M.A.I. Monday Motivation: Always Be Brave & Strong New Beginnings Can Happen Anytime

Updated: Aug 16


Greetings and Good Monday Evening ,


I hope all is well and that you’ve had a wonderful weekend. We’re back at the top of yet another week. It’s quite amazing how fast time is flying. The summer is almost over might I add. So, today, I want to capture this moment with a brief message to M.OTIVATE | A.SPIRE | I.NSPIRE us all to have a great week! So, let’s get right into it!


“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

~ Deuteronomy 31:6

I wanted to start today’s message off with a scripture from Deuteronomy because, it’s befitting. This week, my family (as many families around America) is gearing up for “Back to School” activities. Our oldest son, is headed to a new school and the excitement of going to a new school has taken over our home. As we prepare, I felt a bit nostalgic, and I thought about my youth and growing up with those “first day of school jitters.” It’s funny, I've always had them —those nervous butterflies in the stomach, type feelings — every single year. Also, even now, I find myself a little bit nervous about open house at my son’s school, and it’s been a long time since I’ve remotely felt anything like this. I think that I’m a little nervous for him. The interesting thing is when I ask my son how he feels about going to a new school, and the first day of school; he says, he’s super excited! There’s no fear, anxiety, or anything like that in his voice. He told me, “Mom, I’m just so excited! I can’t wait to meet new people.” That warmed my heart because, everyone deserves to have that kind of fearless, carefree mentality and excitement when faced with a new endeavor, or going into a new environment. It’s important to me to not project my feelings onto him. I don’t want him to know that I feel this way because, kids will take on their parents emotions. Especially, when you’re close to them, they want to “fix it”. Kids want to help, and if they can’t, they will blame themselves. I don’t want my son to feel that negativity, or feel like he has to help me fix my feelings. He shouldn’t have to worry about anything other than being a kid, and living his best kid life right now! We can learn so much from this scripture and my son. The message for today is to let go of any fear, anxiety, or any stronghold that is keeping you from moving forward. New beginnings are super duper exciting and can come at anytime in life! So, embrace it and enjoy it! Sometimes, I think that it’s ok, to be carefree and not take a given situation so seriously. Be in willing to see only the good and positive in a situation that may scare you, look for the positive so that you may find your courage and strength. Remember you’ve got this and above all have fun! I’ll be taking my own advice on this one, as well!


I hope that you’ve enjoyed this message this week, and that you have an awesome day! Every now and then, we all need a little encouragement and a reminder that everything’s ok. I hope that this blog post was that for you.


Have a blessed day and week! Peace.
