We're taking back Mondays!!!
"Motivational Mondays" are fabulous tips to get you excited and pumped for the week!
Feeling low? Moody? Down on life? Well, that's what these posts are for! Time to feel awesome again and get some Positivity rolling! Just because it's Monday doesn't mean you can't have fun, smile, and enjoy Today! Apply these tips to your week and try to tell me that you don't start to see an improvement in your life! ;)
It's all about You! Change your perception, change your attitude, love your life! xo
☺ Say "Thank You." Don't use the words "thank you" without giving them meaning. We too often do, from some sort of taught sense of manners when we were younger and from habits today. Say "thank you" more and say it with meaning. Give the words genuine love and attention. Not only will you fill someone else's day with genuine gratitude but you'll also welcome gratitude into your own life.
☺ Do something for the first time! When was the last time you did something for the first time? Truth is, every day you are doing something for the first time because you've never lived this moment before. Har! However, I am referring to something beyond that. Seek out a new experience, a new activity, something you'll remember. Something that will make you go; Ha! I've never done this before! ;)
☺ Look at the world with Love! There is beauty, love, and positivity to be found in anything and everything imaginable, all we have to do is choose to see it. The difference between a person living their life to the fullest joy, is that they are choosing to see what others fail to. Love. Choose to look at the world with eyes of love.
☺ "I'm Perfect" or "Imperfect" I love how the word "imperfect" and the phrase "I'm perfect" are the same. Your imperfections are what make you perfect. Always remember you are lovely just the way you are. ♥
☺ Find ten things you love about your workday. Yeah, yeah, going to work is no fun. Mondays suck because it's back to the work week. Work sucks. Obviously work is going to suck if you go in every Monday with this awful attitude. Switch it around. Nothing is going to change the fact you have to go log in your hours, so make the best of being there. Throughout your day, list in your head all the things you love about your job, your work, your day. If you can't list ten then you're not trying hard enough and you're not seeking out the gratitude. It's easy once you get rolling. So enjoy your day!
☺ Have a Good Laugh! Find something that will make you laugh so hard you'll cry! Like "My Paradox the Dog." (http://theoatmeal.com/comics/dog_paradox) I saw this yesterday and, yeah, I already shared it on my Facebook wall, but I want to share it again because I thought it was hilarious and who doesn't want to have a good laugh? Laughter is fantastic for the soul, so find as many things as possible this week to make you laugh, even if they are ridiculous. :)
☺ "When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us." ~Helen Keller. You only live this moment once, why compare it to a past experience? Truth is that if you had an awesome month, year, or day, it does not benefit you to continually be comparing every other day of your life to that moment of happiness. Yes, it may have been awesome, but you will never experience that exact same moment again, and that is a good thing. You have a new day and a new opportunity to experience something brand new and that can be just as awesome in its own way. So stop comparing your present to your past or you'll miss out on the happiness right before your nose.
