Motivational Monday #19

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

A new week, a new start and new chance. 

Motivational Monday | Sprinkle of Glitter

I don't know about you but I'm a thinker. My mind is constantly running over ideas and hopes and worries and memories. I over think perhaps. I also dream big. I spend a looooottttta lotta time dreaming of things I want to do.

I want to paint my garage, I want to grow this blog in a million ways, I want to buy new sofas, I want to teach Darcy letters, I want to have date night with Matt, I want to make gifts for my friends, I want to do projects with my sister. I dream up all these things and take an absolute age actually bloody doing them!!

My goal this week is to DO more things and THINK about less!

I think that by doing the things we think about we will reach a level of satisfaction and feel more motivated to do more. That to me is happiness and that's what Motivational Mondays are all about.

So, what are you going to do more of and think less of this week? I love reading your comments on Mondays. 



Toodlepip!

  6. I love your motivational mondays, I've said it so many times, but it's true! This quote is 100% dedicated to me hahaha I overthink everything and end up doing nothing in the end.

  7. This post could not have come at a more perfect time. Thank you so much Louise! This is just what I needed to hear.

    Something that I'm going to do more of and think less of is blogging! I always worry about how EVERYONE is going to perceive the smallest details, but from now on I'm going to try to just write whatever feels right instead of what I think everyone wants to read.

  12. Thanks for this motivation/inspiration!

    Ahh there are loads and loads of things I hope to accomplish and not just think about wanting to accomplish lol. One of which I will try to focus extra on this week will be part time job hunting! :)

  13. I love your Motivational Mondays, Louise. I'm quite guilty of this but I've dedicated this summer to making some of these hopes into realities or at least stepping stones to making them happen.

  15. This is perfect for me! Thank you for posting this Louise. I always think way too much, to the extent of putting myself in kind of a black hole, where I can't get out. This is very motivating for me! Thank you so much for being you and for being awesome! ^_^ xxx

  16. I'm so lame! I mean, I'm lacking of this. I tend to think more than doing it. Thank you for this motivational quote Ms. Louise! I need to keep moving and doing more! :)

  17. Omg i'm totally an overthinker - i need to add this on my blog, oh i definately have to go and buy that etc... I promise, i'll try to think less this week and hopefully in the future too :) xx

  18. I love this quote! I think a lot of us will over think instead of just doing stuff. I know I do, I've started randomly agreeing to go on little adventures & I really enjoy myself! I usually over think & just don't bother. Over the past couple of days I've been thinking I need to start making birthday cards for upcoming birthdays. So today I'm going to get creating some :)
    Thanks for this post Louise,really makes you stop & think. :)

  21. I'm going to stop thinking so much about the school work I'm worrying about, as I know I'll get it all done. I'll also start thinking more about what I want after my education and about watching my favourite show a bit more!

  22. I've been putting off university research and planning for ages now; I definitely think this week ill think about doing it less and get more of it done so that in prepared and a lot less worried about it all!

    I'm feeling really motivated now after reading this; sums my lack of motivation for doing things up!
    Have a lovely week Louise!

  30. Yu've just hit the nail on the head. I DO think too much and waste time not actually DOING things.
    ecause of your inspirational post, This week I solemy swer that I'm going to have more fun experimenting with my sewing machine and less time worrying what I'll do with the final outcome!

    I'll also get out on my bike and thikn about where I'm headed once the wind is rushing through my hair.

  31. ..... and I may also concentrate more on my spelling/typing skills too ;p x

  32. This totally applies to me today! I am obsessed with making lists of all the things I want to do. Planing everything out in great detail this however stops me enjoying what I do and I should just throw away the lists and get on with it! Thank for the motivation Louise! I love Mondays now because it sets my attitude for the rest of the week.

  34. I could've written this myself! I think a lot of women will relate to this post. I definitely over-think things. I hardly ever slept until baby number 2 came along. Now I nod off as soon as my head hits the pillow as I'm so tired ;)

    LOL

  36. I also spend way too much time thinking and dreaming. Time to actually do stuff now haha

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really do love this series! I could spend hours just sitting there thinking about the things I want to do rather than doing them. I can plan and plan yet when it comes too actually doing it I seriously lack motivation.

  38. This sounds so like me. I lie awake almost every night thinking. I think it's the time I come up with my best ideas. Problem is, I always forget them in the morning. I've started to write them down now!

  45. This is something I seriously need to work on. I have SO many lists of things I want to do...and I never DO any of them! *Sigh* hopefully one day I can do more!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I spend forever writing lists of what I need to do to progress that day/week/month/year, and far less time actually putting those things into action. My goal this week is to write sensible lists, and actually complete them.

    I love your motivational Mondays.

  58. Wow, I've loved every single one of your 'Motivational Monday' posts! They're so lovely to read and really put life into perspective. I'm sure all your readers would agree that you blog is so so pretty and I love the layout! One day I hope that my blog is as good as yours, however i'm only just starting out! :-) I really do love to write and share my ideas and photos with others who enjoy the same thing as I'm sure most blog owners do! I hope you've had or will have a lovely day (depending on when you read this) and it would be lovely if you could follow my blog as I currently have a grand total of 0 followers! xx

  62. This week I plan on doing revision for my further maths and statistics exams, I also plan to start getting things ready for my high school prom on friday!
    I adore your 'Motivational Monday' series and it really is nice to see quotes and things to kick off your day on Monday when all you really want to do is grumble!

  64. This is so true. I think I become so overwhelmed by all the things I want to do that I don't end up doing any! I reckon the key is to break them into smaller, more achievable goals which don't seem so big... Thanks for these posts Louise, lovely way to start the week! x

    ReplyDelete
  65. I totally agree with this. The only problem is that as soon as I stop "doing" I go right back to thinking. I sometimes wish I could just learn how to chill out and do neither!!
    Love you Louise, favourite blogger I've found.

  75. This happened last week, but I felt like writing it anyway. I have the best friends in the world and they've bought the cutest gifts for me on special occasions. I haven't been just half as good at spoiling. I would love to give them some great gifts, but I'm really bad at actually doing it, and it took me a half year to get my lazy ass to the shopping center - and now four beautyful gift rest on my desk. It took me a meticolous long time but now it's done - I just have to do the cards soon...
