Keeping Your Drive & Motivation Alive!

For the longest, I have decided that I  would try to find out the secrets of being and staying motivated. I studied the lives of  the deep thinkers , contemplators and friends and mentors to determine what the find keeps them above water, and OFTEN it involves staying focused and on purpose, and what makes you happy. Hence, the name of my first blog – “Blessedness of Being “; located here .”

I also  observed this amazing blog by  Karen Walrond at Chookooloonks.com and Deidra Riggs at: http://www.deidrariggs.com And their writing and projects inspire.

You will learn so much from these women, because they take risks and determine to do things they didn’t think they could, they did too much, and had to scale back, or they do things JUST FOR THEMSELVES , because it was necessary for their existence. Self-care can be so rewarding and  so  self-validating , that it’s cool. I have learned in my life that without self care,  I am spent, used up and of no VALUE to anyone.

Here’s what I found in my study:

1. Staying motivated requires a review of your personal goals and evaluation.

2. Mark and cart your progress  n order to notice your  progress!

3. Watching and reading motivational stories or speeches. * ( http://www.Tedtalk.com ) is an excellent site.

4. Eliminate your distractions, and  stay offline, set dates with yourself and plan your productivity.

5. Join a group of other motivated life pursuers and persons working towards goals of self-development, & productivity and allow their energy fuel you toward your goals.

I decided a long time ago, I wanted to be of VALUE to everyone’s paths I cross.

This is my motivation, and I choose to  be actively pursuing this goal, and  being an example of  a healthy existence and  a  role model for  good self are in order to reach my dreams.

It makes sense to  work hard for what you desire, and to be able to enjoy it, Make certain you have a paradigm and mental clarity for good  emotional, mental, spiritual and  social self-care.

For the Love of Intuitionđź’•

I read this in a very cool article in the huffingtonpost and you should too!

  1. They listen to that inner voice.
  2. They observe everything.
  3. They value solitude.
  4. They mindfully let go of negative emotions.
  5. They connect deeply with others.

Do any of these resound, with you?

I believe women who strive for intuitive sense, find value in most things in life.

Listening to yourself is the first step to being “authentically your.”

Watchfulness involves a mindset, but also an awareness.

In silence, you hear your thoughts .

Through connection, we blossom.

Utilize all of these mottos as fuel for your future.

đź’ś Owning Your Values.

I’m just here this morning thinking  Sisters,thinking about two things:

Your Values are embedded deep within you.

Owning Your Values was the topic of our first Mentor MySister meeting . We first began with a ritual of cleansing by letting go of a few things we brought to the table that were weighing us down. Some of those weights were silent and we brought cleansing waters to them, with a libation activity.   We poured and we cleansed, we poured, and we let go, we poured and we released.

Then we spoke about Values  we appreciated and we let those same values embrace our goals for the future. We placed them into expressed intentions,  and then we  expressed gratitude for what we have in our lives, currently .

We left with the question:

What season are you in currently?  

 

The season is changing soon from fall to winter… But recently shifted from summer to fall. We are half way through this season…

What will be your reflection on this season as change enters in?

Will you allow for change?

Will you be accountable to yourself, your future, your goals, your life?

Will you allow your Sisters to encourage you in accountability for it?

Moving forward with change and acceptance,  owning your values are the best gift you can give to yourself.
