Monday Motivations – Martin Luther King, Jr.


I am feeling particularly unmotivated this Monday. Sometimes I choose not to fight my lack of motivation and lethargy. Feeling tired, I decided I would stretch out on my couch. Then I remembered today is Monday and I need to post a Monday Motivations quote.

Looking through my file of saved quotes, this quote from Dr. King spoke to me. I have, after all crossed off one item on the list I made for myself before bed last night. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all that I need to do and want to do. I have another hectic week in front of me and I’m pretty much running on empty. Reading Dr. King’s quote reminds me although I am moving at a snail’s pace, I am moving. One thing checked off a to-do list is one thing done. You may not find me galloping through all that I have to do but I am crawling forward.

I think I will spend some time this afternoon writing a list of everything I have to do and break it down into smaller more manageable parts. Crawl on and taking small steps forward shall be my mantra for the week.

How do you handle feeling overwhelmed and unmotivated?

    • Oh the piles, sometimes I think I spend time just moving piles. And I’m not a hoarder I am just in need of a major organizational overhaul. Honestly, I do not have stacks of New York Times and Boston Globes dating back to 1985 piled to the ceiling. And no cats, I’m allergic.
