I got such a positivity kick out of writing my last motivation/inspiration post , that I have decided to keep it going. I was going to call it Motivational Monday, but according to Google, that’s not very original. Any ideas?? Oh, well. We don’t have to label everything!
Here are the things that I would like to be inspired by this week!
This past week, I learnt that sometimes everything is just out of my hands. You have those crazy days where you’re reliant on someone else’s needs/timetables, you can’t control your environment or your child’s routine and you’re completely at the whim of everybody else. It’s good to realise you just have to let go and feel your way through. Trust me. Otherwise it means a whole lot of sleepless nights or tense evenings as you try to plot every little move for the next day, when the truth of the matter is that you can’t.
And on that note, I must remind myself that worrying about those things I cannot control is just a waste of my energy and time! I must replace worrying, with constructive planning. If there is nothing I can control, I need to just let it go. No more waking in the middle of the night!!!
OK, so I need to get my butt back in gear. I’ve had a very exhausting week or so and I need to get back on track. I need to not give up on my exercise regime or my calorie control. Just because I mess up a little or get too busy to exercise the way I’d like one day, does not mean I shouldn’t treat each new day as an opportunity to push on in a positive way!
I need to remember to laugh. Find the funny side of something that at first does not seem so hilarious. Lighten up. Not worry so much. Watch a comedy. Have a secret giggle when the Little Mister is running around in nothing but a nappy, with a stolen broomstick, knocking things over with it and making hilarious faces because he thinks we don’t know (before sneaking up on him and giving him a serious face and a “And…what do you think you’re doing?”). I’ve got to make sure I don’t get bogged down with the intense stuff 🙂
In real life (and in my blogging), I often find my creativity blocked because I’m too busy worrying about whether or not everyone will be pleased with what I have to offer. I sometimes forget that you can’t be bosom buddies with everyone and that if I don’t love, or even like, everyone I meet, then they have the right to feel the same (possibly about me)! I’m finally reaching a great place where I feel like I have accepted all of who I am and I’m cool with that (self improvement included of course). I hope this will remind me in those shakier moments 🙂
What is motivating you this week?
