Motivation

Happy Sunday my friends. How is everyone doing? I usually find motivation and inspiration anywhere, just going about my daily life brings me a lot of ideas and thoughts that come to my head. It sometimes seems that everywhere I turn, every situation I’m in, every person I meet, could end up being my next idea for a blog post.

Motivation for me also comes from other people. Perhaps my biggest motivator is you all and the kind people that keep telling me to push and pursue my passion of writing and blogging. I’ve loved writing since I was a child. When I was younger it would take a while for the ideas to come to me, but now as an adult, the ideas keep flowing. I love the feeling of sitting down with a pen and putting my thoughts on paper, I also love to sit down with my laptop and type away.

Whatever makes you feel motivated, keep seeking it. Keep pushing towards your goals and your passions. You were meant to pursue the things that light your soul on fire!

Feeling Cozy

Fall is my absolute favorite season and it’s almost here! I am reminded of the beautiful leaves that change, the cool crisp air, the stillness that takes place before winter hits, the fall festivities and holidays, it’s just a magical time of year just like winter.

This morning was very crisp and I got up and put on some heavy clothing and fuzzy socks and I was in Heaven! There is such comfort found in being wrapped up and cozy, such a feeling of bliss to relax and feel warm. I love to curl up in a blanket with a hot cup of tea, or coffee. After a long hot summer, the cooler temperatures are always welcome and after the cold of winter we will be longing for the warm summer days again. What is your favorite season and what do you enjoy about it!?

Familiar

We tend to seek out and desire what is familiar and safe to us. Of course an adventure, or spontaneity is nice every now and then, but for most of us, we are fond of the safe and familiar.

What keeps us tied to the safe and the known? Maybe it’s our love of things that make us feel whole, loved, comforted, maybe it’s fear of the unknown. Whatever it may be, take time to enjoy the familiar things in life, they will lift your spirits especially during the times we live in now. Surround yourself with people and places that feel like home!

Happiness

Life is going to take us down many roads, some will be smooth-sailing, some detours, and some roadblocks. No matter what life throws at us, we have the power to look at the situation in the best way possible. This is not easy of course, but can really help create more happiness in your life.

I am the kind of person that needs a goal, something to work towards, something to look forward to in order to be happy. I suppose many, or even most of us are this way. Find something that sets your soul on fire and makes you passionate about life, find something that makes you get out of bed in the morning and that makes you look forward to coming home in the evenings. Happiness in life is one of life’s greatest treasures. Get involved in something new to break the monotony and bring some joy and excitement into your life! I wish you all the happiness in the world and all of your heart’s desires.
