Motivation Monday #45

Ah Monday! Welcome back. As if Mondays aren’t sad enough already, it’s pouring outside again… which I don’t necessarily mind because I work inside all day and I know that we need this rain. But there is a certain feeling that comes with a gloomy rainy day. It can be enjoyable if you’re spending the day on the couch snuggled up with a blanket and some hot tea, but when you’re going to school or work it just kind of puts a damper on things (literally- lol).

So I’m writing today not only to motivate you, but to motivate myself as well. I found this quote that you might read and think “well duh!” but it felt like the right quote to post so here we go.

“The grass is greener where you water it”

Like, Duh right? Well it’s like saying that if you put some effort into the aspects of your life that you want to be better, then they will surely become better.


Even though the rain can be annoying, it has turned our dirt patch of a yard into a luscious patch of greenery… well mostly weeds but still. It keeps the dogs from tracking little muddy paw prints into the house, so for me… this quote even has a literal meaning.. no matter how silly.

So I hope you go out and water your figurative grass today. Water the things that you want to grow in your life. Create a life that will make others wonder how you can afford your water bill 🙂

Motivation Monday #43

It’s Monday again and I’m super excited that we’re getting some more rain!

Thanksgiving is only a few days away and that means you probably have a long weekend coming your way. Use this Monday to list each of the things that you are thankful for, once you have a list filled with the things that make you happy, this Monday will seem like no big deal in comparison.

Remember that Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and feel grateful, it shouldn’t be a time to camp out at Best Buy or shove people out of your way at Walmart to get a good deal on things that you don’t really need. I’ve done it before and it really wasn’t even worth it. Spend this Thursday and Friday appreciating the things you already have rather than fighting with strangers for things you don’t have.

Remember, there is always Cyber Monday if you want to find good deals on Christmas presents… and online shopping is a lot easier anyway!

Have a beautiful Monday!
