All about Mia’s Motivations

Have you noticed a change around here? We are such creatures of habit, that change is often hard to deal with. I’m excited and pleased with the new changes to my site and social outlets. I’ve been working on branding myself and my page, as well as honing in the direction it’s heading. More than one of my friends took notice.

Over the past few months, I’ve received a few messages and phone calls both complimenting me and also inspiring, or nudging me, in the direction of my outreach. My friend, Robert, told me how much he liked the hunting, shooting and other pieces I share but even more, he liked the encouragement I subtly add to everything I do. Then my friend Julie began picking my brain about topics for my website. We sent messages back and forth about what I love, what my mission is, what I do and so on. I was left with a million thoughts swirling through my head.

Then I was chatting with another friend and she said, “I love your morning motivations.” WHAHLAH! There it was. The new title for my site. ‘Mia’s Motivations – Exploring survival in the mountains of the modern Wild West.’I aspire to motivate others into the outdoors, shooting sports, hunting, and other avenues of life.  cropped-mias-motivations-exploring-survival-in-the-modern-wild-west-mac-outdoors2.jpg

Motivations – For a long time, I’ve had a favorite quote.”One thing I am sure of. I was put on this earth to shed light onto others. Even if it is only with a smile.” It’s my quote, and created it to remind myself that even when I’m going through trying times, there are others who have it as bad or worse. We’re not in this world alone and a positive attitude is contagious.

Exploring – Since I was a young girl, growing up near the river in southern Colorado, I’ve LOVED exploring. No matter where we live, there are always places to go, see, learn, explore and be outdoors. What we do out there is limitless, but we should always have an attitude of care and conservation in our thoughts. As always, I’ll be exploring the outdoors as well as tools to use and things to do, primarily in the hunting, fishing and shooting categories.

Survival – Of course it’s important to know how to survive, and I’ve already shared some products to help in this area, I’ll also share, techniques, recipes, and stories about how to make it in this big world, God created.

Mountains – I aspire to motivate others into the outdoors, shooting sports, hunting, and other avenues of life. Although I live in the mountains, sometimes the mountains we encounter are obstacles or challenges. I will do my best to encourage you to look to the goal and what is on the other side of the “mountain.”

Modern – In case you didn’t know, I live out West. I live on the west side of the Rocky Mountains, in Colorado, to be exact. So why modern? Because I’ve lived in and out of this area long enough to know how it was “back then.” I know what it’s like to live without running water or electricity. NO. I’m not THAT old. My parents simply chose to live is such a manner when I was a small child. I have great memories of those times and I have an appreciation for the luxuries we have today, because of it. Even though I live with modern day conveniences, I know what it was like way back when the pioneers were discovering this beautiful country, call the Wild West.

Wild West – My, oh my! I used to end all my stories with, “It’s always and adventure” because IT IS! There are some wild times on horses in the mountains, during hunts,on the boat, at the lake and virtually any place. I’ll share it with you in as safe a manner as possible. Let’s check it out!
