I was reading a couple of motivational tweets, bbm statuses, and facebook updates and I was swept away by how popular encouraging words are in social media. The better the things you have to say, and the more inspired you make people feel, the more popular you are. People want to read what makes them feel good: “today is your day”, “the only way from here is up”, “living each day like it’s my last”. I love reading things like this because it gives me a shot of energy – like a shot of vodka or something it gets straight into my blood stream and gives me a kick. (p.s. vodka was only an example, do not put me down as some sort of junkie…)
Anyway as good as this all is I also know some of the people who put up these great words and phrases, and happen to know that a lot of what they say, they do not live by. Do not get me wrong, they are great people with great personalities, but because I know them personally I know that they are not “living each day like it is their last”. This is not a people bashing blog, it just really made me think about how determined I am to have the words that I have written marry up with the life I live. I will be the first to admit that at times you will catch me slipping – I am happy with that! What I don’t want is for you to know that I live on the floor.
