Motivational Monday #5

Hello WordPress Fam! Sorry for disappearing the last two weeks, work got hectic and then I just barely had time to do much of anything. Also had my vacation last week which I had full intentions of catching up because a week of not blogging.. but then… dealing with something completely new right now and can’t quite say anything, but it changes A LOT of things.

Which brings me to todays motivational post:

Truth right there. If you sit around expecting things to change, they wont change. YOU need to be the change you want. And it is better not to wait for the last minute possible, because life is far too short or things can unexpectedly change any second and then your goals and everything else would be from you not getting anything accomplished to moving up all your timelines.

Fashion Friday #4 Black Leggings SUMMER edition!

We have come a long way when it comes to leggings. Especially in 2020-2021 leggings came back in style, when a lot of people have become more dependent on comfort clothes.

Not sure about you, but, for me… I swear I depended on my leggings. From going to the office to going out and even chilling at home. I went from not owning any, to owning probably over thirty pairs.

I have lots of different patterns, solid colours and even different lengths (She’s Got Leggz.. which I am a consultant for has legging, capris and shorts length.

My ultimate favourite colour is our Black Onyx. The ones in this picture is not from She’z Got Leggz, they are actually just random photos from Google images, but wanted to show you how versatile black leggings really are.

Would love to do this! But yet to find boots that’ll fit me.
Goals.
I do something pretty similar to this. It’s great for the cold Summer nights.
I need shoes similar to this, and then I’ll be ready to rock this style.
I dress this way quite often.
I have actually done this before, I even own a tee dress similar to this.
This one here is my least favourite. Honestly not a fan of that vest.

How do you wear your leggings? What is your usual to go to style? Which style is your goal to try? Comment below with answers.

Motivational Monday #4

I don’t know who else needs to read this quote…

But I know it’s definitely something I need to work on.

Usually I’m a night owl, I can probably stay up till 2:30-3am catching up on things. But then I NEVER get enough sleep, and it just becomes one big vicious cycle.

I’ve been trying to motivate myself to go to sleep earlier, and wake up earlier.. this way I can be more productive and feel more energized in the morning. It’s a big work in progress and there is way too much room for improvements. But, I will get there, and I know you will too.

Self Care Sunday #3

We need to constantly remind ourselves that we need to take care of ourselves. We are a priority and should never take ourselves for granted.

Here are my top 10 things that helps me reset and feel better.

1) Listening to music: This is even better when you can let loose and dance or sing a bit. Sing from the top of your lungs, dance like no one is watching you. Just be wild for a bit.

2) Reading a book: Just the small escape from reality helps. It stops you from thinking too much about current problems and it allows you to keep the imagination flowing.

3) Working out/walking: I’ve noticed ever since I’ve been exercising more it has made me more physically healthier and overall a little happier. Sweat it out, it gives you that sense of relief and you put all that built up negative energy into something that would overall benefit you. Even just a simple walk and surround yourself with nature.

4) Writing: In this case, blogging has made me happier. You can keep a journal and just write all your emotions out. Have a jar of all the things that made you feel accomplished throughout the year. Keep a gratitude journal. Maybe be a little more creative and write poetry or a novel.

5) Hugs: Just overall hug a friend, a family member, your spouse, a pet, a pillow. Anything. I know with COVID I’m sure we’ve all been a lot less affectionate, but we’re humans and affection is know to make people happier.

6) Cleaning/declutter: I’m actually surprised about this one. Lets face it.. who actually likes cleaning? I’m sure not many people do and its such a chore. But I don’t know about you.. but when things are organized and clean, I feel a huge sign of accomplishment and relief. Sometimes even just seeing things really disorganized is enough to make me feel stress.

7) Hobbies: For me its painting and diamond art. Sometimes I also like playing video games. We need to give us some sort of time to unwind.

8) Dates: Either it be a date with a significant other, a family member, a friend or even by yourself. Go do something you really want to do.

9) Skincare and physical health: I’m honestly terrible for not taking my supplements as often as I should; but when I do remember to take them… I feel great and energized. I also feel good about myself when I take the time to take care of my skin.. cleanse/moisturize/exfoliate/shave. Take care of your nails and give it a fresh coat of paint. Do a spa night. Eat good food. It’s all a part of making yourself feel good. Its okay to treat yourself to a greasy burger or slice of pizza… but don’t over do the bad comfort foods.. although it helps you feel mentally better (or so you think it is), it is doing more harm to your body than good.

10) Shows/movies: Honestly just sitting back and watching a movie or show you really want to is an amazing feeling too. Don’t depend the screens too often, but in moderation is good. Feel sad? Watch a comedy. Watch something that you know will make you feel happy.

Bonus: While doing 90% of the stuff above, I usually have some sort of drink in hand. Water, tea, hot chocolate, coffee or a glass of wine.

Motivational Monday #3

Words that are easier said than done.

In a world where there is so much hate.

A place where we’re all being judged and criticized for every little thing we do.

Having someone constantly breathing down our necks to tell us we’re doing things wrong and that we just don’t know how it is all done.

It starts making us feel like we’re just not good enough or makes us wonder if we’ll ever succeed in life.

That is when you need to stand tall, take a deep breath and let in those positive vibes, just to let out all that negative feeling.

Allow yourself to start with a fresh clear mind, this will help you see more clearly for a brighter future.

Motivational Monday #2

Happy Monday Fellow Readers and Bloggers. Just wanted to share some Monday inspiration to hopefully set the tone for a hopefully successful week ahead.

Lets be honest… I. HATE. MONDAYs. Why? Because my weekend never feels long enough and it is the start to a very long work week. But.. what if that is just in our heads? I mean.. Monday is just another day of the week. So what if all the Monday haters such as myself, just need something to be happy about or something more than “just another day working”.

Well… what is what I did.

This motivational quote speaks volumes to me. Today I woke up a little earlier than I normally do, and I took my first Creative Writing class. And as much as I felt miserable working… after work I did Bootcamp even though I was exhausted. So despite how work makes me feel, I am driven to have a pretty good or at least decent week.

No more just talking for me, now I need to get cracking and start making steps in the right direction and make my thoughts and hopes a reality.

Motivational Monday #1

I hope everyone had a good Monday today. I just wanted to share one of my favourite motivational quotes with you.

A very important thing to remember. We’re all human and tend to make mistakes from time to time, but we don’t need to let that define us.

We should be learning from our mistakes and the negative situations we come across. We should use these aspects of life to become a better person and to evolve from them.
