Day fourteen

We had some technical difficulties with the internet last night, so I could not make this post until this morning.

 "In my experience, there is only one motivation, and that is desire. No reasons or principle contain it or stand against it."
-Jane Smiley

We will do whatever it is we truly desire to do. We may try to make excuses, or give reasons, or validations, or justifications, but in the end we do things because we want to do them. We may not even understand why we want a certain thing. But the heart will have what it wants. It is like a spoiled child, pestering and nagging and making you generally unhappy until it gets it's way. What is your heart's desire today? What is motivating you? What is moving you? Do you like the outcome, or do you need to change your thoughts and attitudes so that you can change your actions?
