“It can certainly be frustrating feeling stuck, overwhelmed, broke, sick, lonely or lacking purpose. These emotional traps can knock you down into a state of depression throwing your hands up saying “what’s the use?” When I find myself slipping into darkness, I work on training my brain to focus on what I’m grateful for. I begin to see how far I have come, but I remain dissatisfied enough to want to improve. It’s a tricky balance to be grateful when all your circumstances seem dark or bearing no fruit. You can do it! I believe gratitude coupled with discontent is the turn around.
Thomas Edison once said,”Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.”
Gratitude lifts your head so you can begin to dream again with a humbled heart. Let your discontentment become your own motivation kicking you out of fear and into action. Don’t complain… remain hungry enough in your soul to want to achieve your goal. Learn the power of resiliency. Bounce back up. Get up. Think up. Cheer up. Count up your blessings. Look up. Speak up. Grow up. Stand up. Hook up with the right people. Turn up your faith and praise to God. But don’t give up! ” – Jewel Diamond Taylor
