I just finished reading another blog written by the beautiful Kathleen Guy >> This one to be exact! << and I actually enjoyed (a part from the whole thing) reading a bit that really stood out to me.
Kathleen wrote; -
“I admire people who have come through difficult situations and manage to change their lives into a positive and go on to succeed.”
Thank you for not getting “inspo’ / motivation” from someone due to their “difficult situations”.
Girl who’s lived a difficult situation xoxo
First of all, for the last 17 years I have always been told; - “Oh Kylie, you are SUCH an inspiration”, “Kylie, you inspire me”, “KYLIE! You’re so inspiring” …yawn! Why? Cause’ I’m in a wheelchair?! How? Cause I can sit and breathe, but do it all in a wheelchair?!…That shit isn’t inspiring, I think it’s called LIFE sweetie pie. And, okay this is going to make me seem like a SUPER bitch but, since when was getting inspiration or motivation from someone who had a spinal cord injury even inspiring?? Did I miss that memo?! Like, I know people don’t mean it in a shitty way, but! I’m sorry, a life changing injury shouldn’t be an “inspiration!”.
Hence why I took to Kathleen’s post. It made me smile because I love that she admires rather than is inspired!!!
BUT, lets’ talk about cool shit now! Like my inspirations / motivations!? And to be honest; - because I’m such an “all – over – the – show” creative maniac, I get a lot of my inspo’ from all over the damn circus. Just the way I likey! I’m greedy and like to collect bits and bobs of all kinds of inspirational & motivational things. Everything being of positivity and fun and excitement (to me).
I believe inspiration & motivation can’t come from just one or two, not even three or four things, this is another reason I like to collect bits & bobs from all over the show. Have you ever tried it? Give it a go, you might surprise yourself he he!
OH. While I remember to type it; - I’ve had to really put my thinking cap on for these and I am struggling. I’m struggling because I want to write about every single inspo’ / motivating thing I have in my never-ending collection, BUT, I also want my readers to not fall asleep as well ha ha. I could write for years, but I wont subject any of you to that. Instead, I’ll subject you guys to just, five of my inspos’ and five of my motivators, sound good? GOOD! :)
She is my Motivator! Hands down. Yes, I’m probably being bias because of the obvious. But this self-less, beautiful human encourages me, supports me, reassures me, advisers me, guides me, teaches me and is just 100% all for me. She motivates me in ways I never thought possible. I have confidence in me that I never had before her. When I think I’ve failed or fallen off the bandwagon or just want to give up; - she’s right there either giving me hard loving truths or the push I need to get the fuck back up and start again! She’s helped me to not give a fuck and do dream big because I can succeed! ALWAYS.
These motivate the shit out of me. I’m a little bit competitive so I’m always up for a challenge. I don’t know what it is about them, but they reaaallyyy do send my “motivation” levels from zero to 1 zillion in a matter of seconds after being mentioned. I don’t even have to win or be the best. Challenges just give me Motivation! Full-stop.POD CASTS – I only listen to one persons’ pod casts and they are fucking brilliant to get motivation from! I shit you not! Joseph Clough is a fucking champ! His pod casts get my motivation onto cloud 9, Must be magical he he. Actually, he’s just, well, logic! He breaks shit down and both of my eyes open wide! Check him out, what’ve you got to lose :)
Organized chaos means a PERFECT KYLIE LIST, which means MOTIVATING FOR KYLIE!! As you guys probably know by now, I’m a list – maker. It just makes sense! If I can see all of the shit I’ve done, need to do, want to do, then I am one motivated little puppy! Each time I check something off, of the list, my motivation grows hungry more and more.
We should ALL preach this in life! It’ll grow hairs on ya tits! In an amazing kind of way!! I find, once I set my aims, my mind takes over and I make sure I get to my destination that is ahead of me. Nothing can stop me or get in my way. Mind over Matter motivates me to get the fuck over whatever it is that’s bugging me. It motivates me to pull my head out of my ass.
I don’t follow many but the ones I do follow, help give me inspiration to be creative, to be positive and I like to either try their ideas or bounce off them to create my own version.
I’m not going to single them out because I love them all. The inspiration coming from each of them is amazing, definitely love me some youtubers he he!
Oh god! I don’t know about you guys, but for me, MUSIC hits every body part, every emotion in me, be it good or bad. It’s intense, yet inspiring! It opens up my mind, shows and gives me the inspiration needed when my head is jam – packed with shit. Clears my mind when it’s being a bitch and blocking any thought or involvement to do with webby or bloggy! Can always count on good ole’ music for some good ole’ inspo’.
And that, my loves, brings me to the end of my DAY 3 task! I do hope you enjoyed the read. I struggled, yes! But I made it. Usually, I’d get fucked off and not carry on or I’d change direction completely and end up in Alaska, even though I’ve packed for Hawaii. So, I’ve actually surprised myself, HA!
Stay happy, Keep smiling :)
