I like sailing so I would say the wind. As I think about it, even the lightest ripple on the water is an invitation to go sailing. Often the wind is a precursor to change. A Change in wind direction or temperature is an invitation if not a warning, that something is about to happen. I’d say the wind.
Even when there is wind but there is no water?
Yes, I love and dream of sailing. I crossed the Atlantic on a sailboat and had a wonderful time. When the wind blows and I am on land, I remember the fun I had at sea.
Trees, clouds, moon, stars, insects,
So nature, right?
Right….people inspire me as well
The view from the window – any season, any weather, day or night
That’s awesome! So you can get easily motivated each day 🙂
Well, as an academic, classroom/office environment. Gets me into the mood.
And that is true even for my non-academic writing
Awesome! I don’t remember if I asked you before, but if I did, I apologize. What do you teach?
I dont think you did. I am in Linguistics. So I do research in and teach that.
Wow, that’s awesome! Maybe you can do a guest post here, on Pointless Overthinking, about the importance of it and maybe a few “tips and tricks”?
I would love to do that! Thanks for the opportunity! I will email you!
Great! I’m looking forward for the post! 😀
The simple sight of nature makes me feel so alive and motivated
Very nice! I hope you live next to it so you can be motivated most of the time 🙂
I sure do, I am grateful for that 🙂 Have a great Monday 😊
The photos on my office walls and the sunlight through the door coming over my shoulder.
What a nice view! What photos do you have on your office walls?
Family, friends mainly, but also fishing trips, work shots with friends and a some of the buildings I’ve worked (lived at), a few of my favorite cars and my motorcycle,
Smiles and attentive eyes of my students in the class as I teach.
It seems that you really love teaching. I wish more people would be like you 🙂
I really do love teaching and thank you.
Mountains and their gigantic presence
Yeah, they dictate our environment 🙂
When people think me that I am just nothing…This thing more motivated me…😊😊😊🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶😶
So when this happens, you want to prove them wrong, right?
My husband, my pets, my dream board, and my salt lamp. The way my husband looks at me reminds me that I’m not the total disaster that I’ve been told I am. My pets make me smile with their antics, and love. My dream board reminds me that I’m strong, and blessed. My salt lamp sheds a lovely pink glow, that eases my anxieties, and makes it possible to push myself a bit.
I’m glad you have so many things around that motivate you! That’s what allows you to evolve.
I have a salt lamp too in my room.
Literally nothing at the moment, due to the cold and long Northern Europe winter. Waiting for spring, in the meantime I look into my cup of coffee 🙂
I hope that cup of coffee is enough until the spring comes 🙂
A clean kitchen/desk
I hope you have that every day.
The moon, the stars, the quiet of the night. And snow, snowing,raining, watching the sea… i’m obviously a water sign
I like surrounding myself with art, my photography, others as well, drawings and paintings from friends and family and that I’ve done…also things that make me happy life penguins, cherry blossoms, Asian decor, fairies and various oddities.
Awesome! So you have set a very nice motivating environment for you 🙂
I do if I allow it to. What I need to do more of us trying to focus on them to help me snap out of my anxiety attacks and moodiness.
