Torna a lunedì my loves. Seriously though, I cannot say that I am happy to be back at Monday. Although the weekend was filled with fun activities, it went by so quickly and I just don’t think I was prepared for today. While I was originally writing out a Motivational Monday that would be inspired by the Christmas holidays, it just didn’t feel right. So, I decided to resort to a good ol’ fashioned pick me up.
I’ll be honest with you all, today wasn’t the best day and I feel somewhat like the Grinch who stole Monday. Ugh, so not a good look for me. When I have days like this, I often have to seek out my own source of motivation. Something that sparks a little light in me and gets me through whatever it is that I am dealing with. I have to say, I am not completely familiar with Linda Poindexter, but when I came across this quote by her I immediately was drawn in.
Days like today make me feel pretty broken and like there are pieces in my life that are falling right off of me. Career, friends, family, relationships – all of these aspects of life can sometimes start to crumble and there are even times where they start breaking off all at the same time. If I am being honest here (which I always am), I have to say that I think it’s OK to feel the cracks. It doesn’t hurt to look at them and to feel the pain that comes with them. What is more important though, is to remember that cracks don’t always mean you are completely broken. Days like today (for me) have to be dealt with and used as a learning experience. I always like to recognize that I made it through the day and that tomorrow is a fresh start. Just keep in mind that you didn’t fall apart and that you actually passed the test.
