Motivational Monday

 ...  Some people might wonder why I am always quiet around them ...
I kid.
Kind of.
I am the type of person that would rather NOT say anything, than to say something to hurt someone else's feelings.
Before you say something, think about how you would feel if someone said it to you. 
You could be having a great day until someone says that one thing that can completely turn your day around. That one thing can stick with you. That one thing you say, you will not be able to take back.
Saying things without thinking them through can be hurtful to the recipient of those words as well as you.
  Why take the chance to hurt someone?

Motivational Monday

The great thing about today is that it’s wide open. 
Anything could happen.
 Today is full of choices and opportunity.

Are you not satisfied with some part of your life? 
Make the first steps towards changing it today.

Is there something you truly desire to have, to become, to experience, or to create? 
You should do it.
Today you can begin to make it happen.

This day you are able to make all sorts of choices.
Today is your opportunity to make a real difference in your life.
Today, anything could happen... but what will you choose to do?

Thanks a lot society

 When you are growing up, you often set goals for your future. 
You are asked in school to make short term and long term goals for yourself. 
When I grow up I want to be ____. 
By age ___ I want to be married.
By age ___ I want to start a family.

 At a younger age you think you have it all figured out. You think that in a certain amount of time you will find your prince charming, snag the job of your dreams and live happily ever after.
Then reality happens and those "goals" don't exactly go as planned. 
Your dreams and goals begin to change.
You get a dose of reality and learn that things don't always go as planned but they always seem to have a way of working out. You go through a few heartbreaks until you find the one you will marry. You interview for jobs you want but do not get. You go from one job to another. Or go to work each day knowing this isn't what you want to "be" for the rest of your life. Then you realize that you haven't quite got it all figured out. 

Sometimes I wish I would get this big sign of what "it is" that I really want to do. 
Sure we all still have dreams and goals. 
Maybe they aren't the same as they were when we were younger but it's something we all want to achieve.
I am married, have no children and have a good job - and I am okay with that. There are things I wish would change, and eventually, they will. I know that there are some things we have to do to get where we want to be. I have learned that you don't always get what you want. That things are not always perfect... and I am perfectly okay with that. 
I may not know what my next step will be. My next career path or even the next town/city we will live in. I do not know when we will have children and expand our family of two. I may not know where my life is headed or if it will change but that is the way life goes, right?
 We often hope and dream for things that in reality will never happen. Thanks a lot society. Although we set these often unrealistic expectations for ourselves, it is those goals that push us to achieve things that otherwise we may never strive for. 
So accept where you are and what you have and keep setting goals to better yourself.

Motivational Monday

This day is an investment you are making in your life. 
 Invest it wisely. 

Be inspired by the opportunity of today.The things you do today can play a large role into the future in either a positive or negative way. With your actions, choose to create a future with rewards and satisfaction rather than future with regret.You know those things you've always wanted to do? You should do them. Start now.

As things come up in life... things that might not go your way... remind yourself how incredibly fortunate you are. You can choose to look at life as just another ordinary day or you can live in the moment and enjoy every second of this precious life.
Life is a beautiful and rewarding journey. Make the best of it in each moment. You cannot save time until later. Invest yourself fully now while it it is still here. Give your best each and every day and forget about the little things that do not truly matter.

In with the new

Okay so maybe saying y'all twice in a row wasn't necessary but you should know that when I say y'all twice that I am getting excited about something. Excited might be an understatement. Remember when I posted my grown up wish list? Well it is time to cross off one more thing. The last thing on the list is now crossed off! That's right - this girl got the large tufted headboard! If you follow my Instagram then you have already seen it. But for those of you who have not here it is.
7 feet tall, tufted, mirrored
...I'm in love
 So thankful to have a husband that is also quite the handyman

also I am debuting a new 'do. 
Sometimes change is a good thing
