Why You Feel Drained

Every wonder why despite the fact you may get eight hours of sleep per night, workout, eat as clean as you can, but still feel tired as hell when you wake up? You don everything you can to increase your energy so that you can be more productive but nothing seems to work, nothing seems to get you out of the funk you seem to be stuck in.

What if I told you that it’s not your body that’s tired but your spirit that is drained?

What do I mean by that? Well, glad you asked!

What I mean is that when you are a truth seeker, like myself, but the life you live is a lie (i.e. working a 9 to 5 job you hate), you are at a point of misalignment and that puts a strain on you not only mentally, but emotionally and spiritually.

See, when you know that you would rather be doing a million other things than working your 9 to 5 job and you have no choice but to go to a place you really don’t want to go to and deal with a lot of bonehead, stupid shit, it drains you mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Everything inside you is telling you to quit, to walk away, to leave, but the only reason you don’t is because you have ills to pay and you need to survive, which leaves you feeling stuck in a situation you feel like you can’t get out of.

Let’s talk about wage for a second. . .

If you make $15/hour and you work 6 hours a day for five days, that’s 30 hours a week, right? Which means you make about $96 a day (before taxes). Account for taxes and that $96 is reduced to at least $76, even a little less. So you’re throwing away time that you will never get back for the cost of some shoes, a shirt, an outfit, a fucking blender for crying out loud.

Ever thought that an hour of your life is worth more than $15? Ever thought even thirty minutes of your life was worth more than $7.50? The price of some snacks from the corner store?

I know I have, and now that I’m thinking about it, I’m pissed!

See, when you know the truth but live a lie it drains and kills your spirit like nothing else. You have to meditate, eat healthy, exercise, journal, and whatever else you like to do just to remain sane. If you didn’t do that stuff, you’d probably kill yourself, and we have enough men killing themselves as it is.

Stop breaking your neck for a job that would replace you in a week after you drop dead.

Stop investing your best into a job that doesn’t give a fuck about you.

Stop giving your best and most productive hours away to something that has nothing to do with your goals.

Stop giving your all to something that only gives you crumbs in return.

Alright, that’s my spiel. Til next week!
