s why it’s easier for them to use humor to avoid vulnerability.
