Love motivates me… what’s your carrot?

Cherish Yesterday… Thankful For Today… Excited About Tomorrow

I got to thinkin’ about this as it came up while talking with the HB just the other day…

What motivates me? What is “my motive?”

Have you ever thought about that question?

For me… like most of us… it’s buried in my personality… it’s a part of my fabric and the perfect way that God made me… and the same is true for you, too!

To sum it up… for me… I’m motivated by the desire to love other people… and to be loved.

It’s not a secret to those who know me… or you too… what motivates us. When I tell you that it’s LOVE that motivates me… do you see that? From what the people who know me say, it’s very easy to see for me, for sure! Just glance around here at I’m Just Thinkin’ and you’ll see it… everywhere you look!

I’m certain that the same is true with everyone else… the people who really know you will agree, when you honestly identify and are candid about your motivation, it’s readily apparent what your motives are.

Today, I’m striving to be transparent and proud of who I am and how God made me… continuing to love in the glorious light that God shines from above…

and above all else…

“Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3: 3-6

The love that God put in my heart breathes with this verse from Proverbs…

and with this spirit…

Cherish Yesterday… Thankful For Today… Excited About Tomorrow…

For me, personally,  especially today, I’m striving to…

always cherish the beautiful memory that we created yesterday…

be thankful for today…

be really excited about tomorrow 🙂

What memory do you cherish from yesterday?

What do you have to be thankful for today?

What are you excited about for tomorrow?

What a great reminder. Loving others and being loved is so important when it comes to living a fulfilled life.

I can answer all three of those questions with one word: Family.

    Love set the mood… the whole air of your presence, for sure Dan!

    Family… good one, that stays near the top of mine too!

Wow and a ticklish “ouch.” I wish I could say that love for others motivates me. Perhaps more honest is that I’m motivated to “TRY” to love others–even “those” people.

I cherish time spent yesterday with my 90-year old mother; I’m thankful for writing time today; I’m excited about spending the weekend with my husband and son.
