My daughters and I were watching a college lecture on the Islam religion, and I thought about how they kneel several times a day to pray. Somehow I can't see us doing that here in our culture, but I want to be better at offering up a prayer when I feel grateful. It is something I really should feel all the time and give credit where credit is due. If you see me at Nordstroms with a pair of new shoes that I have just purchased kneeling at the counter, you'll know. Seriously though, it isn't the material stuff that I am the most grateful for.

My plates are goals and resolutions and invariably I get a few spinning nicely but I start focusing on spinning a new one only to have the previous ones topple and fall. I think I have gotten drinking lots of water spinning quite nicely; only to start to focus on reading more, and whoops, my water drinking plate fell and broke. Story of my life. I'm just grateful I have an eternity to get this all down. In the meantime, I put on a nice performance.

I am working on my master's project about how we can educate to create intrinsic passion and love of learning. I am interested in everyone's personal experience in what helps create your unique mojo. What helps you be motivated and passionate about something? Please share what kind of experience in education tapped into your mojo. What inhibited it for you? What do you do that reignites your mojo when you get in a rut?
Since I want a lot of feedback, I will have a drawing for a gift certificate at Sego Lily Day Spa in Layton and Midvale for all those who post a comment. Thank you.
