This Week is Brought to You By ...

Up at the top of my to-do list for this week, I have written: Power. Persistence. Prayer. It's the theme I've chosen for this week, a rallying cry or a mantra to get me through everything I have on my plate. The plate is pretty full, and pretty overwhelming, but when I look at these words, I feel strengthened to push forward and keep at it.

Life itself is overwhelming, when we think about all the stuff we need to get done. Add something time-consuming like writing on top of it, and it can seem impossible. But that's just it - it's completely possible. We just have to power through the things that are holding us back.

As I choose the theme for each week, I think about the attributes I will most need to be successful at those specific tasks. I keep them in front of me all the time. And they push me forward.

What are your tips and tricks for keeping yourself motivated? Do you find certain days of the week harder than others, and how do you power through them?

LTUE certainly rejuvenated me. Being immersed like that was wonderful.

I really like your theme for the week. Persistence is my motto that gets me through the day and keeps me going.

I have to make a list, otherwise I wander around aimlessly trying to match missing socks.

You know that whole sock thing will just drag you down ... :)
