Motivation


I've learned two very vital things about motivation. First paramount lesson, was coming to finally understand, that as much as I sit waiting for motivation, it just doesn't happen. I have to get out there and do whatever it is I am wanting to get motivated to do. That's when the motivation comes.

Second lesson, I think for me is the most important; turning it all over to the Creator in prayer. Asking the Creator to help me. Very simple really, not easy when you are struggling for motivation. Prayer helps me to let it go and the struggle seems to vanish.

Being gentle with myself, taking care of my health, avoiding negative self-talk; these are all just as important in knowing and understanding my strength and weakness. Acceptance of these and understanding what I can and cannot change. It's all about balance.

Guess I've had enough coffee....Namaste
