Inspired to be Inspired

What if we woke up everyday not knowing what our purpose is in life or waking up without a game plan? Inspiration comes from the heart and mind.  What inspires you?  motivational-wallpaper-13.jpg

Let me tell you a little story.  Years ago I wasn’t where I wanted to be as an author.  I wrote my first book entitled “A Collection of God’s Word and Motivation” back in 2012.  I was working at a temp agency with little work to do, so I just started writing down my thoughts which were poems of encouragement.  No one knew that they were poems about my past.  I was trying to encourage myself through it all by writing it out on paper.  I wanted to give up everyday because of what I was going through.  I couldn’t function, I was depressed, I was angry, frustrated, emotionally lost; I was in a very dark place for a long time.

But as years went past, I turned over a new life with a purpose in mind.  Being an author was cool, but I wasn’t in the game to compete with other others or trying to make people buy my books.  I was inspired by giving back by offering services for authors and small business owners.  I realized the hard way that you can’t make people support your hustle and dreams.

So I’m telling you to get inspired by being inspired.  Wake up with a plan and a purpose!  The past is the past and your present is what  you can live for to prepare yourself for the future.
