Monday Morning Motivation:
Want To Thrive In The Wilderness?
Do These 3 Things!

Hey now.. it’s another Monday.. welcome to it!

Let’s jump right in with today’s Monday Morning Motivation. The other day, my husband and I were talking about the precarious nature of life. Like so many of you, the plans we made years and years ago either didn’t come to fruition or were drastically altered, many times through no fault of our own.

Then Buff said something about thriving in the wilderness; sounds like a great book right? But it got me thinking about that.. how do we continue to be our best when things are really tough?

Here are the 3 things I think you MUST do if you want to continue to learn, grow and ultimately THRIVE during those times.


1. Let Go Of The Past. No. Really.

I had a friend once say to me, "It's impossible to write the next chapter of your life if you're busy re-reading the last." Simple. Profound. True. Moving forward requires both feet be pointed in the same direction. But, because we are creatures of habit, we gravitate toward what we know, especially if it was good. Like a lot of folks, I remember days of fat paychecks, expense accounts and expensive shoes. But looking back is detrimental and inhibits my forward movement. So I remember, I smile, but I keep it moving.
