Motivational Monday

I should have used this for my post yesterday, but the sentiment is perfect any day.  Surprise yourself.  What a great message.  I remember the times I have surprised myself. I remember how empowering it is.  Discover that feeling and hold onto it by repeating it.

We always look at what is wrong, get frustrated, and feel like we need to do more.  Instead, look at the beauty – the positive – the wonderful and savor the happy.

I’m going to modify that last line.  Somewhere along the line, there’s someone who truly thinks you are something.  
Hearing and admitting the truth means accepting your part in it all. It may mean accepting you have in the situation. It may mean you have to look and see you have left some dead bodies in your wake.  It may mean having to say “i’m sorry” or you may have to admit you aren’t perfect.  But it is also freeing.  Freeing because you don’t have to hold the illusion.  You can be you. You can be human making mistakes.  You can grow as a person.  What truth don’t you want to hear?
And if in doubt, be motivated by this:
Happy Monday!

  1. I like the last one. 🙂 At the beach this summer I saw a decorative sign that said, “Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry.” Your pic reminded me of that.

  2. I love your Motivational Mondays. 🙂
