“In my experience, there is only one motivation and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it.”-Jane Smiley
Good morning! I have long been a believer in the type of “desire” Jane refers to in this quote. Desire can move mountains, help us stand after falling for the hundredth time, and it can perform miracles and get us through our darkest times. When we truly desire something with our body, mind and soul, there is no indecision or moments of inaction-every step becomes a part of the journey toward our goal.
Life doesn’t offer us a smooth path. Instead, it offers us mountains and valleys, cold and warm phases: life “seasons” us. Yet, heart-born desire propels us forward through all of life’s seasons and allows us to move with purpose.
Your Turn: What fills you with the type of desire that can move mountains? Devote more of your time to this desire and passion, and nurture it.
Today’s Affirmation: I nurture my passions.
