Motivation Monday {Make it Happen}

Sitting at the kitchen table, searching the internet for inspiration for a Sunday post, slightly depressed by the thought of the upcoming week.  I thought of my previous work week and how sweet it was to only work two days.  I took three days off from the 9 to 5 for my birthday and other appointments.  It was nice!  After this super long weekend, I of course don’t want to go to work in the morning, {thankful to have the full-time} but I try to think positive as to not ruin the rest of my day.  Nonetheless I still had to prepare myself for the coming week.  Feeling uninspired, I left trying to force a post out of thin air, to enjoy the rest of the weekend with my family. 

Fast forward through my Monday, it was an okay day at the office {four more days left}.  I did come across a few quotes and posts/articles that inspired me to finish this post, as it is now Motivation Monday.  I’ve always used the creative side of my brain, whether through dance, writing, etc…  It is something that always came natural, but it still requires practice and learning.   I find that being creative is the skill that I was blessed with and what I will use to fulfill my purpose in life.  Which I believe is to share my love for creativity with the world, whether through dance, event planning, writing, graphic design, etc…

Being my own boss is a great feeling,  I am passionate about what I do, therefore I pour my entire self into each project.  I am extremely motivated to run a successful business.  Through my hard-work, continued determination, patience and yearning for learning {improving and expanding my skill set), lol, my business will be successful…  But I must not only believe that statement-but live it!

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.”
– E. E. Cummings

Here is one of the articles I read… Enjoy!

New Beginnings

“… One of my favorite authors says it in this way “your job is to be the best expression of you that you can be and there’s no greater contribution you can make to this world.” POW! You have a right to every good thing this world has to offer tangible and intangible, material things and life experiences. You may be living in the shadow settling for a mediocre life but come on Ms. Fabulous…Is that how you want to live? Is that who you are? Are you okay with being average; with having your identity wrapped up in your look? You have the right to be successful, happy and fulfilled.  

If this resonates with you allow me to share HOW to get from where you are to where you want to be. Here are five Fabulous Life Makeover tips to help you begin making your life over:

Live your life by design with a clear picture of how you want it to be. You have complete authorship of your life meaning you get to write the ideal as you wish as you see it. To move from passive by-stander accepting whatever happens to you, you must be intentional and purposeful in proactively creating your life.  

Live your life by a standard based on your anchor. An anchor is your foundational beliefs, faith or spiritual practice. Follow those guidelines rather than those based on the culture or customs of your industry, profession, geographic location, associations or affiliations.

Live your life in the positive with your rose-colored glasses on and make it your business to gravitate to the positive in everything. If someone is chatty about some person, place or thing and the content of their talk is negative either highlight the positive in that specific person, place of thing or keep silent, shut your mouth and let your peace speak.

Live your life in gratitude with an expression of gratitude for every breath, step, minute, hour, day, person, place, thing, job, house/home, transportation, food and shelter, good health, experiences, opportunities, etc. and the key is to verbalize it. Speak your gratitude out loud and watch the universe give you more reasons to be grateful.   

Live your life in action with a spirit of “make it happen” take one action step every day.  How you makeover your life is movement, growth and progress from where you are to where you want to be.  That can only happen when you are consistently in action.
