I’ve been following the Blogging 201 course on WordPress and Monday’s assignment struck a chord with me: Today’s assignment: create a recurring blogging event on your site, and/or make plans to attend a blogging conference. I’ve been thinking of ways to strengthen the Motivational theme of this blog and the assignment gave me courage to take a leap of faith and add a weekly event to my blog. Since this blog is called Mirth and Motivation, I thought it would be a good idea to start the week with a motivational quote or two. So welcome to Motivation Mondays! I invite you to jump in and add your Motivation Mondays post and I’d do a round-up of them for us and others to enjoy.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity…” Melody Beattie
Inspiration: Dig Deeper For Gratitude…
A month ago, I signed up to join a group of bloggers eager to spend the month of May writing on the subject of gratitude. I was looking forward to it as a way to get back to my love for blogging. In case you haven’t noticed, my blogging has been sporadic at best … and silent for stretches of time. It would be easy to blame good old Writer’s Block but that would be untrue.
I’ve written daily in my silence and written drafts that remain unpublished. The culprit is health and life’s demands. When we are faced with such challenges, everything stops and what truly matters steps forward. For me, family, friends, faith, wellness are far more important than a laundry list of How to Blog… when/why/what. With this has come acceptance. We can’t move forward until we accept what is and make peace with it. How does acceptance play out in your life?
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” Lao Tzu
Reflections: Nature Does Not Hurry… – “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
We spend time worrying…
Rushing here and there in pain
Wondering … what if?
Wondering … what if
The sky would fall if we stop
The sun and moon too…
“Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.” Rachel Carson
Reflections: Nature Does Not Hurry – “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” John Muir
Sky, sun, moon won’t fall
‘Cos nature does not hurry
Pause and breathe… slowly
We prance round like deer
Heading straight to those headlights
Thinking… what happened?
