Motivational Monday || Happy


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Merry Monday to you. It's been a big few weeks round here with projects being finalised, birthdays and trips to London, but I thought I would get back to normality with a Motivational Monday. 


I have spent a big portion of this last year regularly reminding myself of all the things I'm happy about and finding that it really truly does boost the spirits. 

This Monday I am happy for -

How docile my kitties are. Not once have they bitten or scratched us. 
The work I have been getting done lately and how good I feel for it.
Darcy's excellent behaviour. She is such a sweet girl. 
How wonderful the Sprinklerino community have been this past few weeks.
Chocolate Easter Eggs- need I say more??
Finding makeup you forgot you had. 
Being sucked into new Netflix series. (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt!)
Handbags that never get scuffed.
Spring fashion. Floral, floral, floral!
Waking up early and feeling smug that you can get ahead. 
Long bubble baths with Lush products. 
Green thai curry with brown rice from Pod. 
Phone calls with my girl friends. 
Cocktails with lychee flavours in them. MmmmMmm. 
Discovering new blogs that you love and back reading every post. 
Going outside and feeling the sunshine on your skin. 

If you have the Monday grumps, take a moment to write a list of all the things that make you happy at the moment. I guarantee it will lift your mood and give you that extra pep in your step to get you through the day!!

Toodlepip!!

  27. These posts are always great. I too have been sucked into a netflix series ,once upon a time (why I haven't watched it before I don't know). I also agree with you on the feeling of waking up early - it always makes me feel more productive as the day hasn't felt wasted.

  42. Hi guys, I’d like to ask you all to take part in my research that I’m doing for my Master’s thesis. It’s about what influences your relationship to your favorite YouTubers and it shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes – there are only 7 questions (+ 2 optional).
    This is the link to the research form: http://goo.gl/forms/5OfkCO19hr but if you like, I can send you the questions via message
    YOUR HELP WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED
    Thank You

  56. Nice list, I really agree with Netflix binges. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt" I watched in two days. The show is so silly. However, that theme song is catchy, and once it's in your head, it doesn't go away! Crackers, now it's stuck in my head again!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I've really enjoyed the newfound sun this week! Also, the arrival of spring is what makes me happiest(: Spring time is my favourite season ever.

  59. Lovely idea Louise, lists like these are so nice to remind you of all the good things in life! What I'm grateful for this tuesday: a hot cup of tea, hudson taylor (both looks and sound, mmm), friends that will take you to an island for a running competition, the soreness in my legs after that competition, the sun on my face :).

    Have a fabulous week, louise! xxxxxxxx

  67. What makes me happy today:
    1) I bought new shoes for spring/summer
    2) One of my favorite artist's new album came out and I'm in love with the songs
    3) I think that my uni coursework is going well
    4) I stumbled over my own feet this morning when I opened the door (hello, clumsiness) and fell right out of the door. My mum witnessed that glorious moment as well as some people walking right past and we all laughed for ages. I didn't hurt myself and it was a nice (but yes, embarrassing) moment to share.

  69. Have been reading your blog for years, am always so inspired by how positive you are.

    I currently am awaiting a heart operation, but somehow this has made me appreciate the little things more. I'll be sure to use your 'list your happiness tips' on a down day.

    Thanks Louise!

  70. I love you Louise! Between you and Zoe I started a blog (http://alwayssomethingawkward.blogspot.com/) I know you love my shameless plug. It's pretty crap but that's alright. It's my crap.

    You really are an inspirational bag of fun. I bought a flower headband because of you. While no one seems to appreciate it I consider it my Sprinkle of Glitter. HA.

    Keep being yourself as it is one of my most favorite people to be.
