Spirit MOVIN‘:

Whether we need motivation for Monday to get movin’ or Wednesday to get over the hump how we are feeling on the inside cannot dictate IF or WHEN we do it. Defeating procrastination or even self-defeating thoughts starts with ignoring what your circumstances look like, paying less attention to the sacrifices you’re making today and more attention to the rewards you’ll receive tomorrow. (Galations 6:9)
