Happy Monday! Some weeks this sounds like an oxymoron for many as we start a new week, which is usually announced by some jarring return to work. But Mondays can be powerful days.
I don’t know about all of you, but since the pandemic, remaining motivated is one of my biggest struggles. Everything I want to do seems so small in light of the many problems that 2020 has shone a light on. And these problems like lack of racial justice/equality, a global pandemic, leaders who tell people not to wear a mask and then gets a deadly virus because of his carelessness, and all the holes in our social safety net that said leader will likely to choose to ignore from his top notch medical facility.
It seems like the hits have kept coming. It’s hard to roll with the punches when they keep coming and it feels like you have a blindfold on. But I think I am finally learning.
Regardless of all the crazy the world is throwing at us now and the temptation to crawl into a prepper’s bunk, remember one thing:
We all have our own beautiful light to shine on the world, and that includes you. Together we can be a crack in the darkness where light shines through.
It may feel hard to accomplish anything moving forward blind. But when moments of being in the flow anything can happen. Including throwing a piece of pottery blindfolded like this one:
You can see more raku pottery vases here.
What is motivating you these days and what are your dreams, hopes and goals for the rest of 2020?
