My motto last week was to stay positive and not let things get me down. I did really well, getting things accomplished around the house as well as getting my work outs in. I am going to try to continue the momentum this week, even with this dang sinus infection that is trying to bring me down.
So this week’s word or motto is to follow you passion, I am truly lucky that I have a few hobby’s or passions that I get to do. I do nails as I am a licensed technician and I get to do that as my passion on the side as well as I am getting back to another passion of mine, dancing. I will be going back to teaching Zumba in a couple of weeks. I am very fortunate to be able to live out my passions of being a mom, nail tech, zumba instructor all because of the amazing man I married who supports in in the things I love.
We may not all be able to do a job that we love but find something in life that you are passionate about and follow that passion. Maybe you love to paint or just going running, don’t lose your passion for it you will be happier in life keeping those passions.
So get out there this week and follow your passions.
Had a crazy week last week and felt like I was getting nothing I wanted to done. I was behind on blogging, working out, and my to do list around the house. Towards the end of the week I had enough of felling blah, so I decided it was time for a mood change.
I started prioritizing better and getting things crossed off my list, and even got a few work outs in (which of course always makes you feel better).
This week I am trying to start off the week right with a positive frame of mind and not let the week beat me down.
My goal this week is to get my work outs done and not let anything stop me from getting them done. I know I will thank myself later once I get back in a solid routine again.
I found these quotes and hope you enjoy them, maybe this will help you start your week off the right way too!
I was having a hard time picking a quote this week, but I decided since it is my birthday week and I’m dealing with getting another year older that this was a good quote.
When I look back at being young and how I imagined my life would be when I got older, it’s amazing how different you become from that person. Even my goals from being a teen to a young adult and now a mom and wife.
You definitely become more self aware and I think more confident because you understand what’s really important in life. In growing up I’ve definitely learned how important family is and having great friends. When your young its all about having friends but as you get older you realize its not about the amount of friends its the quality of the friendship.
When I was younger I swore I didn’t want kids and I wanted a career, well that’s not at all what happened. I think the teenage me would die of shock seeing how different we’ve become. I couldn’t be more satisfied with life, being a domesticated goddess and a mom.
What are your thoughts on growing up and what you have learned? I would love to hear.
This is a few days late but better late than never. I love this quote and feel its very accurate with how I feel about my husband. We have been through so much in the past 10 years but through it all its always made us stronger. I don’t think we could have made it through if we didn’t consider each as a friend, an equal, as well as a partner.
If you read my post from last week you know my husband and I tend to like simple date nights at home without the kids. So for Valentine’s Day we decided to do just that instead of dealing with the crowds that go out.
It actually kind of started from this text my husband sent me about a week ago, one I couldn’t stop laughing but two I thought hey that could be fun. Disclaimer if you’re offended sorry get over it.
So yes my husband built us our very own tent fort for Valentine’s, and I put together some appetizers and alcohol. We kicked back and watched a movie and I’ll leave it at that.
So hopefully you all had a fun Valentine’s I know I did, LOL.
With it being the month of love and Valentine’s Day approaching, I thought this quote was a good reminder for this week. I think so many times we forget when we are having a disagreement that it’s not about winning the agreement its about seeing both sides and talking through a problem and dealing with it together as a team. I think that’s something you definitely learn the longer you are married.
So remember your a team in a relationship, so this Valentine’s don’t forget to celebrate each other.
I found this quote to be appropriate this week, as we have been having some challenges with a family member. Which at this time I won’t really go into detail. However we have discovered some lies and I hope that they have learned a valuable lessons since it really came back to bite them. The lie caused them more trouble than actually telling the truth and dealing with the problem when it happened.
Unfortunately I don’t think they will learn from it since they have a parent enabling them and acting as if its no big deal. It’s amazing to me that you would enable your child to lie and not accept the consequences of their actions, what exactly are you teaching?
So remember honesty is always the best policy.
I’m finally back after taking some time off from blogging to get through the holiday season. I had a fabulous Christmas and New Years and I hope you all did too! I definitely missed blogging but was so busy I didn’t need one more thing on my plate.
So I have been doing some pondering the past few days on what my New Years resolution would be. Would I go with the standard answer of lose weight, be more patient,etc. We all set these goals and sometimes we achieve them or they trickle off by the end of the month. I decided I wanted more of a motto or word to live by for the year, that would help me to meet all my goals.
I decided that word is:
Now that does not mean my goal is to go out and inspire the world necessarily. I chose this word because yes it feels good to inspire others but I also love when others inspire me!
My husband and I were inspired by a challenge to have a healthier lifestyle and that worked out great for us (yes we have fallen off the wagon with the holidays) now we know for this year our lifestyle and goal for being healthy is attainable. I hope that does inspire people, that the everyday person can achieve their goals to be healthy.
My 6 year old son inspires me everyday with his humor and love for life. He makes me want to try harder each day, to show him you can achieve anything you want.
If you have not come up with your resolution yet, think about this and possibly finding a word to live by this year and you may be surprised who it makes your list of resolutions possible.
Have a great first week of the new year!
