Motivation Mondays: Dream

27/10/2014

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney

Motivation Mondays

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.

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” C. S. Lewis

    Hi, Eliz!
    I’m coming out of hiatus (or hibernation, depression, coma – whatever that was…) and am energised and motivated to make a new dream come true: “Quilting Oneness” – I’ll comment again when it’s live 🙂

    The Blogging 201 came exactly at the right moment, in fact it started the same day that I set up my new blog. “Enermazing” will be continued, too, but only with occasional posts.

    Love,
    Maria xxx

      So delighted to hear from you Maria. I’m so happy you are getting back on track. We have both been on hiatus… I took about one year off and the return has been choppy. Recently signed up with a VA and its turning around. Please let me know once your site is live as I’d love to continue where we left off. Hugs.
