#MotivationalMonday: YOU are my motivation


You are my motivation.


You are what inspires me to do better.


You make me want to run faster, to train harder, to swim, to bike.


You are the reason I want to teach yoga.


My #MotivationalMonday is dedicated to the wonderful people in my life. To my friends, to family, to fellow runners, to the yoga community, to the random strangers I encounter. Watching everyone else’s strength, feeling compassion from a new acquaintance, hugging a friend, smiles.

Other people motivate me because I am always awed by how awesome everyone is.  Y’all are truly the best inspiration–because I am amazed by your spirit, your energy, your goodness, your physical abilities, your strengths, your perseverance, your generosity, your love for others.


Thank you. Everyone. For having the courage to be you. For being unique. For each and ever single one of you possessing a special gift and bringing joy into the world.

What motivates me this Monday?


Thank you.

    Such a great post and seriously rings so true! Other people inspire me so much, I honestly think that is why I enjoy blogging so much. There are just so many incredible people doing all different kids of incredible things, they inspire me each day! Having had this work injury which has kept me from running the past 5 months, I have pretty much dwelt on others for motivation to take my mind off my own problems! Thanks for sharing!
