Motivational Monday #3



Aloha Sprinklerinos,

According to scientists (or maybe just general 'they say' ness), today is the most depressing Monday of the year on account of it being so long since payday and a while til the next, the gloomy weather and the lack of excitement (oh how we miss you Christmas). If you are feeling blue, you've come to the right place because today is Motivational Monday where we come together as a happy, supportive, caring community and there is always a friend for you in the comments section. 

Motivational_Monday

I don't know about you but I often find myself worrying in circles and revving myself up into quite the tizzy about things I can't control or problems that aren't really mine. This week I'm going to make a concerted effort to let go of them.

This week I am going to love myself the most and not beat myself up over all the little things I find myself fixated on. So I cleared my office but left a load (and I mean loads!) of junk on the sofa, oh well. So I slipped up on my healthy eating plan and ate four (oops) weight watcher bars yesterday, oh well. So I didn't plan out all my blog posts last week, never mind. What I have done is love my family, read to my Daughter, laugh with my Husband, looked after my body with a few good walks and no takeouts, shared with a neighbour. 

What I'm trying to point out is that when you focus on all the times you've done wrong, messed up or missed out, you can't fully see all the things you have excelled at, been brilliant in or cared about. We are often our own worst enemies and this week for Motivational Monday I would like you, every day, to find something good that you have done and give yourself a pat on the back. You deserve it. It can be really big or really small or somewhere in between, but give yourself some lovin'. 

Homework (ie. comment below with haha)- Are you going to try and be kinder to yourself? What great things did you do over the weekend that you deserve a personal clap for? Also, how did you get on last week? Did you focus on any existing goals and did you have a positive outcome? It's good to reassess as well as look forward. 


Toodlepip!

  3. your homework is difficult! haha. Let's see.. I've slacked majorly on my blog recently, but I've worked hard and put together a few posts this weekend. I think I deserve a pat on the back for being productive. You make such a great point with this post and I'll definitely give it thought throughout the week (:

  7. So true. It's often, also, when times are tough on those around me that I forget what's good about myself and my own life. So what I didn't post on my blog for a week? I am trying to make sure to fit in my times of reflection and contributing and (sometimes!) pampering, so that I can be my strongest to help others be stronger. And you, Louise, are such an everyday inspiration! Super pleased you're enjoying cleansing your insides, haha! x

  8. I love this advice. I am making this my year of change, so I need to get on it!

  9. I guess it all boils down to being positive and finding a silver lining in every situation even (or especially) when you mess up.

  10. thank you for this post! I always focus on the bad things and I hate myself all the time buh. It's hard to think of something you did good every day, but I'm going to try it :) I decided that I'm only going to drink water this week and go to the gym 3 times. When you said you was less tired since you were healthier, I said to myself I also have to be healthier because I'm not happy with my body, I'm kind of fat, and I am always tired. Thankyou for all your motivational words! I really hope I can meet you one day, you're a lovely person <3

  11. This is exactly what I needed. I'm feeling kind of blue today, stressing about school deadlines and myself. But this weekend I baked something for my parents, I did a lot of homework and I put time aside to just relax :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is such a great post. I agree that more often than not, we are way too hard on ourselves and fixate on the bad instead of the good. This week I have let my room become a mess, but I have also laughed with friends, worked to the best of my ability and planned some blog posts.
    Thank-you Louise xx

  14. I love this series Louise! I'm always in need of a little kick in the butt so I don't spend my whole day on the couch cradling a packet of Doritos & berating myself for not writing enough. Today I held my breath & took a quiz at an old manuscript I hadn't looked at in six months (!) then emailed it over to my sister and her fiancée so they both could read it. No one's read the finished draft yet! It also made me think 'hey, I did great things with this manuscript before it was even finished' (got a draft into the hands of a literary agent) 'so maybe I should give myself a little more credit' XO!

