Monday can be hard. It’s usually the first day back to reality from a restful or fun-filled weekend. My Monday this week looks like the first day back to the reality of keeping up with a toddler alone while I’m laden down with tissues. Have I mentioned I hate spring allergies?? Regardless, I needed some reminders today to keep me motivated and I thought I would bring you along for the journey.
“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”
Whether you woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning or things aren’t going your way this afternoon, there is still something good in this day. When we are purposeful about finding the good things in each day, the bad things won’t seem as bad.
“It doesn’t matter how slowly you are going as long as you don’t stop” ~ Confucius
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy”
Some food for thought – whenever we do things that make us happy, it’s a lot easier to be happy! So if you’re finding yourself constantly run down or unhappy, then maybe it’s time to make a change. Even finding something small that you can do every day, like going for a run, can change your mood drastically. For me, I’ve been finding happiness in blogging!
“Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to enjoy your life.”
“Some days you just have to create your own sunshine”
Sometimes we all just have to determine to be happy and kind, regardless of our circumstance. I think sometimes it isn’t so much about being able to change your circumstance, but changing your perspective about it or deciding to be joyful in spite of it.
“Never do tomorrow what you can do today, procrastination is the thief of time.”
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” ~ Walt Disney
It may be hard work to make your dreams come true, but they will definitely never have a chance if you don’t have the courage to pursue them, I was so nervous to begin this journey of blogging, but I finally took a small leap of faith and went for it! I hope you all have the same courage this Monday.
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
“Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like & celebrating it for everything that it is.”
In the end, life may not turn out exactly as you had imagined. But you can still celebrate the small things. Things that make you happy – family, friends, nice weather, a roof over your head… There is always something to celebrate.
May the rest of your week be happy and motivated, starting with your Monday. If not, there is always coffee and chocolate and a chance to try again next Monday.
