Inspiration Monday

Welcome to Inspiration Monday!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Its a new week to make great things happen and we can choose to run this week otherwise the week is going to run us!

Today's inspirational quote is one that I come back to time and time again. Well not really come back to it, it is something that I practice. "When things get hectic, focus on being calm". It is such a good one and oh my goodness it is so true.

I can relate to this all so well. My mind is always thinking of something creative. If I dont watch it, it will start to go on over load thinking of all kinds of things. Whether its work, going back to school, what I am cooking for dinner, where I have my next meeting, how to help others, fundraisers, working out, encouraging people, cleaning, playing with daughter, reading for inspiration, pretty designs, and much much more. We all have lots going on and our minds can become cluttered with all the thoughts and our minds can become cluttered with all the actual clutter that we see on a day to day basis, if we havent had a chance to go and clean it.

One thing that works for me is to try and be still for a while. I will wake up early before anyone else in the house (normally everyday) and get a cup of hot tea or coffee and sit on the sofa. I will cut a lamp or 2 on and open my patio door and listen to the peacefulness of a new morning. I will also start to read my daily devotions and just soak in the quietness for about a good 20 - 30 minutes or so. It works wonders. Focusing on being calm instead of just continuing the day with the craziness from yesterday.

Another thing that I try to do is make sure when I go to bed at night that my living areas and kitchen are extremely tidy and clean. It creates so much peace when you wake up in the morning! It starts your day calmly and gives you a head start on a great day. Even if I may stomp my feet at night to go make sure all that is done, it has become a staple for me now because I know what kind of mornings I love!

Yoga is great too to just focus on being calm :-)

Hope you make this week a great and calm week!

{New Monday Theme} Inspiration Monday

I started thinking over the weekend about how I love to inspire people and just create positive vibes all around me. I also like sharing little inspiration images that I create on my facebook page in hopes to at least inspire someone that maybe having a down day. So I came up with doing Inspiration Monday. Every Monday, I will share some inspiration with you!

There are so many people that just hate Mondays. I personally love them because I look at it as it being a new day to a new week to try again to get things done or to keep pressing forward and work for new things. Its a new start and I am choosing to embrace it.

Here is the inspiration for today:

There are many people that just float through life wishing away the days. As soon as one day comes in they are ready for it to be night time so that day can be over. That is not a way for us to live. We should be passionate about life and find our true passion. Do what we absolutely love doing. Even when that seems impossible, start small. One step at a time and always dream big. Dont have a mindset for little dreams. Have a mind set for big dreams.

Dont for once let that negative thinking settle in and think that you will never get there or be afraid to dream. Dont let one little disappointment determine how you live the rest of your life! You were made to accomplish great things - not the same things as your neighbor - but great things in your own way.

I hope you have a great Monday and an AMAZING week!
