Topic #4 (just 361 to go). Share something that makes you smile. (Can be a photo, an idea, a memory – anything that comes to mind).
What makes me smile, so many things. Here are three.
- I am smiling because I am keeping my New Year’s Resolution, but thought I would add some words from my WOW (Wise Old Woman) self–The beginning is often the easiest. Why? The excitement of meeting the challenge adds to motivation. When we have proved to ourselves we can meet it, that excitement wans and boredom sets it. It happens repeatedly. Think of the exercise classes suffering from dwindling participation. Think of those exercise videos, or fancy gadgets that end up gathering rust and dust. This Wiki How has some ideas to keep moving ahead. One that Word Press might help us with is to offer small incentives along the way and a bigger incentive at the end of the year for all who are still posting weekly or daily come next December 31st.
- I am smiling now because I love writing. The act of writing is enough to make me smile, but it does help if I am read and possibly given a bit of attention and praise. Doesn’t happen enough for all writers, but if you love the writing, you are still rewarded.
- I am smiling now also because sharing is caring and caring is always rewarded in the act itself. If others let you know are grateful you cared that is always a bonus, and cause for smiling. Keep caring and stay strong.
