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.

Silly Saturday #3

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday, here where I’m from it rained most of the day.

Here are my favourite meme’s for the week. My fellow bookworms will definitely enjoy these.

1000000000000% agree with this. No one needs that kind of negativity in their life.
Just one book almost never happens.

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.

TV Thursday #2 — Bridge to Terabithia Movie Review

MOVIE REVIEW ~ BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA

Release Date: February 15th 2007.
Duration: 1hr 36mins.
Genre: Fantasy Drama.
Rated: PG.

Bridge to Terabithia is a movie I have watched at the very least ten times. I unfortunately never had the chance to read the book, so I am unable to compare how similar or different they are from one another (it is on my to read list), the last time I seen this film was a few months ago when I was looking for a film that gave me some sort of comfort, and I remember exactly why this film gives me that sense of comfort and happiness. I love the idea of having a place to escape to from reality, between being bullied and having that horrible feeling that you don’t belong due to not having many friends, a great escape is exactly what is needed when reality gets crappy. Which that is exactly what this film had, that realism of young children in school and what they go through emotionally and physically, and how they made themselves feel happier and more themselves.

The connection between Jess Aarons (Josh Hutcherson) and Leslie Burke (Anna Sophia Robb) I found were the perfect duo for this cute family film. At first Jess thought that Leslie was possibly a little crazy, she was seeing and hearing things that he just was not quite understanding. Eventually he got into the idea of the Fantasy world and they became best of friends, they met up nearly every day after school just to go to Terabithia. The one day Jess was unable to meet up with Leslie was the day he went on a trip with his teacher Ms. Edmunds (Zooey Deschanel). When Jess got home, he found out about a tragic incident that had happened to his best friend Leslie (This is as far as I will go with the depth of the movie as I don’t want to spoil the movie, in case anyone has interests in watching it).

I can say there is a particular part in this movie that I always end up crying my eyes out, and it never fails to get to me. I know just when it is about to happen, and the water works just automatically take control over me.

Although I do highly recommend this movie for an evening at home with the family, I do not recommend to little kids. Between the giants and some parts of the movie being a little on the dark side it can either scare them or they might not understand everything that is going on in the film. I would probably suggest 10-11+ for the age group.

Leslie Burke is my favourite character, and my favourite quote from her is “Just close your eyes, but keep your mind wide open”.

Although the story itself was amazing, I kind of wish that things were a bit different for the characters, maybe it would’ve left an open opportunity for a second film. Would’ve loved to see what Leslie and Jess would’ve been like a bit older.

My ratings: *****

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.
