Monday Morning Motivation – Comfort

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss "Comfort".

Hopefully, the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week. Please feel free to forward the newsletter along to others who you think would benefit from the content.


(Note: I like to say there are no such things as coincidences, but just small miracles from God. I lay out my content weeks in advance. The choice for this Monday is definitely a “God moment” as it comes on the heels of losing my mom and experiencing the comfort of many during the process)

Eating a bowl of ice cream, taking a nap, sitting with my favorite cat Sputnik on my lap, a hug from Sonya—all of these things provide me with an incredible sense of comfort.

We have the ability to offer our friends and families comfort through the time we spend with them, the things we do for them, and how we honor them through the words we speak about them. While we all know this, sometimes we are not as consciously aware of how we spend our time, the things we do, or the things we say.

Making a conscious effort to focus on the things we think, say, and do can have a huge impact on those around us. AND it can also have a huge impact on us.


That brings me to this week’s question:

  • What are you doing to provide comfort to your friends and family?


Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning.

Have a great week!