  15. Love your Motivational Monday posts :) I've worked really hard on my blog and YouTube lately, and have gone from 29 followers on Bloglivin to over 150 in less than two weeks, I'm so proud! I also took yesterday to just chill, catch up on videos and plan a few posts, I really needed the "me" time. Today it's back to university essay reading and actually having to get out of bed!

  18. Such a lovely motivational post and the positive things you've done are so worth focusing on, they're the important things in life :)!

  24. I have just discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago and I'm really glad I did. I totally agree with this post! We need to remember that nobody's perfect and there's no point beating yourself up about the small things all of the time - life is way too short. I went to the gym for the first time yesterday, not to lose weight but to tone up and I am so glad I did because it made me feel so good about myself! Good luck with your new health regime and hope you have a lovely week! :) xx

  25. I constantly worry and know I shouldn't but I am so critical on myself at times that, this can be difficult! Great advice louise! X.

  27. This is something I've been trying to do more and more of in the past six months. The more positive I try to be the more naturally positive I've become. It's astounding! I am also on a journey to become healthier and in the past six months have lost four stone. Last week I lost 4lb. Yay me!!! I also passed on some too small toddler clothes to a friend and arranged for my mum to visit for her 60th birthday in Feb. Yeah I'm rulin'!!

  28. I love these post! This week my goal is to stay positive for my upcoming exam and not be positive about the revision I am doing! I am also going to try and visit the gym or go on a cycle ride!!

I've been working on being less of a control freak (planning but still let space for the unexpected and admit that I can't plan EVERYTHING).

    I love your motivational Mondays Louise, I really do!

  34. This is such amazing advice. To be honest I am guilty of fixating myself on everything bad and problems instead of just simply appreciate everything good. I think I am going to that more and focus on the good.

  35. I was actually feeling quite proud of myself this morning, because on the weekend I finally got over my fear of writing an OOTD post, I was so self-conscious of myself! But I finally did it and it went on my blog today, and it is a great feeling to know that I am capable to post them, and stop second-guessing myself! :)

  45. I got a new blog layout over the weekend! Even though I don't REALLY have the money for it right now, it's been something I really really had wanted and was totally worth the $50 :) College is draining on your wallet when $50 is a treat....I feel like all these bloggers have so much money to spend on $200 dresses for one evening and I'm just wondering if I can spend $5 on a new lipstick...your motivational monday posts really keep me positive when it's easy to get bogged down with the stresses of life. Thanks Louise :)

  46. I have really loved reading your motivational mondays Louise. It definitely helps me start the week right, and I have something to remember when I'm feeling down. I agree that life is too short to be at war with oneself, and even if you slip up on a few goals, there is always tomorrow to start on the right track again.

  48. We all outweigh ourselves with the negative thoughts instead of the positive ones no matter what. An idea I'd like to suggest is to write something that you did which made you feel good that day and keep it locked in a diary, saved into memos list on your phone or even stick post it notes around your bedroom!

    Thank you for reminding many readers Louise to look at the good not bad, have a nice day! :)

  49. i try to be kind to myself and give myself a bit of 'me' time ( as cliché as that is ) at the end of everyday where i write in my diary and kind of reflect on my day. i got a job over the weekend, well a volunteering position that i'm stoked about eeep. keep going lou you can do it. x

  50. Your a such a motivation! I need to work on thinking more positively, as I can get quite down, especially when I head back to school and get bogged down with schoolwork. I will work hard to look at the positive and joys in life. Thanks for being such a great inspiration Louise :)

  52. I really enjoy your Motivational Mondays posts - always good to have a little pick-me-up on hand on your lovely page before I feel too gloomy about the week ahead!

    I always try to validate the bad with the good - rubbish things happen, stressful things happen, but there's always something lovely to cling onto, even if it is just the fact that the sun was out today after a week (here in Durham, at any rate!) of rain. When it comes to studying, I can absolutely kick myself if I accidentally slip off my very strict regime, but I try to remember that if I stop working earlier in the evening than I wanted to, it's because I'm tired and my body's screaming at me to get some sleep!

