This morning I realized what motivates me. - the birds!
When I go outside for my daily SLLS halt (stop, look, listen, smell), drinking my coffee, standing in the sun, hearing the cheerful songs of the birds, it is a therapeutic and motivational experience.
It is more powerful and valuable than any drug or treatment.
It's nature, it's free and it is the gift we were given by God.
The birds sing such uplifting and motivational songs that you can't help but to feel energized and ready to take on the day.
It may sound silly. The old crackhead is out there huggin trees. Not so!
Try it sometime. Take your coffee or favorite beverage and go sit in a scenic and serene spot.
Let the sun shine on your face and just listen for awhile. Allow yourself to hear the song.
Be inspired, empowered, motivated and energized.
Then go crush your day in beast mode!
