Merry Monday! This could be the start of the best week of your life.
I have made the desicion that there will only be 25 Motivational Mondays in 2013 and I will bring back a new series in 2014. I think to do anymore might be too much and by 2014 I will have learnt a few more life lessons to share and reflect on. I just thought I would tell you in the spirit of transparency and so that you don't rock up in a few weeks wondering what's going on!
This week's quote from Pinterest is a beauty. Beautiful sentiments as well as beautiful artwork.
The idea is optimism. I think this is pretty self explanatory but it is about keeping a positive outlook, for the past, present and future.
Looking to the future can be a pretty daunting excersise, especially if your past has left a lot to be desired. It can be easy to feel like history will repeat itself or things won't get better, but the one of the keys to living a happy life is having a positive frame of mind. This means not fretting that the worst is to come, not over thinking things, not constantly worrying that life is going to be rubbish.
If for example your friend asks you to a party that you think is going to be boring or full of people you don't like, turn it around. Envisage it being really worthwhile quality time with her or imagine meeting someone really interesting/funny/handsome (ooer). When you approach a situation with a postive outlook, you come across better to other people, make great lasting impressions and operate at your best.
Next time you start to feel negative thoughts about something in the future popping into your head, note them and see if you can turn it around in some way. If you train your mind to do this every time, it will eventually become second nature and I promise you life will feel a lot brighter.
What are you looking happily forward to this week? Let's be postitive in the comments.
