This is going to sound SO lame. But every Monday, I go on Pinterest and read some Monday Motivation quotes. It sounds so stupid, but I swear it works. Sometimes you just need that little extra kick to get you pumped on a Monday! I am going to share some of my favorites with you today. But first, a little bit about what has been going on in my life.
Shop This Post:
I know what you’re thinking, I work from home, I make my own schedule, I am my own boss, so why do I need Monday Motivation? The truth is, I spread myself too thin almost every day. And I am always burnt out, tired, and complaining. I don’t manage my stress well, at all. So this past month, I have really made a solid effort to achieve some balance in my life. And that is starting with focusing on not letting stress control me. Obviously, easier said than done. But I am taking time off when I need it, and I think that is helping immensely.
I can’t be everywhere at once, and I finally needed to prioritize my life, because I found myself with no time for the things I loved the most: Joe, reading, spending time with my friends, or going to the gym. I used to always measure success by who was the busiest; but now I am seeing clearly that successful people are the ones that have time to rest, recover, and regroup. And that is probably why they are successful.
I have been saying no to events, wearing less makeup, wearing leggings and comfy sweatshirts because I can, not doing my hair that often, and stopped feeling guilty about being selfish. And you know what? I feel so much happier. This is not the post I had intended to write at all, but sometimes I just need to let stuff out.
Now, onto the Monday Motivation Quotes.
The Best Monday Motivation:
Be a fountain, not a drain.
You can, you should. And if you’re brave enough to start, you will.
It’s a good week to have a good week.
You’re one day closer to your goal.
There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.
The distance between your dreams and reality is called action.
Stop hanging around people who don’t want to win.
Ideas are shit without execution.
A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows she has none.
Every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams, or get up and chase them.
