Motivation is “the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.” Welcome to my reasons. 🙂 This is a new weekly series that I thought would be perfect to start off the new year. Who doesn’t love a little motivation? Each Monday, I will share with you what is high on my motivational list for the week. Quotes, books, songs, stories, movies, etc…anything that I currently find motivating.
I also want to extend an invite, if you would like to write a #motivationalmonday post I would love to feature you as my guest! <3 Contact me through my contact page here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t wait to hear from you!

What Is On My Radio?
Before my heart, heart turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
Let it move you, let it move you, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
When he told you-you’re not right
When he told you-you’re not strong enough
To put up a good fight
When he told you-you’re not worthy
When he told you-you’re not loved
When he told you-you’re not beautiful
That you’ll never be enough
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
‘Cause fear he is a liar
What Is On My TV?
Miracle from 2004 is such an inspiring true story about the 1980 US Hockey team. It is a great movie and always warms my heart.
A Beautiful Mind, starring Russell Crowe, is based on a true story about a brilliant mathematician named John Nash. Russell Crowe does an amazing job in this role, even nabbing an Oscar.
That is my #motivationmonday for this week. Hope you find something that can help motivate you. See you next Monday!!
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
