If you are anything like me, you are not too thrilled to be back to the grind after an AMAZING American Thanksgiving, filled with turkey, potatoes, turkey, apple pie, and – you guessed it – more turkey. And, though you may still have leftovers in the fridge, we can’t let the gluttonous, unproductive versions of ourselves carry over any longer (I admit, I gave it the long weekend, too!). I tend to look at Monday as my starting-over point. My take-off into the next week. The way I feel on Monday – as much as I hate it – dictates how I work and feel the rest of the week.
Lucky for everyone involved, I was feeling VERY inspired this morning. In fact, I finally started my morning workout routine again. I can no longer excuse myself with the weather changing and a warm bed calling my name, as that is how it will be for the next few months. No hibernating here!
Here are your Happy Tweets for the week! I hope they motivate + inspire + propel you forward into positive vibes for (at least) the rest of the week!
I know it is Tuesday, but it is my workweek Monday due to this past weekend’s wedding festivities.
Yes, Timmykins and I tied the knot, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Though I did get a little cranky with him last evening, so who knows if he is feeling the same…
Since I am starting back at work after a few days leave, I need a little motivation to back me up. And I think finding it in the form of Happy Tweets is the best way for the motivation to come to me. Why? Because they are short, sweet, memorable mantras that I can repeat to myself throughout the day. For confidence, motivation, and just pure happiness. Because, isn’t that something we ALL need at the start of a work week?
Happy Tweets Tuesday has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
It is always what happens when time gets away from me on Mondays, or motivation is lacking. The good thing is, it is less and less the latter these days, as inspiration to move forward towards my dreams is at an all time high. I mean, what can be more empowering than planning and physically setting out one of the biggest changes/steps/dreams of your life? For me, at the moment, it is the wedding to my Prince Charming, my Timmykins. But it’s also dreaming of our life. Setting the foundation of financial stability as well as planning the tiny steps to reach our dreams of travel, family, and potential business ownership: together.
What do Happy Tweets motivate YOU toward? What are your goals for this upcoming week? Small steps add up to big strides! Enjoy!
Imagine my surprise when I received this comment the other day from a reader:
I love your blog and have nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!
Thank you so much to Liv at http://morningcoffeebliss.wordpress.com for the nom! It means so much coming from a fellow inspiring blogger. You can check out one of my favorites from her (where she finds herself finding herself while in an uncomfortable situation) HERE!
Now, to fulfill the requirements that have been bequeathed unto me with this SPLENDID nomination:
1. Link back to your nominator: DONE. And I totally was going to do this anyways because I am so grateful for the nomination and what she writes every day!
2. Post the award image to your page: Alrightttttt, if I HAFTA (see above).
3. Share 7 facts about yourself: How about 7 things that I am grateful for?
My overall positive outlook on life
My loving family
My dreams that continue from sleep and get me through the day
Timmykins and the adventures that await us
My drive to continually evolve, and realize that EVERY day is the best day of my life 🙂
Every experience – good and bad – that has gotten me to where I am today. They were all teaching experiences
This outlet to remind myself of the happiness that is within, and that there is always reason to bring it out!
4. Nominate 15 other blogs and inform each blogger: Guys, these are ALL worth looking into. Each perspective is different, and each moment spent reading is a moment well spent. Enjoy!
This self-motivational journey of blogging has been a wonderful one so far. It reminds me to find happiness in my everyday life, as well as drives me to be more than I am. I hope that others use this outlet for the same purpose, and join me in CHOOSING happiness. Because, it IS a choice.
To those of you who continue to follow me/read my blogs even with the lack of updates: thank you! I will be much more active on here starting TODAY! I just had a little life break with a nice vacation last week, and am back up and running (though my mind is still partially off in la la land)
Since I am getting back into the groove of things, I am happy that it is Happy Tweets Monday! There have been a lot of wonderful tweets floating around, especially recently! For those of you taking the day off for Memorial Day, you can even save this post to read tomorrow to get you through your makeshift Monday 🙂
Enjoy, and always remember that happiness is a choice: choose it!
