"Motivational Mondays" are fabulous tips to get you excited and pumped for the week!

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

☺ Law of Attraction tip: The more you talk about something, the more you are inviting into your life. This can be used for good when we're conscious of it, bad if we choose to ignore it. If you are constantly talking about being sick, being depressed, not having money, etc. then you will invite more of that into your life. If you talk more about your joys then you will invite more joys into your life and healing and the world will be better. ;)
☺ Be direct with people. This is all about learning to stick up for yourself and speaking up. While I generally promote saying yes to things, there is a balance so learn to fight the urge to say yes to everyone all the time. It’s okay to say no in a nice way. You’ll lose friends if you agree to do something and then just hope it fades away or they forget. Just be honest now and avoid the guilt later.
☺ Be Spontaneous! Have you done anything spontaneous lately? Our friends visited last week and we went for a midnight swim in the lake--it was hella fun. Spontaneity is so fun, so go for it, say yes ;) and step out of your comfort zone this week.
☺ Sleep in. Admittedly, I rarely sleep in. I'm usually perfect on 7 hours of sleep and I'm awake and ready to go. However, some weeks are draining (especially with hot weather, or cold weather, or rainy days, or work days, or…) so sleep helps restore our balance and puts our minds and bodies at much needed rest. Take a few nights this week and have a good long deep sleep in. Try to remove anything that might interrupt that sleep; loud noises (wear earplugs, alarms, pets, etc.). Don't sleep in every day though, you should be well rested but sleeping in too much can be just as draining as not getting enough sleep.
☺ You are responsible for your own happiness. Yes yes, this one I say all the time, but it's absolutely true. You Choose your Happiness! Stop blaming everyone and everything else if you aren’t there yet. And don't get discouraged if you aren't there yet either; trying means progress, complaining means taking steps backwards. If you're not there yet, Fix it. No one owes you anything. And never compare your happiness to someone else's, we're all at different stages and you never know what's going on beneath the surface of another person's life.
☺ Embrace your Passions! Life is too short not to take time every day (or as often as possible for you) to obsess over your passions. Make it work, rearrange your schedule or habits so that you have that time for yourself and your joys. Take time for your passions and let them be the beat of your heart.
☺ "If you look out over an ocean, you will see a seemingly infinite number of waves rippling across the horizon. If you were to visit the ocean floor, however, you would experience a vast, uninterrupted stillness. By going beyond our thoughts, we access the underlying field of silence that lies within." - Eat. Taste. Heal.
Don't forget to Create a Nice Day! To keep smiling, laughing, and spending time on joy!
Much love from me to you!
