|Doing My Soul Work Rocks!|
When we evolve our state of being to one of contentment and ease we become a survivor, no longer the victim. Things happen to us, things happened to me and speaking from my own experience I can say that those things shaped a foundation that told me to survive by any means necessary. The normal rules did not apply to me most of the time. I was always a right is right and wrong is wrong type of person but often decided what was right and what was wrong depending on the situation and the necessity to survive.

Learning our motivating factors is a powerful tool in moving forward in life. Through work with my success coach I have learned much about my own motivators and just the realization of what motivates me has opened up doors to change what motivates me. I am at a place in my life today where I have never been, in the past I would have tore it all down before reaching this level in my life. I find myself in unfamiliar territory often and through sheer determination to change and grow, to do it the right way this time I familiarize myself with this new way of accomplishing my goals, creating a new me.
Whatever motivates you, if you discover what it is and begin there you can use that to achieve more, you can learn to adapt new motivators. Someone who is on the far end of the scale and motivated toward pleasure can be just as self destructive as someone like myself who was only motivated away from pain. In that state of being you may find yourself only seeking out pleasure in life and avoiding the parts that are painful, a balance is key. We need to face the parts that hurt so we can overcome them, overcome ourselves. A lack of commitment can result from someone who is only motivated by pleasure and this can surface in avoiding the parts of life that do not feel pleasurable all the time.

for the summer with us, he will be visiting soon.
Last night I lay in bed with my sister looking across the bed at her closet doors of mirrors I saw myself, laying on my side, a position that would not have been my favorite or thought the most flattering in the past. I smiled and said out loud... I look beautiful just the way I am, I don't look bad like I used to think I did. My sister looked at me and said with her eyes sparkling letting me know here words were coming from her heart... You are so beautiful Jo, you always have been and I want you to know I have never pushed you to lose weight because I thought anything else, I just want you to be healthy, mobile and to live a long time with me because I can't bear the thought of losing you. We hugged.

These are just some examples of how our motivating factors effect our lives. When we decide to, we can choose what to be motivated by. Today I choose to be motivated by self love and love for all, being of service to the greater good and overcoming the parts of myself that no longer serve me.
I love you all from a place of such excitement for where I am today, and such gratitude for being able to share this journey with you. You too deserve to feel all the joy life has to offer, we are here to live, not simply survive.
