Motivation for your Monday

I feel like I am in a constant state of decluttering my house.  It seems that just as I get rid of everything we don't want or need, I find another stash of things that I didn't realize we had.  However, when we are surrounded by only those things that we love, it makes such a difference in our home.  I tend to spend the most time in those rooms that don't have any extra items because of the peace I find there.  So, wouldn't it be awesome to feel that peace all over the house?  That's the goal!

This week, I challenge you to take a room in your house and get rid of anything you don't love or truly need.  Take some time to notice if you feel any different in this room after you've done that.  Also, try to notice if your mind feels less cluttered.  I find that the messier my house is, the messier my brain is and I have a harder time organizing my thoughts and getting things done.  Our surroundings make a difference!

Motivational Monday

For today, here is one of my favorite quotes.

What do you agree or disagree?

Motivational Monday

I am often guilty of getting caught up in the little details of things that I want to do.  Instead of just getting to work, I make lists upon lists and make delays based on a perception that I need to do "A" before I can do "B".  But it really does just come down to this excellent quote by Amelia Earhart.

If there's something that you want to do that you've been putting off, just do it.  It's the easiest and most direct way to accomplish something - just do it!

Go get it this Monday!

Motivational Monday

Even when we want to do something so badly that the very thought of it stirs our souls, it can be so hard to make the leap and try it.  It could be a fear of failure or the vulnerability of putting our selves out there in uncertain terrain that causes people to shrink back from their dreams, but we need to conquer whatever it is that is holding us back again and again.

Take this quote by Kurt Vonnegut with you today.

When we leap, sometimes we'll fly and sometimes we'll fail, but each time we will be strengthening our wings and preparing ourselves for the next jump.  Don't let fear or vulnerability hold you back.  Take a running jump, see what happens, and develop those wings so that one day, you can fly.

Motivation for your Monday

Today, I want you to think about this:

This thought came to me late one night last week and it really hit me.  It really is the cumulative effort of each day that gets you to where you want to go.  Likewise, it's the cumulative lack of effort that keeps you stagnant.  There are definitely "off" days, but the days that you take a much needed break will just provide the fuel for you to kill it when you get back to work.  Those days are necessary, but you still have to get back to work at some point.

Whether today is a break day or a "hit it hard" day, your efforts today make a difference in the long run.  Make decisions that will ultimately serve your bigger goals and desires.  Don't be discouraged, each day is like a step at a time.  Do what you can do today and tomorrow you'll have something else or something more to accomplish.

You got this!
