Motivation

It is good to know these motivational pieces are reaching people.  Thank you for your kind words.  Thoughts that invoke a desire for positive change.  That is my current definition of motivation.  Whether it is to change my thoughts, actions, or my physical state.  To write these daily pieces forces me to constantly look outside myself for experiences.  Experiences that make me reflect on my thoughts and actions.  I believe our thoughts and actions are rooted in experience.  We then limit what we see by what we think we are seeing based on those past emotions to experiences.  What I’m trying to do is experience routine interactions for the first time.  Hence, being outside of myself. It is not that my thoughts and actions are fundamentally wrong, I just know that you and I are capable of much more.  We can be more compassionate and understanding.  We can see beautiful things for the first time instead of being blinded by our fears and prejudices.  Finding a balance is my goal.  Past experiences can keep us safe.  They can also keep us chained up.  Be willing to change, to become awesome.
