What keeps me motivated

in #life4 years ago

I recently received a call from my sister informing me about my mothers current conditions, so told me that she hasn't been feeling well for sometime now and that my mom didn't want me to know because she didn't want to worry me. I can't tell you how that made me feel; you see my mom and sister lives in Haiti while I'm here in the states so it's hard to know what's really going on unless they tell me.

So because I could not see her for myself I was a little worried, I started thinking to myself my mother is getting up in age and all the what if's played in my head. So I called and spoke to my mom because I just wanted to hear her voice and she told me that she was doing fine even though I could hear in her voice that she wasn't feeling well. So I'm here in the states and my mom is back home in Haiti so aside from paying her medical bills I was left with only two choices; stress out about something I can't control or have full faith in the Lord that my mom would be ok. Let's just say that I was not about to stress; I prayed to God about it and I put my moms health and life in his hands.

So when I get a question like what keeps me motivated my honest answer would have be my faith, my mom; fiancé; sibling and myself of course. I have to work to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. My fiancé is a good woman and my biggest supporter so I have to provide for her. Knowing that I have to put in work because I have lives depending on me motivate me everyday of my life.
As for my mother God came through as always, she's doing so much better, getting stronger and stronger each day.


wow, what a good story line and a source of inspiration. Faith in the lord can keep you going however adding it with hardwork, optimism, love and good spirit, then the sky is the limit. Wish your mum well and more success to you. Upvoted.

Hey Thanks for the vote, and I totally agree that family is the most important thing you have to think. I lost my second sister and it is like I lost a huge part of my universe. It is not a bad thing to show your worry more to your family...man... best regards..

hope your family is doing good. nice post.

My son is in California and I am in Bangkok. He is not well and I have all my health issues too. We worry each other sick. Every night I give it up to God, but that does not always stop the worry. I know we are in the right place here at Steemit for support and friends. You and your mother are in my prayers.

What great motivation :)

I don't have a lot to give but I am sending you some STEEM. I hope this helps with your mother's medical expenses.

I am not a religious person. I have travelled extensively and have good friends from many religions.

As long as you have a good heart and your religion drives you to make positive decisions for both yourself the greater good, I am supportive (and even envious) of your faith.

I don't know what happens when we die, what I do know is we are all in this together. Right here, right now! We can choose to argue about what happens next, or we can do our best towards creating heaven on earth.

Steemit.com is a start.

Thank you so much may God bless you

Thanks for the reminder. It's so easy to get carried away and do things our way - when it is so much better to give it all to He who died for us. His yoke is easy!.

Stay blessed.

God bless you! Hope that your mom will get better soon. Try to write more. And I will follow and upvote you.

Hello Goodaytraders. I follow you on social networks. I discovered a beautiful video that you put on Youtube: kijan pou fe lajan sou intenet (1). I was soon interested.

But there is something I need from you: I would like to be part of your community / or another, my steemit username is @sonysainto. I do not even have a single follower.

to what extent can you help me?

I's always hard to be apart from your parents especially if one of them is not in good health. Put your faith in god and he will hear you and help you! All the best to you, your mum and your family.

Our prayers are always with your mother. God bless her
