Ten Things to Keep You Going

Ten Things to Keep You Going
It’s a tough world out there and everyone needs to find sources of inspiration to fight off the demons.  Before you get started with your day, get out your journal and make a list of ten things that you can use as sources of joy and motivation. Whether it’s a favorite saying, a photo, a person, or a place that you love, your list should include things that nourish and inspire you both mentally and spiritually.  When you’re having a tough day and you need that extra spark to get yourself ignited, you’ll want to come back to this list — so make it a good list! (You might also want to hang this list on your refrigerator or bulletin board as a daily reminder.)
Jeanette’s Top Ten List for Motivation and Inspiration
1. Going to church on Sunday or Bible Study during the week
2. Music: A great playlist with my favorite songs
3. Time with family and friends — having fun, talking on the phone, or emailing.
4. Reading self-help books: The most memorable for me include Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav; Creating Affluence and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra; The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz; and Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Myers
5. Walking, hiking, and playing with my dogs
6. Being close to nature: the ocean, trees, birds, flowers, and animals
7. Taking a yoga or dance class
8. Reading quotes or prayers such as the Serenity Prayer: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
9.  Contemplating passages from the Bible. Among my favorites: “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2: 3, 4
10. Reading to discover new ideas and get information I can use in my own life and teaching.
