How has everyone’s week been? Mine has been typical here, a lot of learning, a lot of chaos and of course feeling worn out by the time the weekend hits. So this weeks challenge is going to be something a little but different. We have already taken a moment to sit with ourselves, we have found some new music and hopefully something exciting to read. Now we are going to find some words of wisdom.
I know that sometimes I just feel blah, you know just down, not motivated, kinda over it. Sometimes on these days the things that help the most are words, quotes, silly sayings, something that makes me smile or just refuel my determination. This week I want you to find your words, whether it be a silly quote that makes you laugh and helps you to carry on, or a mantra that gets you through a hard day (I often find mine to be “I will not kill the kids” 🙂 ). Find the one you like the best and put it up where you will see it. Get creative, make a poster with colors, glitter (if you like that), fancy script, a picture to go with it. If you don’t have a creative bone in your body grab a sticky note and put your quote up with that. We may not always have enough time to spend with ourselves but maybe we can give us a little inspiration to get through the day!
Let me know what you have found!! Here are some I love!
