Motivational Monday: Make 100% Of Everything

image

So I forgot to post last week because I’ve been so distracted. In the past week I’ve been writing essays and feeling ill with the flu but I think that’s all behind me now. Hallelujah!

Anyway, this week should be positive one because I’ve been thinking about the future. I feel like we don’t truly see how special a moment can be until it’s gone. Sounds soppy but I feel like I’ve taken for granted how far I’ve come and what I’ve done over the years. Like how I’m at uni studying something I really enjoy and I have met the best people here. It’s never too late to start enjoying it and getting my full 100% happiness from it.

This also goes for the bad things that happen to us, we should take them as they come and treat them as lessons because at the end of the day it’s what shapes us as people.

What have you been doing to make you feel 100% this week?

Motivational Monday: Don’t Be Afraid

imageLife is either full of adventure or full of regret! I’m starting to realise that I should really stop living life safely (the boring way) and start being more adventurous. I don’t want to live in regret later on.

I think this is one of the reasons why I’m pushing myself to do Camp America this year. It’s probably one of the scariest things I’ve ever considered doing but I know I want to. This is why I shouldn’t be afraid. I know it’ll be such an amazing experience so I need to bite the bullet and avoid feeling regretful in years to come.

Why don’t you do the same? If you’ve always wanted to do something crazy, do it! Don’t let anything stop you!

Here’s to being adventurous,

Motivational Monday: Ordeal or Adventure?

adventureI think attitude makes a big difference in the outlook in our lives. With a positive attitude anything can work out to be amazing! So lets make life an adventure always.

I’ve been so negative recently and I think that reflects the way I feel about my day-to-day outlook. This is why I think this is an appropriate goal for the week. Positivity will make things better!

 I think this also applies to all this Camp America malarky because it’s hit me that I’m actually going. I know it’s going to be amazing but I’m getting scared. I need to go back to the positives and get things sorted! A few things need to be done (medical check, dbs check and all that) but I need to be productive about it so it’s less stressful later on. I need to opt for the adventure option rather than the ordeal one!

Have you been adventurous recently?

Motivational Monday: Sharing Kind Words

nice wordsss

This reminds me of when family members used to say “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all”. I feel like sometimes as the selfish humans we are; we forget this. It’s so easy to say something negative when you’re upset, angry or just because you feel like it. But it’s hard to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagine the hurt that that negativity from others can cause.

On a positive note, do you remember ever blushing after someone has said something nice about you? It could be about your hair, the way you talk or just how smiley you are. The fact that you can remember the compliments makes this true. When someone says something nice you often remember it because we’re too good at pointing out our own flaws that it’s nice to feel fabulous in someone else’s eyes.

Just remember, the most simplest of things can either break you or make you. So make these positive for everyone by being nice. Share kind words with someone today!

Motivational Monday: You Don’t Always Need A Plan

breathe

I’m the type of person who gets really fed up and grumpy when I have nothing to do. I like to have plans, they make me get up in the morning. Otherwise, I’ll stay in bed until midday and this means I have wasted half the day. As much as I love sleeping in it gets so draining when it happens too often.

This quote just explains my not-so-hectic uni life at the moment. It drives me insane. This semester my course has decided to only make me go to uni 2 days a week. It’s like I’m doing a part time course. Which only means one thing- I turn into a lazy sloth.

I’ve realised that instead of being moody about it I need to stay positive and allow myself time to breathe. I don’t need to be busy, I need to enjoy my time off, I don’t need to always make plans either. If I wake up and feel lazy then it’s okay. Equally if I want to do something- do it! Life doesn’t always have to be organised. The time off will be appreciated when I’m super busy wanting more time off!

If you take anything from this post take my advice and enjoy having free time to let yourself breathe. Let go. Feel the freedom to do as you please.

What I’ve Been Pinning

Recently, I’ve really got into Pinterest. It took me a while but now it’s my first stop when I’m bored or in need of ideas. It’s just a really fun way of looking at pretty things and saving them for when they might be useful to me. Here is my list of things I’ve been saving. Continue reading

Motivational Monday: Make a wish

This past week I’ve been trying to be more positive because overall I’m quite a pessimistic person. This can really bring a person down. This post is about looking at the negativity in life and turning it into a positive experience. Continue reading

Read With Me: Girl Online

girl-online

Everyone knows Zoella, surely? She is probably one of the most popular beauty bloggers/youtubers. So, for Christmas I received her first book. At first I thought it might be a biography type of book but no, Girl Online is a novel! I have to admit even though she isn’t a writer I found it really well written.

“Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs about her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, her crazy family and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah: a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penning is falling in love – and capturing every moment of it on her blog.

But Noah has a secret too. One that threatens to ruin Penny’s cover – and her closest friendship – forever.” Continue reading

Motivational Monday: BE YOURSELF

be yourselfJust a quick reminder to just keep being yourself. You are amazing.

I can relate to this as it is almost second-nature to compare yourself to everyone else, but in reality- they are not YOU.

In relation to my blog. I did stop writing for a while because I completely lost motivation. I think it was because of this matter. I want this space on the internet to be more about ME rather than making it the same as what everyone else blogs about. At the moment this is an experimental process because I just want to get back into enjoying what I write.

Remember to always be yourself,
