Motivation Monday And The Reasons Behind It

Today is Monday. It is Motivation Monday.

I have been a co-host of this link-up for quite a while now. Barb from A Life in Balance asked me to join and I jumped on it immediately. I had been following the link up for quite sometime before that, and was more than excited to be a part of it. You see, this link up is a pretty special one. Barb created it to bring inspiration, posts that would motivate others, to the front. It was meant to highlight work that created a spark in someone by reading stories others. Whether that inspiration or motivation came in the form of a thoughtful post, a healthy recipe, or even a craft or accomplishment, the end result would be the same. The reader would feel a twinge of something, a reason or an inspiration to do better, create better, or be a better person.

^This is why I love this link up. Every single week, I read stories that I may not have otherwise come across that make me feel this. Thank you for allowing me to be a learner by linking up your posts that inspire! I can’t wait to read this week’s!
