I bought these magnets back before Christmas. I’m not entirely sure why. Looking at magnets doesn’t motivate me to “make my dreams happen,” nor am I expecting them to do the same for anyone who spots them on my fridge. Something made me buy them, though, and so on my fridge they sit.
What do motivate me are the feelings that come along with doing the things that I love. The contentment, the satisfaction, the pride, and the multitude of others feelings I can’t possibly list here. Those, and the idea that maybe, someday, someone will connect with my books the way I’ve connected with so many others.
What motivates you?
