I saw a computer wallpaper the other day.
This wallpaper has inspired me. It spoke to me.
This wasn’t some pithy quote, or a proverb, or a saying. It’s too short to be anything except generic.
I’ve written before about how I often feel like I’m lazy.
My nature is that of laziness. It’s something I’ve been fighting for over a decade now and it isn’t something that will get any easier.
Lately I feel that has been amplified. Concentrating is hard, so I often don’t do it. This aids in my creativity, but is also a liability. It hasn’t affected what I need to do so far, but there’s always the danger it could.
I don’t want to describe this like some sort of epiphany, that I saw an image online and “from that day forward, I was forever changed!” No. But that message is apart of my soul now, and I’m taking it to heart. An obvious and much-needed change is my sleeping patterns, which I’m struggling to correct. But I know I can win. I can still change.
“Work Hard, Dream Big.”
That is not a reflection of who I currently am. It’s a window into what I want to be. At the end of my life, that is what should be said about me.
I want that on my tombstone, but I’ll have to earn it.
