I am really thankful for friends who take time to give encouragement and advice when they don't have to. A few sweet friends shared with me things that help them to get motivated, and I tell you, it was a big help. Whether it was telling me how they prioritize, or set goals, or just get inspiration from others, it was advice I needed to hear. So, I looked at a few blogs, some photos on my flickr group, set some immediate goals and I feel a little more motivated. So thanks, ladies! Now, if I could just get out around the city on a photo trip, that will really get me motivated in the photography area...anyone want to go with me? :)

How do I get motivated? I haven't been motivated to do some of my favorite things lately, like taking photos of my kiddos, or blogging, or getting my new blog ready, it's really kind of sad. Where do any of you get your motivation from? I know I should be, considering it's Spring and there is so much inspiration around. I think I may need to take some time to think, plan, and dream. Time away is always good for the soul. I think that might help get my motivation back...or at least I hope so. What do you think?

A new treat...

I'm going to plug something new I've discovered that is yummy...AND good for you. It is Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa). It's organic, it's a grain, it's full on protein, it's loaded with vitamins and minerals...and it's really, really good for you. I cooked mine in chicken broth to give it a little flavor, but you can fix it several different ways. It has this delicious nutty flavor that is simply yummy. I thought I'd pop in and post this because, well, we're all looking for more healthy things to eat and ways to be nice to our bodies...and this is one of those ways! It's not cheap, but it's worth it. Your body will thank you!
