#mindsetmonday – Power of Thoughts

As I was working through some overall life and business planning this weekend, I was again reminded of the most important factor which allows for happiness in your life.

“The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life” – excerpted from FocalPoint Coaching’s Clarity worksheet.

I say – Amen. Truer words were never spoken.

How are your thoughts driving your behavior, your outlook?

Happy Monday!

#mindsetmonday – keep going

Some days are harder than others. No one said life was going to be a joyous occasion everyday.

On those days, when you don’t want to get out of bed; when you don’t think you can handle – well – anything. Just take a breath. Find your courage and just put one foot in front of the other. Just keep going.

And remember you are not alone – even if it feels that way. You are not alone. Just keep going.

#mindsetmonday – Enjoy life as it is

Remember to always stop. Step back and look around you to find something – no matter how small – to enjoy and be grateful for! Your soul will thank you.

Mine? The rare occassion where I was able to make my now teenage daughter smile, give me hug and say thank you. All while not embarrassing her (for once). Yes, it involved a birthday gift of a lifesize cutout of her favorite celebrity. But, I got the hug and smile and it was worth it!

#mindsetmonday – there is good

Amidst the chaos and tipsy turbulence world Covid19 threw us into; amidst the senseless violence and hatred that is yet again tearing its ugly head across our nation – remember – there is still good in this world. With hundreds of thousands of amazing human beings who give of themselves, who love and who provide peace, hope and stability.

There is more power in love than in fear and hate. how will you choose to be?

#mindsetmonday It’s Monday – Again!

And so, Monday, we meet again. I know, the right thing to say is something like “Ok, so Monday’s are only icky if I choose for that to be”. And even though, I know logically for that to be true. Most of the time, normal everyday humans are like – FXXX that hippy, drippy, mind crap – Monday’s are hard and Monday’s suck and shove it you happy M-F’r.

So, let’s get real. Yes, Monday’s are hard – especially after a beautiful, relaxing, sunny and warm weekend. Yes, getting the kids to wake up and go through their school assignments and providing direction kind of blows. Getting yourself ready and together and firing up that laptop to start the work-week can be a total bummer. But, you what? Suck it up, get your grown-up on and conquer the day.

Let your negativity out, let Monday suck for a bit. And then, get to work. Decide to crush the day. Be thankful you have that job. Be grateful you have a safe home and awesome kids and loved ones and friends. Focus yourself and your mind and get yourself into that positive mindset, that flow you need to harness in order to live another day, to be a productive human and ultimately, to enjoy your life. Let the negative go and settle in for another crazy week.

Enjoy!
