Hello, beautiful! Guess what…it’s Monday morning! And because it’s Monday, it’s time to hit you with a little Monday morning motivation. On this particular Monday I know I’m already kind of dreading the busy schedule that awaits me this week. But dread no more! Let’s get a little motivation together and get this week going.

Monday Morning Motivation
Rub off those heavy eyes on this Monday morning. It might not feel like it yet, but you have a lot of great things to look forward to this week. You’re awake, you’re alive, and you have this whole day ahead of you. And while schedules may be crazy and life might be exhausting at times, I promise you’ll find at least ONE thing this week that’s worth being hyped for. Let’s do this!
“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”— Roy T. Bennett
Often times motivational quotes come from inspirational books. If you’re on the hunt for a good read full of conflict, great story lines and motivational characters then you should check out “Fish in a Tree” by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. Even though it’s meant for a younger audience, the story line will still pull at your heartstrings. Ally, the main character, is a preteen that truly believes she will never do better than what she is doing now. What Ally doesn’t know is that she’s struggling with dyslexia. But when she meets a certain teacher, her life and the way she views herself will change forever. I would tell you more, but I don’t want to give it away. Do yourself a favor and check this book out!
I love the motivational and inspirational signs that I find on a whim. This past week, as I was walking into therapy, I noticed this on the sidewalk. My therapist’s office is located inside of a church complex, but I find this fitting in both scenarios (church and therapy). No matter what point of life my readers may find themselves in, all are welcome to join me for this Monday morning motivation.
The last thing I leave you with this week is not another recipe. This week I find myself in the middle of a 21-day elimination diet. I am missing my sugar, my caffeine and my bread. As frustrated as I get, I am determined to keep pushing forward. I’m not doing it because I want to lose weight (although that would be great). I’m doing it because I want to be healthier overall. If you are struggling to stay on track with your health goals, you got this! No one said it would be easy, but it will be totally worth it.
What will you do on this Monday? I hope you have a wonderful day. Put that smile on, step on out, and take charge of your week. You’ve got this!
