Hello and welcome to my blog! Welcome to today’s Motivational Monday. I love Mondays, so I normally don’t need much motivation. But with everything that’s going on in the world, it’s enough to dampen anyone’s spirit. I put together a few motivational phrases to help raise your vibration a bit.
A little motivation for your Monday
Happiness is not found in things you possess, but in what you have the courage to release.
The media has us believing we need to own more things in order to be happy, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The more detached you are from material possessions, the happier you’ll be.
Nothing is a waste of time if you learned something.
You will fail several times on the way to succeed. But a failure is not a failure unless you learned nothing. So make sure you find the lesson in every setback so you don’t repeat any mistakes.
Never feel guilty for choosing yourself.
The world is divided into selfish people and selfless people. Then there are those in the middle. The ones who think people pleasing is being selfless and creating boundaries is selfish. This is your reminder that it’s okay to choose yourself sometimes if choosing others is harming your mental health.
Hold up your head! You were not made for failure, you were made for victory. Go forward with joyful confidence.
Having a defeated personality invite defeat. You are not a victim of your reality. You are the artist. Go create your own reality. Dream. Do. Be victorious.
Never be a prisoner of your past. It was just a lesson, not a life sentence.
A lot of us get hung up on the past and repeat their mistakes on a loop. Learn from your past, just don’t keep reliving it.
Just enjoy where you are now.
There is no time like the present. Be mindful of where you are, literally and figuratively. Focus on your surroundings, and enjoy every detail. Appreciate where you are in life. You’ve come a long way from where you were. You don’t need to wait until you reach the top to be happy. Enjoy the journey as it comes.
Celebrate every win, no matter how small.
If you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle, every day you successfully eat healthy is a win. If you’re trying to write a book, every page is a win. Make a plan and take small steps. Don’t be indimidated by the enormity of your dream. Take it one step at a time and celebrate each step.
Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose.
Roaming around aimlessly will leave you anxious and depressed. You need to have a purpose, a why, a reason to get out of bed in the morning. We don’t live to eat, sleep, and repeat.
You are not weak for needing rest.
Life can be overwhelming sometimes. You don’t have to get everything done all the time. If you feel tired, stressed or overwhelmed, it’s okay to take a step back and rest when you’re tired. You can’t hustle 24/7 or you’ll burn out.
True happiness is to enjoy the present without anxious dependence on the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have.
Finally, an accurate definition of happiness everyone!
