What is motivation? Motivation is a need or desire that directs behavior.  I believe my true motivations are based on other factors. I feel that my deepest motivations are doing what I want to do, making people proud, and the biggest one is probably being remembered. Motivations are a big impact on everyone life, and everyone has different motivations.

I do what I want to do when I want to do it. I usually say what I like and think about what I said after I say it. I try to live my life with no regrets because over the past 14 years of my life, I’ve come to realize how fragile it is. I want to live an amazing life so that when I’m old I can tell people of all the crazy things I did. When I’m old I want to feel as if my mind and soul are still young from all the memories of things I did growing up. I know I’ll be okay if I make some mistakes, I just want to have fun while I still can.

I want to make my friends and family proud of what I do. I also want to make myself proud of what I do. Whenever I’m about to do something really crazy I try to think of what my family and friends would say if they were with me. Sometimes this kind of thinking just leads into more trouble because I have very wild friends and family. Most of the time I at least attempt to make good decisions for them even if I don’t care what happens to me.

When I have lived a long and beautiful life and it’s time for me to pass on, I want to be remembered as someone great. I don’t want to  be remembered as someone who was scared of everything, who never took any risks, who live a quiet safe boring life. I pray that I’m remembered as someone wild, fun, caring, funny. I want to be remembered as the girl who wasn’t afraid of anything and could do just about everything. I dream that when I’m old I can tell my children, and my children’s children stories of all my crazy adventures and inspire them to go on some of their own.

Motivations are what give people the will to live. They can be small things like having lunch with friends, or they can be big things like having your own children. Everyone has different beautiful things that inspire them.
