Motivational Monday #18

Nothing that is worth it is EVER easy. Remember that – but don’t let that dissuade you from pursuing your dreams.  Accept it as the right path and make it happen.

This reminded me of my favorite like from a Seal song “in a world full of people, only some what to fly – isn’t that crazy?”  Many times we are the ones keeping ourselves on the ground – no one or nothing else.  Why do we do that to ourselves?  Don’t let it happen.

I love this quote.  We often dwell on the meaningless, forget to savor what is good, and let our fears direct our path more than our dreams.  Why do we allow it?  Life is short.  Living it is our only real option.  Why not embrace it, take a deep breath and join the game.  May seem scary and risky, but it’s more fun than sitting on the bench – trust me.

I loved this when I saw it. As a person who often jokes about how much I hate change, this provides real perspective.  No change – no butterflies.  No change – no better person.  Pretty compelling.

This one is one that I feel myself. I think Ashly once wrote a post about the freedom she felt after she realized crying was ok – and started letting herself do it when she needed it versus holding it back.  A weird place to go when you are always trying to repress, but the smiles are much sooner and much better when I do.

Love this look at the “the fingers on your hand”. Totally true! All parts of it. Except I would be inclusive and say the ring finger is for that special person. Then again, my gay cousin just married her partner, so I’m a bit biased about that inclusive need.

And because it’s Monday, I leave you with this:

who can not laugh at a fisting joke.
Enjoy!

    I love your MM posts. In fact, I am going to work out today. Maybe even do a “double-duty” which is to hit the gym and the public pool. 🙂

    I love these posts so much. 🙂

    Crying is still something I don’t do a lot of but I rarely hold back anymore. I never realized how harmful it was to hold things in until I stopped doing it. <3

    I LOVE the kermit image, that’s too funny.
