Birthday week + keep the gratitude…


Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ― Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: I am the kind of guy who likes celebrations.  I am the kind of guy who likes to celebrate my birthday.  So in case you didn’t know this Wednesday, November 11th, Veteran’s Day is my birthday.  I plan to go to Camp Gladiator from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. and then I have a birthday run scheduled at 7:00 a.m. for 5 miles.  I anticipate that it will be a good day. What kind of things do you like to do to celebrate your birthday?

(If you want to get me a gift please consider pledging on Patreon $1, $3, or $5 a month to Matt’s Motivational Monday.  See details at the bottom of the page.) And since it’s still November let’s continue with the gratitude.  What are three things you are thankful for today? Some of mine are listed below: Playing ping pong with my sister Jenny, Eric, and Ashley. Laughter with my family. Watching Emily and Anna do gymnastics. I am thankful for walks in nature. I am thankful for a good night of sleep. I am thankful and full of gratitude for running water at my house. I am thankful and full of gratitude for Bethany United Methodist Church. I am thankful and full of gratitude for our calm and quiet neighborhood.

Let’s have a great Monday.  TGIM!  AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY:  1) I accept my wonderful and beautiful self.  2) I love myself unconditionally.  3) The love I have for myself exudes out to others.  If you would like to get me a gift for my birthday please consider pledging $1, $3, or $5 to support Matt’s Motivational Monday.  The money helps me send this message as far as it can go.
