Motivation Monday #26

Happy Monday friends! Today I want to motivate you to do something that you have always wanted to do, but have never had the courage and/or time to actually do it. Mondays are a lot better when you have something to look forward to so think of this Monday as another step closer to finally doing that thing you’ve always wanted to do.

Here are a few things that I could think of that you might want to try!

  • Go skydiving
  • Buy that pair of shoes you love- then go out and flaunt them
  • Take a ceramics class
  • Go to disneyland
  • Get a dog
  • Go on an evening hike
  • Get a tattoo
  • Go scuba diving
  • Go on a tropical vacation
  • Attend the live filming of a talk show
  • Go parasailing
  •  Attend a wine and paint night
  • Go to a museum
  • Go zip lining
  • Take a cooking class
  • Go to a drive-in movie
  • Read a good book
  • Make a new friend
  • Start a blog!

I could go on forever but it’s all about what you really want and that’s something you have to figure out for yourself!  Now start thinking of what you would love to do and have a beautiful week 🙂

Motivation Monday #19

Happy Monday! I hope all of the moms out there had a special day being celebrated yesterday. I had a lot of fun at a Mother’s day brunch with my mom, grandma and aunt. It’s always a good time when I’m surrounded by family.

Although it was a great day, I totally over-indulged at the brunch and ate way more than I should have. I can never say no to sweets! And that cheesecake was staring at me. From eating so many delicious desserts, I felt way too disgusting to even think about working out.

As the day was coming to an end I felt guilty for not treating my body with better care. So I made a list of things that I would like to try to do every day, and I wrote them out on the mirror in my room (with an expo marker) as a daily reminder.

This way, I will wake up each day with a clear reminder of what I need to do to have a happy life. Here’s what mine looks like:

( I started with a quote) “Wake up. Work Hard. Be Kind. Go to sleep”

  • Don’t stress the small stuff
  • Workout
  • Read books
  • Drink more water and green tea
  • Pray everyday!!!
  • Cook and Clean (AKA stop spending money at restaurants!)
  • Not too much caffeine
  • Smile often 🙂
  • Spend lots of time with family & friends

I know I have said it before but I love to be organized, part of that quality means that I am constantly making LISTS! I love having a visual to remind myself what I need to do. Use this Monday to make a list of your own, it may not look exactly like mine but thats ok. Just jot down the things that make you happy (or things that you NEED to get done) and make time to do them!

Have a fantastic week!! XOXO
