Whether you are a parent or not, there will be times in your life when your mojo is off. One of the best ways to get back in touch with what really gets you excited is to have a list of the things that you have loved experiencing throughout your life.
In this episode of Mommy to Mommy TV, Kimberley Clayton Blaine shares what she does to get her mojo back while I talk about how I believe that women (especially women entrepreneurs) need to connect with other women in order to truly feel on top of the world. Of course it is important to network with men as well, but there is a different connection that women have with one another that I believe empowers us.
Every day, we have the chance to start fresh with new ideas, new inspirations and new experiences. Every week, we have the potential to do something important with our time, to do something that moves us forward toward our ultimate goals in life. When our mojo is feeling off, our dreams can seem out of touch, so it is essential to know at least a few things that get us back in touch with our passions.
Where do you get your magic power?
I get in touch with my mojo from things like: the ocean, painting, writing, being with my family and friends, fashion (especially shoes), exploring uncharted territory and from being with people who are following their dreams and passions. I also find that as hard as it is to get myself to the gym, I feel incredibly inspired after a hard work out.
To make sure that my mojo is never too far from reach, I have hired a trainer twice a week to ensure that I get at least two good work outs in. I get to look at the ocean every day because our home overlooks the Pacific. I write this blog and engage in social media (and I have a book in the works) that allow me to write regularly. My family and friends are always at the top of my priority list. I have partnered with inspiring women in Social Media Girlfriends and in other networking groups to make sure I am surrounded by people who are taking action and living the life they dream of.
And despite all of this, still there are days when my mojo is off.
So, having a list of things that inspire me and committing to grow this list every day is how I keep my mojo in check. How about you? Do you find inspiration in moving your body? In creating art? In being with children? While being in nature?
Where is your mojo?
What is it that gives you such a charge that you feel like you could finally… write that book, run those laps, speak to that audience, pick up the phone and make that call, or do whatever it is that you know you need to do to live the life you want to live?
Have you made your list yet? Please leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments and have an inspired day, FULL of mojo!
