Ah, Mondays. The glory of a new week. Mondays can definitely be rough — but look at it this way. It’s the start of a new week! Whatever happened last week doesn’t matter; it’s in the past. You have the opportunity of a fresh start. Anything can happen this week. Take it one day at a time. You’ve got this.
I’m a sucker for inspirational/motivational quotes, so I wanted to kick off this week by pulling out some of my favorites for you guys. What’s your favorite?
- “There is strength inside you that you have yet to discover.”
- “Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point.

- “The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
- “You are enough. You are so enough, it’s amazing how enough you are.”
“If nothing else, one day you can look someone straight in the eyes and say
‘But I lived through it. And it made me who I am today.’ ” – Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You
