Motivational Monday

.
  
There are times in life where we just need to stop and re-set.
Times where we just need to take a break from things.
To evaluate things.
To clear our minds.
To focus on what truly matters.
 
Lately I have been a little absent from this little ol' blog of mine.
I have just needed time to myself.
To use this time as an opportunity to step back and get some perspective. 
 
 Many times we make problems worse by not wanting to admit they exist. It seems easier to just simply avoid the problem, rather than face up to it and deal with it. Ultimately, the avoidance becomes more painful than the original problem.
 
 Before responding to what life throws at you, give yourself a minute.
Instead of letting the situation control you, stop and think about it for awhile. Instead of trying to prove something, find a way to improve things. 

Accept that life is full of problems, and that it is through the pain of resolving these problems, that we learn and grow.
 
 Life is full of challenges. Have the courage to look at them clearly, and you’ll see that they are all opportunities in disguise.

Motivational Monday


For life to ever be good, you must choose to see it and live it as good right now. Live what you love, and love what you live. Anything less is a painful and frustrating waste of your precious time. Whatever is going on in your life that you do not like.... move on and get over it. If you keep your doubts and negative feelings bottled up inside, they eventually gain control of you.

You can hope for the best, and though your hope points you in a positive direction it cannot get you there on its own. What will get you there is to use this moment, right now, in a positive and effective way.

Rather than wishing for things to be different, work to make things better.
You have the power and the resources to make life good now
Choose to make it that way.

Put all of your heart and drive into into your work, into the big things and the all the little ones. 

Live what you love. 
Give the power of your attention and action to it, and you will come to love it even more. Love what you live, and each thing you do gives you a true way to express real joy.
  
Love your life unconditionally, live it fully, and experience it on the highest, most truthful and beautiful level.

Motivational Monday



 
Do you ever look back on things and wonder where you would be today if you made a different choice in that moment
 
Every cause has an effect and every choice has a consequence.
If the consequences that come your way are not what you desire, there is a  way to change them.... that way is by making different choices.
 Fortune and misfortune are the result of choices.
 
 You have the ability to point your life in whatever direction you choose.The choice is yours.... in every moment, every situation and every decision. 

 There are times that we wish that never happened.
There are also times we wish we could just go back to and re-live each and every moment.
 
Timing is everything and nothing.
Timing means everything when it comes to decisions you make in that moment. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about time. Sometimes things happen at the right time and sometimes things aren't meant to be during that given time.

We take for granted many little things, people that are important to us and relationships that are special. We only realize their true value once they are gone.  
 
 Know that the most important things in life are the people you love and love you back. Share precious moments with family and friends while they are still around, while you still can. Show them you love them. Tell them you love them. This is your moment!

"Sometimes the most ordinary things can be made extraordinary simply by doing them with the right people." - Nicholas Sparks
 
Don't take moments for granted.

Things I live for

Sundays
 I often work on Saturday so Sunday is one of my favorite days. 
I get up, go to church and have the day to myself to do whatever my little heart desires.
Summer days
 It's just something about the summer that makes me happy. 
It always represents something happy in my life. It is hard to be in a bad mood with longer days, cool beverages, summer activities a vacation and a nice tan.
It's my favorite season. Close tie with fall. But there is just something special about the summer. It always represented such a happy time in my life, and still does, and I've always just felt better during this season of the year. I wake up happier. I'm more productive throughout the day. And overall, we just have so much more fun. I think having kids has also gotten me more excited about this season. Actually, every season. There is always something to look forward to, and with summer, it will always represent water, family vacation, and sunshine. Like I said, I love me some summer days. - See more at: http://www.frommrstomama.com/#sthash.YfgLuBEh.dpuf

Making memories
The best conversations include memorable times with great people
 
This man 

Cuddling
One of my favorite things and one of Brad's least favorite things....
So I enjoy the times I get with him or just snuggle with my fur child instead :)  
Family

Most people who enter your life are temporary, but family is forever and really the only people who see you at your absolute best and worst, but still manage to love you unconditionally.
Simple Days
Because life can be in full speed and crazy - I enjoy nice relaxing simple days

Music 
Always seems to be the perfect addition to whatever your mood may be 
 
My Beauty Treatments:
I am a girly girl. 
A girl that loves to be pampered and will make a plan to have a beauty treatments at any cost. I have get a mani/pedi on the reg. I spend many lunch breaks getting a quick tan. And I like to spoil myself with massages. This is my time out to relax and feel good.
 
Relaxing poolside
Kicked back, relaxed and soaking up the sun

My morning cup of joe

Because this girl needs a little pep in her step in the mornings
 
A DVR full of trashy TV
It's just something about watching someone else's drama filled life make me feel so much better about the "drama" I put up with in mine. 
The love from my little fur baby
It is hard to have a bad day when you have the unconditional affection from your dog.
 
The Holidays 
They always put me in a better mood. 
There is nothing better than a house filled with Christmas decorations and presents under the tree

Motivational Monday




Today is a new day.
 Make the best of it. 
Don’t fill it with complaints. 
Use today to accomplish something.

Is there a problem that’s been bothering you? 
Start making steps forward to solve it. 
Pretending like it’s not there won’t make it go away. 
Start working on it today. 

Is there a goal you want to achieve?
 Begin it today. 
Make a good start, and make the commitment to work on it every day until it is finished. There will always be a good excuse not to, but excuses do not get things finished.
Just do it.

Consider how many difficult things would be far less difficult with a little patience. It is important to have a sense of urgency, yet it is just as important to balance that with patience.

Success comes when you can act with urgency and then are patient about achieving results. When you have the patience to continue making the effort, then you’ll reach the goal.
Patience will help you to see the big picture. Patience can dramatically improve your relationships with others, and reduce the level of stress in your life.

Patience is a sign of strength.
Good things will come of your time when you are patient. 
 Be patient, be strong, be positive and enjoy every moment of life as it unfolds.

Every Summer Has a Story


In every girls life there is a story that she will never forget that involves a boy and a summer where it all began. 
Our story began the summer of 2007. 
Six years ago today I met the man who later became my husband. 

We happened to be in the right place, at the right time...
...and I would have it no other way. 

I can't imagine my life now without him being in it and I'm thanking God for us being in the same place at the same time.

Motivational Monday

.

 
 
 With the craziness that life often brings us - sometimes we just need calm, relaxing days to ourselves. Days spent doing the things we want to do, when we want to do them. 
 
This is often what I try to do on my days off. 
Get rid of all the stress and anxiety of my daily work week routines and take time to myself. On my days off I usually try to get a mani/pedi, massage, lay out or lay in the tanning bed, read a book, or clear off the trashy reality TV off of my DVR... and it's amazing how much better I feel with a clean house. It is also easier to get this done while hubby is gone to work.
 
Taking time to yourself is needed. So I encourage you to sit back, relax and do the things you want to do and forget about all the hustle and bustle for a day.
