3 inspiring things shared on Fb by 3 people


Was browsing Fb as usual when I got motivated by 3 things:

1) Humans of New York

My ex-boss shared this:

“When is the time you felt most broken?”
“I first ran for Congress in 1999, and I got beat. I just got whooped. I had been in the state legislature for a long time, I was in the minority party, I wasn’t getting a lot done, and I was away from my family and putting a lot of strain on Michelle. Then for me to run and lose that bad, I was thinking maybe this isn’t what I was cut out to do. I was forty years old, and I’d invested a lot of time and effort into something that didn’t seem to be working. But the thing that got me through that moment, and any other time that I’ve felt stuck, is to remind myself that it’s about the work. Because if you’re worrying about yourself—if you’re thinking: ‘Am I succeeding? Am I in the right position? Am I being appreciated?’ --- then you’re going to end up feeling frustrated and stuck. But if you can keep it about the work, you’ll always have a path. There’s always something to be done.”

Bravo, sir.

To know that someone so great had failed before but succeeded eventually... lets me know that with grit, you can overcome difficult times. 
To know that someone like Obama questions his own abilities sometimes... lets me know that all humans are not infallible.

But more importantly,

I now know that when you put aside your ego, your own me-me-me ideology and look at the bigger picture, a purpose, you get over what's in front of you and you focus on the issue at hand. Not your own successes or failures and whatnot. It's about the actual problem. It's what needs addressing. You forget about unnecessary worries about yourself. And when you focus on addressing the bigger picture, there will naturally be

a motivation.


I'm going to constantly remind myself this as well whenever I feel stuck.

Another thing that got shared on Facebook was this:

2) "I Want It That Way" cover

This sort of music puts me at greatttt ease man.
Love how sucha poppy boppy song can be transformed into a jazz blues rendition.

Yes, music inspires me.
All the time

3) Girl who grew up in African wildlife for the first 10 years of her life

The last one's my absolute fav. Look at bliss on her face.

Her French parents were wildlife photographers and she was born in Namibia.

I must admit I haven't read the article coz I was just amazed by the pictures alone. I had a hard time choosing ones that I love. (there are ones of her with elephants and leopards) The girl's now 23, about the same age as I am.

And why does this inspire me?? Coz it's so wonderful that a girl so young that age was so brave and at one with nature, in the wilderness. So young and wild and free. All those animals didn't frighten her one bit.

Kinda reminds me a little of myself hahaha. Unlike other girls, I never am scared of bugs or creepy crawlies and all that jazz. Not just girls, I think boys even. 

This little one is adorbz. Love all the pictures, she has such a beautiful soullll.
