Encouragement Today and Motivation Monday
Today’s encouragement and motivation was inspired by this quote,
“Your Monday morning thoughts set the tone for your whole week. See yourself getting stronger, and living a fulfilling, happier and healthier life.” Germany Kent
My Friend, open your planner or your calendar and plan your week so you claim the power over it before the chaos of the week claims it for you.
As this week begins, allow yourself the strength to remain calm no matter what the week looks like. Then after you are done planning prevent yourself from looking back at it as well as looking beyond the moment you are in. This will allow you the strength to take control over the day as well as your whole week.
I know for me, I have a tendency to start my Monday out by looking at the entire week and if it is packed before it starts, I begin to feel helpless, hostile, anxious, weak, and often times emotional as a result of everything that needs to be done. I allow the chaos to control me which leaves me feeling weak, vulnerable, and out of control. I do not like this feeling and try to prevent it as much as I can.
For those who know this feeling, also know how debilitating it can be and how disastrous this can be for your overall week. Protect yourself from this and allow yourself the ability to remain in control over your week so you can allow yourself to have an enjoyable and productive week.
Remember, you are stronger than you believe and you will have a good week if you do not allow chaos to run you. Take Control, My Friend! Happy Monday!
