Monday Morning Motivation
We have many differences from each other. Physical; we may look like people in our family or have similar features of another but there is no one that looks exactly like you do. Talents: we each have talents and gifts that are unique to us. Emotional; we have all been through different experiences and we give our own meaning to the events in our lives. Intellectual; we all learn at different levels and choose to focus on learning different things. Spiritual; we all have our own beliefs about ourselves, about life and the world.
Despite all these differences we are actually more alike than we are different. We were all born into this world and some day we will all pass from this plane. We all have basic human needs. We all need love & connection, certainty, variety and significance; when we have those we need growth and contribution. Let us love one another, learn from one another, respect one another, appreciate each other and live peacefully on this glorious planet together.
Over the last 2 years each one of us and the world have been forced to rethink how we do things. I joke that we have all been sent to our room to think about how we have been behaving; how we think, what we do, how we treat each other, what our priorities are etc. I hope these last 2 years have taught us all at least this one important lesson: Life is PRECIOUS! It is often fleeting and it can be so fragile, sometimes ending when you least expect it.
My cousin and a friend both recently passed away unexpectedly. The deaths were shocking really and I thought about all the lives that have been lost these last 2 years. There is sadness in the losses and sadness in the inability to come together to hold services for them and support the living. I hope through all this sadness our hearts have been opened. I hope we have learned how to really appreciate one another. Hold those you love a little tighter, express your love more often, appreciate those you love more and give thanks for the precious gift of life. I hope we have all learned just how precious Life really is.
No matter what has gone before in your life. No matter what is going on now, Never Give Up. Hang in there. You have come through tough times before. You have learned from every experience. You have grown through the years. You have more knowledge, you have more wisdom, and you have more experiences with every new day.
It may seem like there are mountains to climb but you have taken many steps before and all you have to do is continue to move forward. Continue to take one step at a time. Continue to learn from each experience. Continue to grow from each lesson life teaches you. Continue to climb the mountain.
You have a depth of love that is unlimited within. You have a wealth of wisdom to draw from. You have new opportunities to learn and grow from every day. You got this!
A new year begins, a time to begin anew and plan for a better year. A year that can take you higher, bring you new adventures and present you with new opportunities. It’s a great time to imagine the possibilities of what your life can become. What do you want your year to look like?
Take a moment right now to write down your wildest dreams for the year. Use all your senses and your imagination and really feel everything coming to be. Pour energy into what you are imagining and writing down. The written word has power so make sure you take the time to really explore your heart’s desires and write in the present tense as if everything has happened. Be open to your potential, be open to your unlimited possibilities and let your spirit sing! Make a plan and do one thing today that will take you in the direction of your dreams.
