Motivation Monday // Motivation

The word for this week motivation Monday? Yes, you guessed it – motivation. (so cliche of me, right.)

For whatever reason, I’m feeling so drained from this weekend. I’m not exactly sure why, since I wasn’t crazy busy, but I never felt like I really recovered from the week. I need my sleep, I need my peace and quiet, I need time to just myself, and I need a clean apartment. I know if I don’t get those things, it’s hard for me to fully function. To be honest, I didn’t even want to write this blog post, and was almost settled on the idea of “oh.. well, this Monday can skip”. But then I thought about all of you readers who faithfully come to this blog, even if it’s just on Mondays, to read this column.

I was perusing around pinterest (typical Sunday activity of mine) and stumbled upon this quote. I knew I had to share.

I have BIG dreams. BIG plans. BIG things that I want to do, accomplish, experience, and see. I realize that sometimes those things take sacrifice, and a little push – sometimes one that I can only give myself. So today (meaning Sunday night since that’s when I’m writing this..) I mustered up 20 minutes of #GSD (thanks Meg) and forced my fingers to type.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t always do that. I disconnect, take breaks, and don’t post when I need to. But tonight, I stared at what I wanted and did one small thing to make my big picture happen. Maybe for you, that’s getting your butt off your chair and getting to the gym. Or saying no to those cookies in the cabinet because you’re eating better. Whatever, it is, you can make your big picture happen with one small step today.

It’s Monday – it’s your day. The whole 14 hours are ahead of you. Muster up 20 minutes of motivation and GO.
