Monday Mantra - You Control Your Destiny

Hello lovelies and happy Monday! I've decided to begin a new series on my blog called, "Monday Mantras" Mondays are a day everyone seems to dread and I decided I wanted to help everyone kick it up a notch. Mondays are days we're all feeling a little overwhelmed, drained, and a little wound why not try to tweak the way we view Mondays? Every Monday I will be posting a motivational quote, a mantra if you will -to help not just myself, but others get and stay motivated, to help maintain focus, and get us thinking about our goals and aspirations. I'v chose to begin this new series on my blog because I'm ready to get inspired, and help others in the process.


This weeks Monday Mantra....

Good morning and happy Monday! For the past couple of months I've been terrified. Terrified of making big changes in my life. Terrified to make such a drastic change in my life that now I'm contemplating not even going through with it. To be quite honest, it's pretty silly to allow yourself to hold yourself back from making a change. It's even more silly to allow yourself to stay seated in your comfort zone. You know, that place where we feel safest, but ultimately gets us nowhere. Your life unfolds in proportion to your courage. It's that simple.

In life you have two options: To step forward into growth or step back into safety. 

When you're faced with a big choice, try not to slink back into your safe zone. If we all play it safe all of our lives, what kind of life would that lead to? A mediocre, plain, simple one. For some, that is perfectly enough and comfortable. For me personally, that is not a life I wish to lead.

Why spend every waking moment at a snails pace, minimally growing, just barely getting there safely?

By throwing caution to the wind and proceeding life in the fast lane, a lane unknown filled with surprises...that is a life worth living. Walking through places unknown, out of your comfort zone, that is where the most exciting things happen. Every experience you have in your life shapes you into a new version of yourself. My dear readers, allow yourself to experience those moments. Bask in new waters. Dive into depths unknown. Shake up your life for a moment, and allow yourself to learn a thing or two. Have courage and remove yourself out of your comfort zone, because that will lead you to the next version of yourself. You are in full control of your own destiny, don't be afraid to make it worthwhile. 

I challenge all of you to pick your own Monday mantra, and let it simmer with you. Let it allow you to analyze your choices, thoughts and actions. If you're feeling brave, share it with someone, heck even share it with me. Whatever you choose, I hope it's beautiful.
