Motivational Monday - Grown Up Realization

 Rainy days and Mondays often get you down. 
 The weekend is over. Your alarm has gone off more than 3 times. It is time to get up and go to work again but it's cold and rainy and quite frankly the warm blankets and dark room sound so much better than getting up to face the day. 
 
You know those days when you wake up and you just feel discouraged? Those days you just don't want to go to work but you go through the day and go through the motions. Those days that you find yourself doubting why some things are the way they are. Those days that it is already dark when you get home from work and all you want to do is change into your yoga pants and cuddle up under your favorite blanket of the couch with your dog and your husband.


Those days....
I have them. Often.
 
 It is easy for me to sometimes get discouraged. 
To take things for granted. 
To go through the motions each day because I have fallen into a routine. 



 I have had a "grown-up" realization.


As hard and disappointing as life can be, it is still a gift. 
I am blessed. 
It could be so much worse. 
Life may not always be as comfortable or as ideal as we would wish. 
But if we look at it the right way, through a fresh perspective - it is ever so beautiful.

 I have realized that -
Just taking a walk can change your whole perspective.
Life is what you make of it. 
You should not take your job for granted for so many other people do not have one.
You shouldn't be afraid to fail. You should be afraid to not try.
You loved more than you will ever know.
You are beautiful just the way you are.
Waiting for someone else to make you happy is the surest way to be sad.
  


 
Gratitude 
is the single
 most important ingredient 
to living a 
successful 
and
 fulfilled  
life
