First off, I got a wonderful motivational video from my Aunt Renee this afternoon. It’s a short clip that left me laughing, clouded my eyes, and helped me remember perspective. If you don’t mind missing out on about 6 minutes of sleep you’ll want to check this out before bed tonight: https://youtu.be/CgQkh1_cACE
Thanks again for sharing it Aunt Renee, that was awesome and greatly appreciated!
There were many things that seemed like they almost just fell into place today. At almost every turn there was positive progress and things just worked. Days like that feel great, especially when working remotely. While I’d love to take the credit for having great ideas, motivation, timing, and the like – I can’t.
As I’ve thought through the day and all of it’s successes one thing kept coming to mind. I am so blessed to be surrounded by others who motivate and inspire me on a daily basis. For reals, all of the great ideas today, all of the actions that helped, everything came from the inspiration of others. Recording a thank you video for a couple I’m thankful to have in my life? A teammate of mine who did that yesterday. Remembering to apologize when I make a mistake? Family who’ve done it the right way and mentors who’ve helped coach me. An idea to keep work fun and inspiring? Teammates, past teammates, mentors, and friends. Finding ways to be positive in difficult times? Great friends and family, wonderful teammates, and excellent business partners. Exercising even when I’d rather sleep in? Totally Becky. Behind everything that went well today was the face of someone else who inspired the idea or motivated the action.
Now that I think of it I should keep a separate blog list of the people who’ve motivated and inspired me throughout the day. What a list it would be! I still love the lesson Dad taught me of remembering who I got each tool from when I use it. I wonder how I could do the same with actions and ideas… That would really be something!
To all of you in my life who motivated and inspired me today – THANK YOU!!! My day was great because of your presence in my life. I’m eternally grateful for the blessing of your presence in my life. Thank you for being you, thank you for being awesome, and thank you for bringing extra joy into the world!
