I feel like I’m always there to motivate everyone; my husband, children, and friends. I’m drained and feel like I have nothing left. There’s no one there to be my cheerleader and I feel no motivation to accomplish anything.

Dearest Pom Pom,
Sorry Hun, but that sounds a lot like excuses through a megaphone. You’re a grown up. Grown ups have shit to do. So do it. You shouldn’t need some surrogate mommy in the shape of a husband, child or friend standing behind you encouraging you every step of the way.
Need motivation? Well we can’t think of a better reason than to just be motivated for yourself.
We subscribe to a kick in the ass at the starting line and reserve our hugs for the finish line. Are your feelings a little hurt? Good. Anger is a great motivator. Pick one goal. Accomplish it. Remember, “Done is Better than Perfect“. You may want to check out our Sage Wisdom: The Recipe For a Great Day. Then write back to us. We’re going to be so proud of you.
