Bring it Monday!

Hello! 

  If I’m being honest with you, around this time on Sunday I usually get discouraged. After all, Monday is right around the corner and that means it’s time for “dread” to kick it right? Wrong! What if, instead of dreading the beginning of the work week we practiced gratitude instead? Maybe you don’t have your dream job right now, but at least you have a job. Maybe your commute to work is really long, but isn’t that drive the perfect time to admire Gods works or listen to that podcast you’ve been meaning to catch up on? I’m not downplaying whatever your work situation is right now. I’m simply saying that while you and I are wherever God has us, we should look for the positive details of our situation. After all, being negative can be so draining! 

   So here’s to an awesome Monday to us!

What Inspires You?

Hello!

    I just got back from attending a Bachelorette party in Miami and had an awesome time. I had forgotten how much I miss living in an environment that is so rich with culture. In Miami, the culture is in the food, music, and the way people dress, and talk. I started to realize how inspired I felt and wondered when was the last time I felt that inspired. I really missed having that inspiration. Before I started to go down that negative path of thinking, I started to think about the resources I have now that could inspire me. There are so many times we are waiting for a place or someone to inspire us but we have to realize that instead of waiting, we have the power to inspire ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I think drawing inspiration from people and places is very important but there are so many other things we can be inspired by. It could be the sunset, sunrise, your loved ones or yourself. Together, lets make a habit of taking control over what inspires us. Feel free to tell me something’s that inspire you in the comments.

Celebrating the Small Stuff

Hello, 

   I hope you all are doing well. This past weekend I went to a wedding that my husband was in. It’s a great thing when you witness family and friends gathering to celebrate something positive. I had to wonder, how many people (including myself) make it a habit to celebrate the “smaller” events with loved ones? Don’t get me wrong. Of course a wedding is an occasion that should be celebrated but have you celebrated the “smaller” events recently? If you just rocked a test after studying really hard, celebrate. Maybe you’ve been trying to make a habit of remaining positive in the midst of adversity, celebrate that. When you do celebrate, make sure your family and friends are there to bask in your victory. Here’s to all of us celebrating the “small” stuff.
