Monday Mantra - This Is What You Woke Up For
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 up...so 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....
You did not wake up today to be mediocre.
You did not wake up this morning to feel sad.
You did not wake up this morning to feel defeated.
You did not wake up this morning to feel depressed.
You did not wake up this morning to wish you were someone else.
You did not wake up this morning to dwell on all of your mistakes and failures.
You did not wake up this morning to live life in the slow lane.
You did not wake up this morning to feel anything but happy.
You woke up this Monday morning to feel something other than all of that. This morning, adjust your perspective and put on a new face. Today make small changes, that ultimately will lead to a big reward. If you start changing the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
You woke up today to live your life to the fullest.
You woke up today to smile, to laugh, and to celebrate all the moments, good and bad.
You woke up this morning to start a new beginning
You woke up this morning to spread joy, and happiness.
You woke up this morning to be the best version of "you" that you can be. And that is the ultimate gift you can give the rest of the world.
This Monday morning I want you to remind yourself of all of your strengths, and successes. I want you to count your blessings, and remind yourself just how far you've come. Today remind yourself that you're amazing. Remind yourself that you've overcome so many obstacles in your life, and all those bad moments have made you into who you are today. This Monday morning, I want you to celebrate yourself. I want you to list all of the things you are grateful for, and take a moment to let it sink in. Be proud of who you are, how far you've come, and what you've overcome.
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.
