It has been a while, but I am happy to dive into this New Year 2018 with Five Minute Friday and this Friday’s prompt is motivate!
From the moment I read the word, my mind rushed to the things that I have made my focus this year.
1 – Getting my healthy back. I begin with the Whole30 plan. This is the one way I know to detox the garbage out of my body and mind and get myself on a steady track to better health. Not the best health, not massive weight loss. With a thyroid condition, you go for what you can get. My motivation. Well, my niece is getting married and she did ask me to be in the wedding. Bridesmaid dresses are horrors as it is. I definitely do not want to be house coating it. Just kidding. Still it didn’t hurt as a motivator. Mostly it is I want to feel better. I think a good healthy eating plan will help my whole body.
2 – Writing. Hence I am back on the saddle here which is really one of my favorite places for writing and encouragement (love FMF). My motivation. I have written before I knew words. I drew pictures and told my mom stories to go with them. It has been in my heart, but fear seized control of my mind. My motivation is NO MORE FEAR.
3 – Get to know my new state. We are in Michigan now and the first four months were an exercise in waiting on the Lord. My hope now is to take time to get to know this lovely state. This frozen and lovely state. Okay, maybe just Northern Michigan is frozen. I have to do it on a budget, but my husband has a pretty good list going. I am motivated by my love for my husband and knowing this will be fun for him and I love being on the road! An added bonus is my husband is now working at the radio station with me so he has his weekends back! God is good!
I hope whatever motivates you will spur you on to your goals today and every day. I am glad I wrote this post. I believe it is going to give me an extra boost.
If you want to join in Five Minute Friday, it is never too late (I often wrote on Sundays because I had no internet in the woods) so join in!
