What drives me to get up in the morning? What gets me going? Why do I run? Why do I read? Why do I blog?
One major inspiration in my life (and the answer I gave) is my family. I do a lot because of my family. I love and because of that I serve them.
I love my Heavenly Father. I love my Savior. Because of that I want to be the best person that I can be. I want to be the best woman, wife, mother, friend. I want to read and blog and develop my talents and gifts. I want to run and keep my body healthy. I want to run and show my family that we can do hard things. When I ran my last half marathon and I wanted to sit down and quit, I knew my family would be right around the corner. And I knew my kids needed to see that we could do hard things. We can finish hard things. So I ran. Slow as a turtle, but I ran that last half mile for them.
I think if you know me, you know by now that good books inspire me. I love books.
So….I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I got sucked into some online quizzes – answer these twenty questions and find out what inspires you. (please tell me you’ve done them too!) HA! I took a couple different ones and a couple different times and always came up with different answers. There went 5 minutes of my life I’ll never get back.
I think goals and accomplishments drive and inspire me. It that a thing? Is that possible? I love to make a list - and cross things off the list as I finish them. I know that if I make a goal, and I write it down, then I feel a huge desire to finish it.
So now what?
Should I join a challenge? Make up a mileage goal to hit by the end of the year Please don’t say I should do the whole 30 – I’ll tell you right now, I would fail miserably! Any ideas?
What inspires you? What drives you? If you were asked that question – what would you say?
