Musings A to Z Challenge: M

Challenge:  Write a short paragraph (100 words or less) daily on a topic beginning with the sequential letter of the alphabet.


As the quote implies, motion is movement, but it’s not necessarily productive or progressive; a hamster in a wheel may be moving, but it takes action to get out of the rut and do something new or different.  We speak of going through the motions, which has the feeling of a hamster wheel sometimes, doesn’t it?  While motion is value-neutral, it’s required for progress, success, advancement, and reaching goals; it must be accompanied by action toward our goals, or they will remain nothing more than castles in the air.  So go for it:  Move, act and reach your goal!
