Times are trying right now, and there are moments for a lot of people where the future can feel tenebrous, hopeless, and lonely. Especially as we’re now heading towards a Christmas with potential lockdown restrictions.
I thought it might be nice to create a thread for folks to share things that inspire, motivate, or simply uplift their mood, so that in a moment of hopeless someone may stumble across and find something to give them cause to keep going, to remain hopeful, and to not feel alone. These can be anything from a quote to a tv show. And I think now is a good time for it.
I’ll start with a few that have helped me personally cope with difficult moments in life, and inspired me to get to where I am today.
I love Taraji, watching her go from strength to strength since her role in Person of Interest. I love her story, and it taught me that you’re never to old follow or achieve your dreams in life.
Steve Jobs was my hero throughout much of my life, and his impact on the world directly impacted mine for the better. Many of his speeches and interviews motivated me to get to where I am in life today, but it’s this particular one that I feel is the most important thing I’ve learned.
Good Witch is just a show that just makes me feel happy when I watch it, regardless of the mood I’m in prior.
This one is so self explanatory that it’s almost cliche. It brought the world together right when it needed it the most, and celebrates our differences. The message of the film, and the title song is quite clear. I watch it every Christmas now.
Please share anything that uplifts, inspires, or motivates you.
