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!

This week’s Motivational Monday is brought to you by the lovely Sprinkle of Glitter- her non-paraphrased post can be found at her blog here.

Do you ever feel a bit like you spend half your life trying to be cool? I do. I regularly wish I could suck back in the weird thing I’ve just said or not have made the unfunny joke or not done a little dance when over excited or not laughed so loudly. On a daily basis I try to be breezy. I try really hard to be as ‘normal’ and good as everyone else and pretty much every time I’m met with failure. My inner weird just gets out. To clarify, I’m not talking about that oh-so-desirable ‘weird’ that you might call ‘quirky’. I’m talking about an inability to edit my thoughts-words and a scewed sense of what is socially acceptable.
I’m giving up. I’m not breezy. I’m slightly neurotic. I like fast responses to texts. I like my imaginary island. I like sucking crisps. There. This week I urge you to let your inner weird out. I know it’s in there. I know you secretly do a lot of weird stuff and I know you want to do it freely. Wouldn’t a world of freely weird women [and men] be better than hoards and hoards of stressed out repressed crazies? Yes. It would. Edit yourself less. You think that joke is funny? Say it. Even if you’re the only one that laughed, at least someone did!

What can we focus on this week? Just be yourself!
