Motivation Is That Special Little Spark Of Life You've Been Missing

If you don't have fun doing whatever you do, you're doing it wrong.

Motivation Is That Special Little Spark Of Life You've Been Missing
Maddy Harkness

Motivation: the single word itself even sounds difficult and makes people want to be lazy. Sometimes it's more satisfying to lay in bed and stuff your face with Oreos while watching Friends. That's great and all, but you need to do what's good for YOU. If you're not having fun or laughing throughout the day, you need to change what you're doing.

Motivation is the necessary key ingredient in so many aspects of life. Whether it be learning, working, or activity, motivation needs to be there! I guarantee you will feel better if you put even just a little more effort and pride into your actions and work. You're a masterpiece.

I've recently learned that motivation is so necessary during my college career. Everyone says that they will be motivated to do what they love and get things done...but are they actually going to do that? In most cases, definitely not. Honestly, I thought I was motivated last year while taking my general education requirements. I got a good GPA and felt successful. During the past few weeks, being in my Linguistics class and my Spanish class, I have felt so passionate about what I am studying. It makes me so happy. I get excited to go to class, and even do homework. I feel truly and genuinely motivated.

Motivation brings out that grit and drives in you, so go after it! If you're not in love with every day of your life, please change something, even one thing. It's not worth it to dwell on the past. I know going through tough times can really take a toll on you, but please go chase and capture what you enjoy. You know what you want, so go get what you want.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
