☺ Motivational Mondays! ☺

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

Expect and Release! This is a delicate balance that I sometimes have a hard time explaining. I wrote an entire article on Expectations and to not have them. The reason is to release expectation to a desired outcome, so that you become open to what actually comes your way instead of leaving yourself disappointed when things don't go exactly as you imagined. However, it is also good to have Positive Expectations, to visualize in your mind good outcomes as then you will attract such positive outcomes. That is why it is good to have expectations but to release attachment to one particular outcome. Whatever happens, be open to it and make the best of it. Keep your mind Positive.   
Do it Now! If there's something you've always wanted to do then go do it! I know, cliche, "live every day like your last", but if you don't then you could miss out. For example, I just found out that Lacey (the lead singer) of Fyleaf (one of my favourite bands) left the band. I have been wanting to see them foreverrrr but somehow it never lined up, or, to take responsibility, I never made it happen. Now I may never see my favourite band play and Lacey is such an amazing performer, it was definitely on my list of things to do in my life. So, learning the hard way, don't wait or you'll miss out. If there's something you've always wanted to do then do it, make it happen! Because you just never know what may happen. 
Choose how you Feel. We often forget that how we feel is up to us. We have a choice about how we feel. If you feel really sad or down, then make the choice to change that. It’s not always easy but with the right support and motivation you can do it! 
Write, write, and write some more! I've talked about having a "Happy Diary" before and since it's been a while I am going to remind you once again to get writing in it. Writing is a powerful self-motivator, plus things are 70% more likely to become real when you write them down (neat huh?). Use your happy diary to write yourself love letters, tell yourself how amazing you are, who you want to be, what you want your life to be, all the things you're grateful for. Write every single day! If you're stuck in a rut and need to get back on track I guarantee you this practice will get you back on track!  
Be Weird! After all, being weird is just a side effect of being awesome. ;) Be the person you want to be and stop being afraid of what others think. I know I repeat this a lot but it's true. People need to learn to loosen up, have some fun, be ridiculous, and have a damn good time doing it! It is incredibly freeing when you learn to stop taking yourself so seriously and finally be the person you want and enjoy being! 
Go an a Photo adventure! Go for a lovely walk outside and wander taking in the beautiful colours of fall while it lasts. It's such an amazing gift to watch the seasons change, the leaves change colours and drop from the trees. How beautiful! How blessed are we to see that?! Seasons come and go, change happens, so go with the flow and enjoy the moment you're in right now. This week, go for a lovely walk and snap as many photos of all the beautiful trees and colours and nature. :)
"Promise me you'll always remember that you're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." ~Christopher Robin to Winnie the Pooh. We spend entirely too much time taking ourselves down and thinking we are lesser than we are. Spend more time reminding yourself how truly amazing you are. Because you are.  

Now go ahead and have the best damn week ever! Much Love from me to you! 
Create a Nice Day! xo
