Keep Going, You Are Almost There – Daily Shatzi: Monday Theme

Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! 🙂

Beginning of the week, time for a little #MondayMotivation!

Today’s Shatzi is for all the people out there who have been working hard and for a good long while on something dear to them. It could be anything, a professional project, a physical training, a college degree, a relationship, a creative artwork or a psychotherapy.

I know how hard it is to give your all, over and over again, even when it feels like you get almost nothing in return. I understand how frustrating it is to not see results after making a lot of efforts and I empathize with the feeling of helplessness, unfairness and loneliness you get when everyone seems to move forward with their lives, but you are still stuck in the very place you are trying so hard to leave.

Everyone wants to give up when it gets too hard, and don’t disabuse yourself, sometimes it does get too hard. When you pour your heart, your back and soul in a dream or a plan and the results are bitterly disappointing, what else is there to do, but give up and move on?


You can always take a break.

You can always take a deep breath, take some distance and rethink your strategy or your approach towards your project.

You can always try different ways to accomplish your dreams, take the long, hard, bumpy and unforgiving road instead of the easy one.

You can always ask for help.

It’s not over until it’s over, until you have exhausted every. single. opportunities and ideas there is, even if those ideas are not your own. There is no shame in getting help when you feel lost or stuck or down.

And finally, there is no shame in surrender, if nothing you did worked. I wrote about failure before and I will keep telling you all: Failure is not the end of the world. It’s not the end of you. Never.

Just don’t give up if you still have that small and stubborn voice in your head telling you: “It’s not the end.”

Song of the day

Lisa Miskovsky “Still Alive”

No I’ve changed
I have changed
Just like you
Just like you

For how long
For how long
Must I wait
I know there’s something wrong

Your concrete heart isn’t beating
And you tried to
Make it come alive

No shadows
Just red lights
Now I’m here to rescue you

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive and
I cannot apologize, no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive and
I cannot apologize, no

So silent
No violence
But inside my head
So loud and clear

You’re screaming
You’re screaming
Covered up with a smile I’ve learned to fear

Just sunshine
And blue sky
This is all we get
For living here

Come fire
Come fire
Let it burn and love come racing through

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive and
I cannot apologize, no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive and
I cannot apologize, no

I’ve learn to lose
I’ve learn to win
I turn my face against the wind

I will move fast
I will move slow
Take me where I have to go

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive and
I cannot apologize, no



  1. Love the Carl Sagan quote, Fantac! I have felt stuck many, many times in my life. You know what? Just like you, I have taken a break and searched for a different approach. Your Shatzis always hit close to home for me. ❤
