Finding Joy Everyday / Monday Motivators / Quotes

Monday Motivators –Rest is Not Idleness…

Monday Motivators is a new blogging event at Rainy Day Reflections. Every Monday, I will share something that motivates me to get through the day, week or even through just an hour. It may be a quote, a photo or even a recipe. I hope that you will share what motivates you, also. **See below for instructions on how to join this new event.

Monday Motivator – June 13

I love this quote because it reminds us to not only to stop and smell the flowers; but to take time to enjoy them.  We get so wrapped up in chores and paying bills and working and living life that we forget to take time to enjoy the little things.  Everyone needs to rest and to just be thankful for being alive.  It’s ok to let things slow down and to enjoy your time on earth.


This week I’m also sharing a photo.  I took this photo right after a storm came through and these are the clouds that were left behind.  The sun and clouds left such beautiful colors in the sky and on the lake that it almost took my breath away.  Those few minutes looking at the clouds and listening to the waves on the beach will help me get through the next few days of this business called life.


Why Monday Motivators?

This is part of my Project Joy and Finding Joy Everyday quest. For just over 160 days, I’ve been posting a photo on Instagram everyday of something that brings me joy. (You can join me on Instagram at ldjames1.) You can read my post Finding Joy Everyday to find out how I started on this Finding Joy Everyday journey. Monday Motivators is the 2nd part of Project Joy — starting a motivating joy event.
