Awaken Your Day - July 31 - Are You Rechargeable?

"Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left."

- Hubert Humphrey

There is a weekend on the horizon.
One more day of work...just one more day.

I have two things to consider today, both with the same question to follow.

Oh my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts.
We often encounter someone, or ourselves, that is at this point in the week, somewhat drained.
They wonder if they have enough energy to enjoy the time they get to themselves.
"Where is all that energy I had at the beginning of the week? I felt like 100%!"
Well... let's see...

Work related stress - 20%

Household chores- 10%

Raising children - 15%

Finances and planning - 20%

World News - 5%

Daily unnecessary stress ( traffic, line ups ) - 10%

Left over positive energy to build momentum on - 20%

The question is .... Are You Rechargeable?

"Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left."

Example number 2:

You have a goal. A dream. Something you believe in and are working on. You started with energy and passion. 110%. Where is it now? Why can you not keep it going? But...But...But...

Let's see.

Not surrounded by like minded people - 20%

Pessimistic attitudes - 20%

Fear - 25%

Distracted or unfocussed passion - 20%

That maybe leaves you ( and I, and so many like us ) with 25% Belief in yourself from where you started. For many, that is being generous.

The question is ... Are You Rechargeable?

Along the way, and along the day we face so many actions and influences that nibble away on our passions and energies. Call them distractions, call them excuses - it does not overly matter. What we need to stay in charge of is our awareness to this life fact. Some of us are in better control of our energies and some of us are still learning how to get to that level. We stand together.

Red Rover Red Rover...we call Inspiration over.

Are you Rechargeable? Do you slowly give up each time you take inventory of your Passion/ Energy level? Are you at a point where you come around the bend for another try but this time you are only starting with 80% total? Then 65%? Then wondering why you try?

Awareness, acceptance or adaptability to setbacks, control over those things that we know will continue to attempt to drain our energy. These are your tools. Don't act surprised ... just use your tools.

Are you tired?
Are you a Victim ... or a Victor?

Are You .... Rechargeable?

Good morning.
All systems go.