    Please keep going with your posts - they are so wonderful. :)

    I always try to see the best in every day, because I hate to think when I'm old I'll be thinking something like this: what a rubbish day or even worse, not remembering the day at all!

  69. I literally just realized today that when I see women on the street who are around my size I don't think "Oooh doesn't she look fat?", I just think they look like average, normal sized women. So why when I look at myself in the mirror do I think "Ugh why am I still so fat?" Sometimes I get so focused on that last 15-20 lbs that I want to lose that I forget how much I've already achieved. So my new goal for the year along with continuing to get healthier is to stop being so hard on myself, and to remember that everyone is their own worst critic.

  72. i think so many of us worry too much about little things. everyone is so worried about numbers. like how long or short of a time period we have to do something, calories in and out, amount of sleep, how long to exercise.. everyone needs to just stop worrying about numbers!! life isnt about worrying about the future or past. its about right now. and right now. we're called Human Beings for a reason. to BE in the moment. i think everyone should just relax and think about the things that truly matter, like being able to live on planet earth! and being able to take a walk or job around a beautiful neighborhood. <3 or to eat a little chocolate with your family late at night haha! my favorite! :)

  77. Well, I managed to finish my lab work on time for the week and got my first two weeks of readings done in one of my classes. As I have a tendency to leave ALL my readings until midterms or finals, I'm quite proud of that second one. I've also got to give myself a pat on the back for not crying for days on end in middle of class after finding out my best friend's mum died after a long battle with a terminal disease. All in all a pretty good start.

  79. Today hasn't been the best of days because it got off to a bad start, but I've tried to make it the best I possibly could after that. I had an argument with my mum this morning but thankfully now we've both apologised. Tomorrow will hopefully be better :)
    This week I intend to actually do all my homework on time, and not let Tumblr, Instagram or YouTube get in the way! I'm always so disorganised!
    Thank you for the motivation Louise, you're such an inspiration.

  80. Lovely as always, Louise! Tomorrow I'm finally going to apply for my drivers permit, so that's something thats finally getting done! Along with that, I've been reading this weekend! I find that the computer (and school!) tends to make me not read as much as I used to, or as I like. So finding a book I'm really in to and reading was a great way for me to pass the time this weekend.

I am so nervous for them, and have not been encouraging myself in the slightest, but have been beating myself down about how hard the tests will be. I'm going to try and really encourage myself to do well because I know that it will help! Thank you so much for this post!

  93. Hi Louise,
    This weekend I had myself a little disappointed because I had 4 days to study for my exam but only started studying 2 days in advance. I was a bit sad because I could have done more, I had the time, but didn't use it. In the end, my exam went quite well, so there's no reason to be mad at myself!
    This is just one example of the many. Most of the time I'm too hard on myself. This post really motivates me to love myself more for who I am and for what I did or didn't do.
    Thank you so much, Louise!

  94. This post is so true. When you think that the world is out to get you or that your life is rubbish you will often be proved right. But if you go out there with a positive mind set you eventually start to see the good things more than the bad and it makes the world of difference. xx

  103. This is my favourite MM post so far :) I've been trying to make an effort this year to think of positive things from my day, as I always used to focus on the negative! This weekend I managed to get a lot of blog posts & photos organised which I'm really pleased with xx

  104. This has definitely made me feel more positive :) I've just had a long weekend off work with my fiance and was starting to feel stressed out about being lazy and not making the effort to do other things like housework, blogging, organising my office etc.. But now I think I definitely deserved to have a long weekend off after working so hard at my job 5 days a week! We all deserve a guilt free break now and again right?! Much more motivated to get back to work tomorrow, but will still make time to enjoy my evenings at home without feeling guilty about the little things (and probably squeeze in that housework too!) ;)

  105. This is exactly the thing that I always do. I worry way too mch and care too much about things that are not going as great as I wish (especially my grades right now), but I am promising to myself right now that I will be proud of myself by the end of the week, no matter if I get a C in History instead of a B-.
    Thank you, Louise. I really needed a motivation like this.
