Hello friend, fancy seeing you here once again.
Today, I am here to talk to you about motivation. We
live now in a peculiar time where some people have
found their long-lost motivation to exercise or indulge
in their passions and hobbies, whereas other people,
have lost their motivation as they simply moved from
one monotonous routine to another and are longing to
We sometimes wake up feeling worn out and
lethargic, other times, as enthusiastic and alert as one
can ever be. For now, we are all simply trying to get
acclimated to these new circumstances. For now, we
are all trying to be the quintessential adaptable
people; strong, motivated, and self-contained. After
all, life is one ubiquitous game whose rules are never
Time is moving slowly, so our minds wander. We
ruminate about those halcyon days of childhood where
everything was simple. We reminisce about a time with
no expectations and no pressures from life. Back then,
everything seemed magical and grandiose, and every
day was a quest to understand things that we perceive
now to be rather mundane. As we grow older, we learn
to look beyond the mendacious facets of our world;
delving into its pointillistic aesthetics and essence.
Our musings are every so often interrupted by sounds
of birds chirping, waves crashing, and that one person
whispering “I believe in you”. Occasionally, a faint
feeling of restlessness consumes us; motivation is
fading. Yet, voicing our concerns seems like nothing
but an endless soliloquy.
Nevertheless, whenever you feel ambivalent,
remember that every game we play, every connection
we make, and every opportunity we choose to seize or
not to seize becomes fraught with not only risk, but
also possibility. Ineffable; “is it fate or is it nothing but
a brilliant gambit?”, you ask, but then you hear it
again, the melody of that one person whispering “I
believe in you”, except that this time, it is you.
Suddenly, the sight of that one spark amidst the dark
grim horizon, albeit incongruous, is perhaps the most
beautiful thing you could lay eyes on. Serendipity.
We certainly cannot prognosticate the future,
predict what may or may not be. Thus life, in essence,
is not the destination but the journey, and to waltz
through it, motivation is a traveller’s strongest ally.
and So friend, once again, I hereby invite you to sift
through these pages, and dive into various tales of the
motivated, the inspired and all those in between.
