Motivation Monday

Not your typical “motivation Monday” post…

What motivates me? What should motivate me? Should I be motivated? Do I need motivation?

What if there’s absolutely NOTHING to reach for? What if “life” has lost it’s zeal, gusto, purpose, motivation?

If a person motivates me, what happens when that person moves, leaves, disappoints?

If a project motivates me, what happens if it fizzles or you lose interest or there is simply no need for it?

No motivation…no desire to even get up. Getting up and putting one foot in front of the other is quiet an accomplishment. Unless there is stiffness and pain, then the steps are more like shuffles. Each step or shuffle is a choice, a decision.


There is that smile on a loved ones face when a childhood dream is fulfilled. There are times of laughter. Times of enjoying a scrumptious meal. Times of being foolish and laughing and losing yourself in that moment. Precious moments that would have been lost had you not made that choice to “put one foot in front of the other”.

Today, I’d say, “THAT motivates me!”
