You know, when times get tough, it's hard to stay motivated. One of the first things to go when things get hectic, or awry is your own self-care.
If you don't take care of yourself first, then dealing with hectic situations can be made far worse because you're not in the position to withstand the stress. It's compromised further because of your lack of self-care. Without your health or well-being it's all made to be more difficult than it needs to be. Give yourself a head start and begin with your own self-care!
Feelings are fickle. No matter how you feel, get up, get dressed, get going, and don't ever, ever, EVER give up! Eventually, routine, habits, and results will keep you moving forward in a positive direction.
This is a really great song that I remember from my childhood from those Christmas movies that used to come on every year during the Christmas season. No matter what time of year it is, you can always apply this to your life at any time!
Grab some motivation from Hold On by Sean Paul. I like to listen to this when it seems like I've been working at something forever and everyone else has forgotten about it except for you and your beliefs...
