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!
Today’s inspirational quote is one that I have tried to take to heart in the past few months, with positive results. I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone, and have ended up with an amazing new job, an amazing new apartment, and new friendships. Amazing things can happen when you get up off the couch!
A big life lesson I’ve been seeing arise as a pattern in my life is that most of the best things happen when you work for them. Time and time again, the things that I have like, relationships, opportunities and experiences have come from me taking that first step.
Bravery is taking that first step, getting back up when you’re knocked down and trying again- over and over. Bravery is not being afraid of who you are or what you might become. Bravery is standing up for what is right, not matter the consequences or opposition. Bravery is not being afraid of what could happen. Bravery is being afraid of what won’t happen if you do not act.
So what can we focus on this week? Discover your comfort zone, love it, and then take a step just outside of it. Maybe you’ll find you can take another step and then another- and then amazing things will happen.
