What Motivates You?

How do you stick with a routine or goal? Or simply maintain your perspective? One of my favorite tips, so far, from the New Year-New You Challenge at spirit1053.com is, “to stop and look at the stars, once in awhile.” It reminds me to “smell the roses;” to count my blessings. Like, reflecting on my fondest experiences with my mother, on the 1-year anniversary of her passing. Or seeing my wife and 2 daughters wave from the breakfast-nook window as I back out of the driveway; the youngest, straining to peer over the top of the sill. So grateful when I am present enough to notice and enjoy such things.  No doubt, there is a wealth of simple richness right in front of you to savor, too!
