I’m headed out the door this morning to take the kids for a drive and meet for a picnic with their grandma. I’m looking forward to it because it is the last week of summer vacation before my boy is an official second grader and our life settles into the rhythm of school days. I’m happy to have one last mini adventure with them before all that begins.

Selfishly, I just really like to drive long distances by myself with the windows down and the music up. I feel like its cleansing for my mind which has been cluttered and weary with much lately. I’m looking forward to some time outside of my daily rigmarole to dream up and create some new affirmations and goals. I want some clarity on some of the things I have been learning this summer and where I’m headed with them. My hearts desire is to head into the next season of chilled weather and crunchy leaves with confidence and an action plan.

With that being said, I wonder what YOU do to inspire yourself? What are the ways in which you keep yourself motivated and spurred onward??
