Monday’s get kind of a bad rap being the first day of the week and all. For a lot of people Monday means the end of weekend fun and the beginning of another work or school week. I think we can all agree that we’d much rather be hanging out with friends, playing with our pets, participating in race or other running festivities, or just chilling by ourselves at home instead of having to tackle our usual day to day responsibilities. But I still don’t think that we should be absolutely dreading the first day of the week. I think we should embrace it!
I think Monday is a fresh start! A brand new week full of opportunities to do great things! And the best part is that YOU get to decide what those great things are! It could be nailing a workout, giving a killer presentation at work, studying your ass off for a test, helping your kid with homework, finally scheduling that doctors appointment, cleaning your apartment, mowing your lawn, or literally anything that you need to get done. Isn’t it cool how just shifting your perspective a little bit can make those things feel just s little bit more doable? I sure think so anyway!
So on this wonderful new Monday I thought I’d share some of my all time favorite motivational quotes. These quotes inspire me to do great things, to give it my all, and to always give it my best shot. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
