Do you ever feel tired of working so hard and giving it your all? Do you just want to quit sometimes? Are you tired of doing the right thing and feeling like it is not working out in your favor? Are you tired of keep showing up? Can I get a show of hands because I will put both my hands up on this one. It is exhausting to keep showing up.
Do you have days, weeks, or months when you want to quit school and just forget it. Bloggers do you want to quite blogging some days in your frustration? Instagram is nuts and there are constant pulls and changes in the blogging business right? I have been there in my life.
School was very much a situation where I was tired of keeping showing up. I had days where I got dressed for school only to show up to withdrawal and maybe get some refund. As worn out as I was, somehow I kept showing up. Day after day into year after year, I kept showing up. Frustration was there and there was too many days I was just forget homework, but a part of me still showed up. It was truly a desire of mine to get a degree and I realized it was ingrained in my heart. Because of that even on the hard days, I kept showing up and eventually I finished school. It wasn’t always glamorous, doing hard things aren’t usually, but I finished.
There is so much sound advice out there that people give about working towards you goals working hard and pushing. Can we keep it real that sometimes I’ve wanted to scream at people that said “it will be worth it and good things take time”. Don’t you want to sometimes shake “they “ whoever they is. When you feel so tired and you feel like no none gets it, I promise you there is someone in your shoes. We all have things to overcome and preserve through. It takes more energy most times to motivate yourself than to actually do the thing you are trying to be motivated for. There are challenges I have had in life where I was my own obstacle most times. I was my own road in the block to keep showing up.
There is sometimes a 5 page sermon as they say and sometimes just one line that helps in situation. Usually the later works for me because it is a golden nugget I can hang out to and repeat to myself. I want to encourage you and me to keep showing up.
Those are the winners because they physically, emotionally, and psychologically understand what is takes invest your whole self into to making things work. That’s success. It is isn’t always the flashy ones one that are always so visibly motivated that make it, it is the ones who just stick to the basic idea of showing up. Consistency, grit, perseverance are quality skills that make up a quality person. There is no package you can buy at the grocery store for consistency, but there is a simple formula you can run with right away, keep showing up.
Whatever it is that you are struggling with, just showing up makes a huge difference. I believe in taking breaks when you’re burned out but stay with it. I’m here for you. I go through discouragement just the same. If you want to chat, let me know. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me out a Tweet to @naomi_noel_and reach out.
