Mid Week Motivator: Motivation To Keep Going

I started posting these mid week motivators because at times getting through the week can be hard. Getting to Wednesday can often seem near impossible, forget about Friday or even the weekend. Or what is your Friday depending on your schedule. My hope is for you to find them helpful and encouraging.

Getting through the week, heck even a day can be rough. Just the realization that it is only ______ can be enough to suck the motivation and intention to do what we want to do right out of us. Maybe it is a packed schedule or waiting to get to a certain day because X is going to happen.

Confession time, I too need these mid week motivators. I need to remind myself to keep going in pursing my goals. No matter have tired I am or lacking confidence in where I am. So these are helpful for me and I hope they are for you too.

After all who could not use a little encouragement during the week?

I’ve Been Nominated!!

I have been plugging away at this blog for a while now ( just over a year, first at Blogger and now here). Today my dear friend and fellow blogger Janet ( check out her blog on Living with Anxiety and Panic Disorder www.livingwithanxietyandpanicdisorder.wordpress.com ) and Honest Reviews, great stuff on both!) nominated me for a Leibster Award! First thank you Janet for nominating me for this, even though I admit I did have to do some research about it.


This award motivates bloggers to work hard

It provides exposure to small bloggers

It helps to build god relationships with other bloggers

It is an opportunity to share more about you with others

It is easy and good fun

And now for Janet’s questions for me.


1-Why did you decide to start blogging?


After getting healthy I had people approaching me about how I did it and decided blogging would be the best platform.


2- What is your biggest dream in life?


I hope to be able to support myself fully by writing within five years.


3- If you could have dinner with one person living or dead, who would it be and why?


This is hard but I honestly think a meal with Audrey Hepburn would be amazing. She lead such an interesting and loving life and having a conversation with her over a good meal would just be wonderful!


4- If you could change one thing about your, what would it be?


Nothing. I am exactly where I need to be at this point in my life.


5- Have you ever fired a gun?

Neither, I have exactly the amount of intelligence and looks I can handle hahahaha!



7-What is your favorite joke?


That is really silly, Why six afraid of seven? Because seven eight nine!

None come to mind. Anytime someone puts the time and effort into a gift then how can it be bad?

Not living a full life.

Loaded question! EVERYTHING!

I only have two that I would recommend taking the time to read and even follow. One belongs to Janet Mickley who nominated me and the other is a young lady who has begun to follow my blog.
