Monday Motivation

Because Mondays are hard and sometimes we need a little inspiration…

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!

Monday Motivation

Because Mondays are hard and sometimes we need a little inspiration…


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.)

Friday Finds 1.30.15

1. A lot of Super Bowl ads are coming out before the Super Bowl this year… which to me defeats the purpose. But anyway, if you haven’t see it yet, check out the domestic violence PSA that will air during Sunday’s game. The call in the video actually happened. It will leave you speechless.

2. Ellen’s birthday was this week. The 26th of January to be exact. I love Ellen and her mission “be kind to one another”. I think she is a wonderful human being. So here are some classic Ellen quotes that prove she’s the best.

3. Oh just your typical man-rescues-sick-lion-cub-nurses-her-back-to-health-then-teaches-her-to-hunt story. 

4. Like beer? Drink Stella! Responsibly of course. Stella Artois has partnered with to bring awareness to the global water crisis with their ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign. Bonus points for the clever name.

5. Check out these cute rescued lab animals photographed in Alice in Wonderland scenes. How can you do your part to stop animal testing? Make sure you buy cruelty free cosmetics. Every little bit of effort helps.

Be optimistic. See the good in today.

I’ve got a serious case of the Mondays today. So I figured it would be a good day to start a new series called Motivation Mondays. Here I will post things to make you smile, think, and start your week off right. I know it’s not the most original idea I’ve ever had, but I think it will add another dimension to my blog. I want to promote being conscious in more way than one. With this I hope to promote being conscious about yourself, keeping a positive outlook, and doing whatever makes you happy… unless you’re a serial killer. So uh happy Monday!
