Buon lunedì femmine (Hint: that one is definitely worth translating)! Welcome to the very first Motivational Monday of 2014! Last week we put our focus on new beginnings. This week we are going to use that brand new beginning to find a better outlook.
When I think back to last year, I am downright embarrassed to admit how much time I spent wishing things were different than they were at that moment. Looking back, there was all of this time spent focused on the negative of situations and how unhappy I was with certain things. In a sea of all these worrisome moments, where was all the fun I had? The positive thing (yes, there is one) is that I can now see how wasteful it was having that kind of mindset. Coming into 2014 with a plate full of friends, family, opportunity, and even a little unknown; I am ready to start looking at things differently.
Let’s be real here (you know I always am); life is never going to be full of strictly wonderful happy moments. Instead there are going to be some downright dirty moments that will piss you off and gross you out. That my friends, is the point. Those really disgusting moments in life make us who we are just as much as the good ones do. The thing that matters most is how we deal with these moments and how we allow these times to mold us as people. Not allowing one bad experience or a really horrible day turn your whole outlook around is vital. In the words of some ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star somewhere, you gotta keep it moving. You have to know that things will work themselves out and you have to believe that something great is on it’s way.
So, with this being said, can we all just grab our previously used champagne glasses out and make a toast? Here’s to all of the times we will pick ourselves up off of the ground this year and to the expectation of the wonderful things to come.Pin It
