I watched the Oscars last night. Did you? I love the Oscars. I’m a movie buff and I love the escape from our own realities that movies offer us. I can also truly appreciate when an actor makes me believe their character and then can perform a completely different character in another movie, that’s talent. So to watch the award show and the culmination of the year’s movies and all that talent, it’s inspiring. Add the fashion and style that walks the red carpet before the show, and I’m all in!

Last night one speech struck a nerve and truly inspired me within because I keep hearing it over and over in my head, still this morning. It was Hildur Guðnadóttir’s speech after winning best original score for Joker and she said, “To the girls, to the women, to the mothers, to the daughters who hear the music bubbling within, please speak up, we need to hear your voices.” I’m not sure what I’m going to do with that, but I know it struck me and I’d like to think it will inspire some action.

So here’s a post for today’s motivation and I’m hoping it helps with my direction. If not, maybe it will help with yours.

Either way we all need a little Monday Motivation don’t we?
