I bought a pair of sand shoes the other day. I haven’t had sand shoes for ages and decided that I needed a pair to get walking in and they were cheap from ALDI.
I normally wear a pair of Birkenstock scuffs around the house during the summer and nearly everywhere I go so my feet are not used to be confined, unless I am outside in the garden wearing my boots.
You know I talked about wearing my apron in the morning when I first get up and how motivated this makes me feel. If you didn’t read about “When I Wear My Apron” click here.
Well I think I have just found another reasonably cheap motivational product. It’s my sand shoes.
I got up this morning at 5.20 am because we were travelling to view a turkey operation. I don’t normally get up that early, but up I got and got dressed and put on my sand shoes. They felt great. My feet felt cushioned and comfortable and ready to go.
I was amazed at how motivated they made me feel, I felt like going for a walk and getting into my work. If it’s that easy to get going in the morning I am going to wear my sand shoes every day, I’ll put them on before I put on my apron.
I am not a walk around the house in my pj’s type of person. I get up and get dressed, this is the first step in motivating myself to get going.
I am definitely not a morning person but I am trying to turn my days around, early to bed and then early to rise.
These scriptures encourage me also.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Proverbs 31:15 She also rises while it is yet night, and provides food for her household, and a portion for her maidservants.
I’m all about getting motivated this year, that would be one of my No 1 goals for the year. I am not putting my motivation over my relationship with God, I feel they both work together. If I am motivated to get up and get going in the morning then I have more time for my quiet time, prayer and Bible reading.
I really hope to achieve this goal this year.
What gets you motivated in the morning??? What tools do you use???
