I have not written in a few days, you could say I have not felt motivated.  And then yesterday I reminded myself, while mentoring someone else, to just start writing and it will happen. My mentee was unsure of what to say when sharing, I told her, just start talking and it will come out. We are responsible for creating what we want and I do not feel _______(fill in the blank) is just an excuse. We can either talk about doing or not doing something, complain about the conditions not being right or we can get into action and see what happens.  Action generates our motivation and only we can create that action.  So what are you waiting for right now? What do you want to do and you keep waiting to get motivated? Take responsibility for your motivation and start now!
