Motivation Monday – Find It Within

I am often asked how I stay MOTIVATED.

The truth? I don’t. I also have to constantly look within to find the motivation. I WISH it was always omnipresent, ready to lift me up when I may be feeling weighed down or lacking…

I do usually find the motivation to do the damn things, because I know I am WORTH it, and I know that no one else can do it FOR me. I know that INTENTIONS are wonderful, but without ACTION, they get nowhere. And I know I am always better for doing the stuff I may not always wanna do – I promise you from the depths of my soul, there is a REALLY incredibly empowering feeling within RISING above your excuses and DOING IT. Powerful shit, no joke.

But you may not see the times I hit snooze.
You may not hear the pep talks I have to dole out to myself to get in gear.
You may not view the mental battle that sometimes comes from knowing you need to put in the effort, but not seeing those efforts pan out.
And you may not hear me occasionally whining that I just don’t wanna (replete with whiny toddler voice!)

I try to share the good and the bad, the ugly and the bloopers (see Saturday’s entry for proof, haha) because I am a firm believer that ALL of it is part of the journey, and my hope is that it inspires someone else to realize that things are sometimes less than pretty, the struggle is sometimes so damn real, and I hope to inspire people to rise above those struggles and DO IT ANYWAYS. Be your OWN source of motivation!

And if you need additional support and motivation, join me in my awesome Success Group 😉 – after all, that right there is a HUGE source of how I am constantly motivated!

Mindset Monday – Ride The Wave

Ever had those moments you are motivated to step into action, but not motivated to actually do said action? It’s a hard place to explain… I am so fired up, but there is some resistance there fOr sure.

I am trying to break through the blocks and figure out what the resistance is towards. I don’t love being in this state of limbo, but sometimes it’s necessary.
It’s okay to just ride those periods out while you work on pinpointing what’s holding you back. Clarity is a beautiful effin’ thing!

Never Miss A Monday!

I try to practice what I preach to the best of my ability… and that’s why I showed up this morning and got it done.

Despite the massive headache.
Despite the fact my dog was sick last night and kinda up my butt this morning.
Despite the fact I actually didn’t wanna.

But you’ve seen me say never miss a Monday, and I knew I’d feel worse if I did skip today (and I didn’t make it to day 69/80 with no skips to skip NOW), so we got it done.

Does it make me a hero? Nope. But it makes me a better ME. And that’s the goal, to better myself every day.

Your obstacles are your opportunity to { RISE ABOVE }

Motivation Monday – Amazing

 

I’m simply saying, who the hell is inspired by perfection? You? Because I am not.

I am inspired by real, raw hustle. I am inspired by those who have all the excuses in the world, yet knock em off one by one. I am inspired by those who show up, by those who know their worth, by those who embrace feelin’ good and just wanna help others feel good, too.

I am inspired by all of the people who chose to rise up and shine.

It’s so much better to show up and be imperfect yet amazing, than to sit on the sidelines waiting for perfection.

Happy Monday!

I’m here to tell you, the best way to start a Monday is a kickass workout followed by a much-needed, fit of deep-belly laughter.

Thank you, Universe, I needed that! 😊

Total Body Core crushed, followed by some much needed peace of mind 💕
