Are you striving or surviving?

Dec 2 - Are you striving or surviving? Are you so caught up in what you cannot do, where you cannot go, or who you cannot see that you are missing the many opportunities and ways you can do more? Have you convinced yourself you might as well wait because of so much uncertainty you are feeling? Are you going through each day unmotivated and unenthusiastic? There is a world of connectivity that is always available to us. And it starts with reconnecting to ourselves, our dreams, and our possibilities. While you may not be able to physically be with someone, you can virtually connect. While you may not be able to physically go to certain places, you can still explore ways to make your current circumstances more engaging, gratifying and fulfilling. Instead of focusing on what limits you, focus on what stimulates, inspires, and empowers you.  

Take an MM&I Moment to reawaken your possibilities by focusing on what you can do versus what you can’t do. What are you striving to accomplish? What actions can you still take towards moving these desires forward? Who are you missing connecting with? How can you leverage what is available to you to reconnect and stay connected? What intrigues you about what you are striving to do? What resources are available to you to help you learn more? How is your home nurturing and encouraging you? What small things could you do to create a space that inspires you, enriches your spirit and gets you excited again about your possibilities. It doesn’t take much to shift from surviving to thriving. It just takes you believing that you can.


Wide Awake Quote of the Week

“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.” – Thich Nhat Hanh


Yours in dreaming WIDE awake,




P.S. Yesterday was #GivingTuesday. Like Thanksgiving, it is a wonderful reminder of the difference we can all make and all that we have to appreciate with the ability, no matter our circumstances, to pay it forward ... in gestures, in acknowledgements, in donations of time, talent, and treasure, and most of all ... in kindness.
