Motivational Monday


EVERY MORNING WHEN WE WAKE UP,
WE ARE CONFRONTED WITH A CHOICE:
ANOTHER DAY JUST LIKE THE LAST
OR
A CLEAN SLATE TO START ALL OVER.
(Mark Sanborn)

I choose the clean slate.

I choose laughter and love. 

I choose good instead of striving for, and failing to reach, the imaginary perfect

I choose to treat myself with kindness and respect instead of berating myself for not being enough

I choose reading instead of cleaning and cooking.

I choose art, creativity, imagination, and passion.

I choose gratitude.

What about you? What will you choose today? Tomorrow? Next week?

  1. I should choose the clean slate, but sometimes I feel like each day is the same as the last. Trying to make some changes to fix that.

    1. Sometimes you have to experiment to see what works for you and what doesn't.

  3. Usually when I wake up I want to choose to go back to sleep. ;) But in all seriousness, I like to choose positive and make it a good day.

    1. Hmm, maybe choosing a nap later in the day would be a good idea. :)

  8. I choose laughter, love, new horizons, and family joys. I choose exercise and health, and going outside, but I also choose writing and reading, and sitting in the sun. :)

  10. I choose optimism and hope over self-doubt and fears of failure.

    I choose to be active instead of continuing to sit on the couch.

    1. I need to choose activity over sitting on the couch way more than I do. Thanks for the reminder!
