For this week's Monday Motivation, I wanted to let you all know that you're setting an example for everyone around you. You're a walking billboard. Are you going to advertise positivity? Or are you going to exude bitterness, anger, impatience, and frustration today?
This Monday morning I encourage you to choose (yes CHOOSE) positivity and strength. I know mornings are hard. I have a toddler and a 5 month old. Most days I want to hide under my covers when I hear them calling for me. I'm tired. I'm exhausted really. I wonder how will I'll make it through this day. Each and every day I have to choose strength, happiness, and positivity. For me, my daughters (and my husband when he's home) are my motivation. They live with me and are affected by my mood every single moment of the day it seems! I have to be strong to inspire THEM to be strong. Let's face it, parents - when we baby our kids and coddle them, when we never ever ever let anything bad happen to them, and when we shelter their feelings they never have the opportunity to learn to be strong. TEACH your children how to cope with difficulties instead of running from them.
I realize not everyone reading this has children so, in your case, you're probably inspiring coworkers, friends, relatives...etc. Be a great billboard for positivity! I don't allow negative things or people into my life. I've had to (awkwardly sometimes) cut people out of my life who have torn me down and made me feel negative just because of their own rut of negativity. And I think I used to be that persone too! But I forced myself to change. No, I'm not perfect, as you'll see me say many times on this blog over the years. But, I try. You should too!
So choose to be STRONG because you never know who is watching, who is learning from you, or who you are being an example to.
Oh! And do something nice for someone today! HURRY! Time's ticking!
