As I sit here in the living room on this chilly Sunday afternoon gathering my thoughts for the Monday Motivation, I couldn’t help but to simply tell God “Thank you”. This time last year I was just living life being content with things just as they were; I would go to work, come back home and that was it. Now here I am flourishing in an amazing hobby that gives me peace and that I love doing. This reminds me that there is more work for me to do. If you’re reading this right now, then you too are among the many who still have work to do as well. When I say ‘work’ I mean that God has specific plans for each of us and it’s up to us to tap into it. This could be spiritually, mentally or emotionally. If you have been blessed to see yet another unpromised day, that is your daily reminder that He (God) is not done with you yet. If it’s a situation that you’re unhappy with, change it. If you feel like there’s something else you need to be doing, do it. Often times we stand in our own way of happiness in fear of what someone else may think, or just in fear of failure. But if it doesn’t work then at least you know you tried and you can move on with the satisfaction that you gave it a fair chance. So let’s start the day off with gratitude and a mind and heart that are open to change and ready for success.
