Because Mondays are hard and sometimes we need a little inspiration…Create-A-Life-That-Feels-Good-On-The-Inside

With the popularity of social media, it is easy to get caught up in how you present yourself on the outside. It’s easy to make life look perfect when you slap a filter on it. And it is easy to compare yourself with others and forget that everything projected on social media is only a projection of what people want you to see. So rather than worrying about how you’re life looks on the outside, spend that time productively focusing on what truly makes you happy.

Monday Motivation 8.3.15

Big life goals can be overwhelming. There is no question about it. But rather than trying to tackle everything in one day, avoid getting discouraged by breaking your goals into manageable tasks. Some days may be more productive than others, but if you do something,big or small, for yourself, then the day is a success.

change

Change is hard. And change can be scary. But change is also necessary. Change can be good. Change can be exciting. So rather than fight it, try to accept the ever changing adventure ahead of you.

Monday Motivation 6.1.15

I’ve got something a little different for you this week. I recently came across this website, which is chuck full of quotes. I found myself writing a bunch down and rather than just choosing one to share, I decided to share the whole site with you. The content is updated regularly and there is a wide variety of topics. Some are motivational, some are funny, and some just make you think. Share your favorite in the comments below!

Adventure

I heard this quote a few weeks ago while I was on a bus to Boston. The documentary 180˚ South was playing and I was quickly enthralled in the story. A lot of things resonated when I heard this quote.  All too often when something goes wrong we see it as an annoying setback instead of a chance to grow and explore. So next time you find yourself adrift think of it as an exciting chance to discover something new about yourself and/or the world.

(180˚ South is available on Netflix if you are interested in watching it. I definitely recommend it.)

mosquitoI believe a lot of the time we think taking action and making a difference comes from some grand gesture. I  don’t think that should be the case. Make it your goal to make a difference today. No matter how small. Smile at a stranger. Pick up a piece of litter. Donate a few dollars. Discuss ideas and current events. Reflect on your place in the world. If everyone did one small thing each day, it would be like a room full of mosquitoes! This post is starting to making me itchy… Happy Monday!
