Motivation Monday: Blue Sky Day

There is something I find so inspiring about looking up at a cloudless blue sky! When was the last time you stopped and really looked?

Living in Upstate New York near Lake Ontario, we don’t see as many true blue sky days as I would like, but when we get them, oh my gosh! I suppose it is their rarity that makes them so special.

When my 2 year old son and I were sitting at the kitchen table one morning, I asked him what he wanted to do that day.  He looked out the window and declared (with all the spunk and innocence of a child) “It’s a blue sky day, we can do anything we want”.

I want you to think about this.  When was the last time you said that or anything like that? We get so caught up in living our lives, we sometimes forget to enjoy the emotions associated with basic pleasures in life, like a blue sky day.

The truth is, you can do anything you want every day! Maybe not all day long, but maybe, just maybe, if we stop worrying about stuff, we can figure out what we truly WANT to do and be!

With the encouragement from my friend and talented photographer/graphic designer, Patti Jacobs, we have completed a project to help inspire and ignite your dreams!  It is called Blue Sky Day and it is a photo journal.  52 of her photos capturing the magic of blue sky days combined with a journaling prompt and inspirational quote will keep you inspired for a year!

This is what the 2 page spread looks like!
