Welcome to Motivational Monday! A safe space to lay it all out on the table- no one is perfect, and every one needs a boost now and again. What time is better than on Monday, that sunny little bright spot of the week? Pull up a chair, keep an open mind, and let’s start this week right!
If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done. We can apply this to anything in life- not just fitness goals as the picture above suggests, but goals at work and goals in our personal life as well. Waiting for certain timing or unrealistic circumstances to occur will only hinder your ability to move forward. We have to keep at something for it to be successful, and putting it off will (in most circumstances) only hurt in the long run.
I recently came across an article about the top 25 things that ‘dying people’ say they regret. While not a scientific study at all, it’s an interesting look at things we all should take more seriously – or not too seriously at all. Some things on the list include traveling, learning another language, seeing your favorite musicians, not being afraid to do things, making fitness a priority, and realizing how beautiful you are. Also included are things like appreciating the moment, finishing what you start, spending time with loved ones, and being grateful. You can check out the entire article here.
Some people spend their entire lives, or parts of their lives stagnant. Building up dreams, and not starting anything. We are all guilty of this at one point or another. As the wise Professor Dumbledore from the Harry Potter book series once said, “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
So what can we focus on this week? Getting started on that thing we’ve been dreaming about so we don’t regret it. It’s NEVER to late to start.
