Reflections--Motivation--004  We at CrossDove Writer and Wheezing Away have asked this question before, but it has been a while so we will ask it once again…….

What is your motivation?  Is it the same each and every day or does it change depending on things like your mood, your emotions, your finances or whatever.

When you have an illness like COPD, it too will reflect on your motivation in nearly each and everything you do.

When you peck away at that keyboard in front of you, whether sharing with a friend or the public – is your motivation in the proper place?

I always find it disheartening when I see postings for which people are whining or dishing on others.  If you follow Facebook you can find daily rants about others especially when any discussion involves politics.

Now I do agree there are times and places to get “things off your shoulders” as we would call it, but even then what are your true motivations.

Are you just letting off steam, sharing an emotion, releasing a frustration or are you trying to attack a situation, a place or a person?

Even in my keyboard word adventures I will on occasion release some emotions, frustrations or aggravations; but I also try real hard not to single out places or people directly because that never ends well.

Yes, those of us with COPD at times feel the need to vent about the frustrations, hurts, loneliness and anger which we have to fight through at times as part of dealing with an endless run of breathing problems.

But do remember, the one fault of the socializing on the internet is that it hangs out there forever and is available to eventually be seen or read by more eyes than we can imagine.

So the lesson is – when hammering away at the keyboard be sure and know your motivation and intentions and make sure they will not be anything for which you will regret in a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a month, a year or a lifetime.

As always – if you or anyone you know have any symptoms involving lung and breathing functionality, and they linger over and over while disrupting a lifestyle – then please ask questions and get it checked out.

Remember always that without breathing a person is without life itself.

With that I bid to all – smiles, prayers, blessings and steady breathing – Mr. William.
