Saturday Midday Motivation

No, this isn't a new segment, or a new name for an old segment, it's just that this week the motivating happened to fall on a Saturday, and all I could think of was "Saturday Night Fever". I really shouldn't be that old. Anyway, on with the proverbial song and dance that is quotes, motivation, phrases, and what not.

"I feel like I need everyone else way more than they need me"
Sometimes I think like this, sometimes I don't. I help a lot of people and there are a lot of people who might feel they need me, but there's also a lot of people who I need, and who I would be nothing without.  I probably shouldn't think that way, that there will always be me even if it's just me, but eh. I'm tired.

"If you don't understand my silence, how will you understand my words?"
This one can get ya thinking a bit. I've probably thought this without realizing it before, and it hits home with me.
"Everything will be okay in the end, if it's not okay, it's not the end"
I really like to say this to people, I think it's one of those that I had also thought of, or at least thought of something similar. If you want some things I came up with myself, then check out some of my very earliest posts, which includes my first post to this effect, and it has OC.

"There's always a little truth behind every "just kidding". A little knowledge behind every "I don't know", a little emotion behind every "I don't care" and a little pain behind every "It's ok"
Ahhh now this one really did hit me deep. The people who really know me often ask me what's wrong if I just say "I'm fine" or "I'm okay". I mean, sure, there are times when I'm genuinely like that, but I'm also secretive enough with my thoughts, emotions and problems to never talk about them, and so they ask just in case. Usually just asking me get's me to talk about it, but that's because of my complete inability to not answer questions. I love questions.

And as a special treat, a fourth one! Normally I only post 3, so as to preserve my collection, but things lately have really made me say this a lot more, or at least think it, so I think it is come for me to share it.
"Be the difference you want to see in the world"
Don't spend all your time complaining about how things should be different, be different yourself. If you find yourself thinking that people don't know how to raise their kids right, then make sure you raise yours right, if you think that people are throwing away their votes, then make sure you don't throw yours away. If there is something you wish to see changed, then try to do it, try to become it, yourself.

See you next time!

  2. Be the difference you want to see in the world...
    Meh, not my kind of phrase. As a one-man-group there really isn't much you can change except for the things directly connected to you. Wish my effective radius was much, much bigger than that.

  3. "Be the difference you want to see in the world"
    Mahatma Gandhi, am I correct?
    I always liked that one, mainly because I value self improvement, sometimes, above everything else even.

  4. @Inverse I'm pretty sure it was Gandhi, he's responsible for some things I really take to heart. That would be one of them.

    I also 'connected' with this one; it put me in a very thoughtful mood. That normally never leader to happy conclusions.
