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
☺ Have a Damn Good Day! Remember remember that You You You are in control of your day. Only You have the power to create a damn good day. Only You can wake up in the morning and Decide that you are going to have an awesome day. If you wake up in the morning, drag your ass out of bed and start off in a fowl mood and then have a shitty day, well guess what? That's on You! Change your attitude and you'll change your life. So if you want to have a Damn Good Day, then make that decision and go out and have a Damn Good Day! Stop with the excuses and make it happen!
☺ Have a Good Cry. When stress and emotions build we often bury them. For whatever reason we feel the need to stop ourselves from crying and truly Feeling emotions. Well, if you don't let them out then they build in your body as stress and illnesses and you're just burying your problems instead of resolving them. Learn to resolve your issues by first working through your emotion. If you need to then have a good cry and let it all out. Find ways of releasing emotions in a good way so that you do not release them in self-destructive manners. Choose to Be True to your emotions so you can truly heal and move forward.
☺ Value Yourself! I've talked a lot this week about loving yourself and getting through insecurities. Well, I want you to continue with these practices. It is too easy to feel insecure so make it a habit to practice self-love, to focus attention on loving and appreciating yourself. You are super duper wonderful, never ever forget that!
☺ Be in the Present Moment! Am I repeating myself? Absolutely! Why? Because this is a lesson that needs to be engraved into your minds. Practice makes perfect, and reminders help you to remember to practice. When we are torn from the present moment our minds easily worry, become stressed about the future, or sad about the past. The present moment is a place of good things, of receiving what you want or need. If you are not in the present moment then you could be missing out on what is most important and valuable. Plus, if you're always in the past or future then you truly are missing out on what's right in front of you and Life in general. After all, Life is Now!
☺ Be Spontaneous! I just got back from a very spontaneous trip with one of my besties this weekend. I was wishy washy about going and then decided that I needed to get back to being more spontaneous and saying yet again, so I did it. And who new? Had a fantastic time! ;) It's far too easy to make up excuses not to do fun things when we are feeling lazy. We get so stuck in habits and comforts that adventure sometimes doesn't entice us. Make more effort to be spontaneous and just say "Yes" to invitations and there to life.
☺ Make Others Happy! I take it upon myself to write these Motivational Mondays posts and all my other Inspirational posts because if it changes one person's life then I feel my job is done. Take it upon yourself this week to make someone else happy. This can be as simple as just Listening to a friend, offering some advice, and being completely non-judgmental and open.
☺ Listen sans Judgement… So many people have a hard time talking about their problems out of fear that they will be judged or seen as weak. Talking is great, listening is just as important. Be an open ear for people to turn to. Show them that you are supportive and always there. Lending an open ear means leaving your judgements at the door. If you haven't been in another's shoes (which you never will) then you simply cannot judge. Judging is insecurities and your insecurities are for you to deal with, not unleash upon others. So, be supportive and listen with an open heart and mind. Put yourself in their shoes. It's not difficult, and you'll learn a lot about life and yourself by just listening to other people, And you get to be a good friend. Wins all around!
☺ "Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you're in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you." ~ Deepak Chopra
Much Love from me to you!
Now get out there and remember to Create the Best Damn Day ever! ;)
