Motivational Monday || Adventure


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Merry Monday to you. A new week, a new month, a new year- a triple whammy today. Much excite!


Today had no choice other than to be about new starts. 

I am always optimistic at the start of the year. I feel like the air changes and there is a very tangible sense of change for the better. People cast away the sorrows or hardships of the past 12 months and try again. For me, it's a little bit magical. 

I spoke last week about all of my resolutions and how excited I am but I would like this week for you to take a moment to think about what you want out of this year. You don't need to write it down or share it with anyone, just take a couple of minutes out of your day to focus on exactly what you want. 

Is it to spend more quality time with people? Gain qualifications? Save up? Travel somewhere? Add to your family? Whatever it is, think about it, visualise and commit to yourself that you are going to work towards it. If you want it hard enough, you'll find a way to make it happen.

I have great faith it in you and so do all your Sprinklerino family. If you'd like to share, feel free in the comments. Also, don't forget to support each other in the comments too. It can really make all the difference to someone's day.

  2. Lovely post Louise!! When I was meant to be tidying today I spent a great deal of my time actually thinking about what I want to get out of 2015, great minds think alike haha ;) I don't want to say it was an eye opener but actually sitting there and thinking solely on what I want 2015 to be like was awesome for me. I was able to put a lot of stuff in perspective and realise what my priorities are :) much love Em xx

    1. I totally agree with you!!! I feel like with school it can be so easy to stop creating, but I need to set some time aside to feed my creative little monster inside, haha.

  5. My only resolution this year is to make 2015 the best year it can be :)

  6. My resolution this year is to take every day as it comes and to try and focus on that day, and be happy about the small things and what's happening in the moment. I feel like I spend to much of my time worrying about the past and mainly just what's going to happen in the future, which ends up taking away from the fully enjoying what I'm doing at the time :)

  15. This is the first year I've really thought about making any resolutions, but it's definitely a good year to start as I want to work to the best of my ability and gain the qualifications I need by continually setting achievable goals for myself, which I have learnt from you, lovely post Louise and good luck for 2015!x

  17. I kinda needed this today! I was made redundant at the end of December and searching for jobs is draining me at the moment. Have been trying to be optimistic for the start of the year but woke up today just feeling a little down. This post reminded me that everything is OK and made me pick myself back up again and continue with the positive thinking, so thank you so much for that! :) xx

  18. Your motivational mondays really do motivate me!
    This year I want to start being the best version of myself, which means eating healthy, using my time better, getting done more of my goals and doing more creative projects. And by the end of the year I want to have figured out what I want to do with my life as I graduated from school last year.
    Everyones resolutions sound great and I think we all can achieve them!

  21. Lovely post as always! After a pretty bad 2014 I decided it was time to stop moaning and actually make some changes so I booked a one way flight to Sydney for the end of January and could not be more excited for what 2015 will bring! I wish you all the best for 2015 and hope it's everything you'd like it to be!

  22. i want to take time for myself to figure out what i want, in life and in relationships and what i want from myself. and i'm gonna stop saying all those "i'm not creative enough" "i can't do this" "i suck at that", and try to get rid of all negative thoughts in general.

  23. I look forward to these posts every week! :)
    I plan to do more of what I enjoy and not be so hard on myself!

  28. I think to this year to put it into a quote I saw I am going to 'stop burning myself, to make others warmer.'
    Still up to the task of making others happy just not at the expense of my own. Also wish to get physically healthier and carry on with my Channel no matter what obstacle appears :) Thanks for the motivation :)

  32. I haven't ever really made new years resolutions but this year I decided I wanted a change. I bought a journal and I am calling it the positivity journal and I can only write positive things in it. I have always been a pretty negative person but I don't want to be like that anymore!

    I want to work on my fitness goals, I want to transform my body and inspire others. I want to write more, laugh more and travel more. The positive vibes I get help me not only believe but know I'll accomplish my goals no matter what~

  74. I think I jumped the gun on this one. I had a volunteer opportunity fall into my lap, one that I feel like I've been training for since I was eleven, and this year I am learning to listen to the universe when it says "Go." So I said yes, and I'm still feeling that tickle of oh-my-gosh-this-is-happening. :)

  75. Seriously thinking about my resolutions this year, but I think my main one is continue blogging no matter what. It's always something I've loved doing but have stopped numerous times because I was afraid of what others thought but not anymore so here's hoping!

  80. This year is basically the year I need to decide what to do with my life. I seem to be at a crossroads, not knowing whether to turn left or right.

    I always feel so insignificant when I am with my friends, being quite short and un-noticeable. I have so many things I want to say but I either don't get the chance, or chicken out at the last minute.
    I always find that going on the internet really helps me get my head together. And also reading books. I really like to do this but it doesn't really help my social life. I love to read John Green books especially when having a hard time. I always find that they help me to realise that I don't have it as bad as I could. I just finished The Perks of Being A Wallflower and I could relate to it so much.

    I also find that people expect to much of me. My aims get put up so high that when I don't do well but feel proud of myself, people focus more on the fact that I don't do well. Once I got 18/56 on a maths test. First maths test of the year and I had reached my target for the end of the year. But instead of focusing on that, they focused on the mark that I got. I was proud of myself. But everyone brought me down.

    This year I plan on focusing on what is important. I need to work out what it is I want to do and make sure I do it. Instead of following the crowd. I also need to make sure I do speak out. I want to ignore what everyone says about what I achieve and focus on the fact that I'm proud of what I did. Easier said than done.

    I hope you have a great year Louise. And that all your friends do to.

  84. I have so much going on this year already, I know that setting goals will probably overwhelm me but they also help me feel organized so it's hard.
    I know I am taking my SAT and ACT so getting those over with is one of my goals, as well as getting a part time job and graduating high school. Oof.

  88. Happy New Year - and here's to a great 2015!

    I have a bunch of little goals (read more for fun, drink more water) but I would say that my big, overarching resolution is the same one I set every year: Build deeper, stronger relationships.

  89. My ultimate goal for 2015 is to make happiness a mindset, not an emotion. If happiness is an emotion it only lasts for so long, making it fleeting and something that one might search for in all of the wrong places. Making happiness a mindset would bring on genuine happiness that one wouldn't have to search for. :)
