2017 has begun. A whole new year in which I am responsible for all choices in my life. I can make decisions that will either make me feel better or make me feel worse. I can dwell on my past or look forward to my future. I can feel sorry for myself or be proud of myself. I can encourage others or bring them down. I can live my life or I can merely exist. I can be a friend, an acquaintance, or a deterrent. I can be a teacher or I can be a student. I can be a motivator or a discourager. These decisions are totally my choice.
Each Monday on my blog, I will choose to be a motivator. I will do my best to forget that I struggle with depression. I will strive to turn off all negative thoughts each Monday. I will try to fill your world (and my world) with encouragement, laughter, love, and life. I will begin with Mondays and pray that by the end of 2017, each day of the week will be a day of inspiration to each of us. Come along with me and let’s make 2017 the year in which we changed not only our own lives, but those of others.
As we start this journey of motivating ourselves and others in 2017, I invite you to watch the following video from 2016 on Self-Motivation. I found it to be quite enlightening. What do you think about it? Possible? Attainable? Worth it?
Ready? Set. Let’s Go! Let’s make 2017 a fantastic year.
