What motivates you?  Today, I had the most amazing experience; I was able to be with my step-daughter during the birth of her first child.  Having given birth to two children and having four grandchildren, this was my first experience seeing and participating in a baby’s birth.

After the event, when I had time to reflect I realize not only did this day bring our fifth grandchild into the world but gave me renewed hope for the world, my family and myself.  What a tremendous motivator!  As you progress through your life, you have highs and lows and periods of time when you question “What am I doing?”  Today, I know, I am doing what needs to be done, working and providing support to my family.

Having my own business gives me the flexibility I need at this time in my life.  Time to run and pick up our grandsons because Mom needs to work late.  Running to a school event because Mom and Dad have to work.  Taking our grandkids to the movies and sitting through yet another animated movie – watching the awe and laughter as they enjoy the movie.
This is what motivates me.  What motivates you?  What is it you want to do?  Get out there and do it and reflect on what’s important in your life.

I hope you have the enjoyment I do and that everything is as wonderful for you.
