Keeping my eye on the prize/ 06.04.11

After having this really strange dream, I woke up this morning thinking about my family and the responsibility I have to them. At the same time I woke up with that huge urge to just stay in bed, not do anything; enjoy the day. You know when you wake up feeling like you have just worked too hard, and you deserve a break? Yep it was one of those days. I sat in front of my computer and my mind was completely blank and I just sat there staring… Then I started thinking about why I have to wake up and go for work – to make money. Why I blog – to better my writing skills and encourage creativity, and why I can’t decide to chuck everything in – because I hate being bored. As I went through the thought process I was made aware of how blessed I am, how easy it is to take things for granted, and how much I have left to achieve.

Having this realisation not only forced me to get out of bed, but also gave me that drive to do more than just coast through work and the day. I can’t stand just doing something for doing’s sake, I have to see the end, there has to be a reasoning behind it. When I’m finding it hard to get inspired and do the many things I have to do – I think about my goal. If you do not have one, it would probably explain why you feel so little inspiration most days. To keep your eye on the prize, you have to have one!

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
