What motivates you?

Many of us need to really be “moved” to be motivated to change the direction of our lives. For some of us, that could be a devastating event and for others, they are just naturally curious. What gets you going? For me, it is the internal drive to improve myself. If I am unsure how to do something or I am unaware of how to do something, I usually research it and try it. Sometimes, I realize I don’t like whatever task I am doing, but I learned something in the process. If we go day in and day out, eating relatively the same food, falling into a similar pattern for the day, and never really looking to learn something new, then we get bored. I used to think I got bored of the job I was doing and then needed to find a new one. I have since realized, it is not the job, it was my life. I needed to grow my soul and cultivate my skills.  I like to shake things up and throw myself a curve ball. Doing that keeps my brain and my body motivated to do more. I know I need more of nature and becoming one with nature. I used to be so distracted by social media and not paying as much attention to who is real in my life. I am happy things have recently become even more clear. I have to say, life in your 40’s is divine.  What gets you motivated?

The Lord is good.

We all go through tough times in our lives. It is through these times we are truly tested. Our character is tested, our soul is tested.  It is in these times that we can lose ourselves or find who we really are. I have always said that even if you are stuck on the moon, use your manners. It is easy to allow our feelings to dictate our behavior. This is especially when it is crucial to step back and be quiet. Think about the situation and what is being done to you. What is your reaction going to be? Take the high road and don’t stoop to the low levels of those hurting you. Don’t allow yourself to be walked on but do it in a way that you strengthen your soul not lose it.  Give true thanks to God and he will give you grace if you ask for it. Be open to receiving it.
