Motivation Monday

Happy Monday, y'all! I'm enjoying writing these posts because I can share a little bit of what's going on in my life, and maybe give everyone a little bright spot in the middle of their Mondays. That's the idea, anyway.

So this week, I saw this quote and just knew I had to share it because it's been so relevant in my life lately:

How often do we wish it was the weekend? Or this summer, or even a few years from now? I think it's easy to get caught up in anticipation and get excited for something that isn't happening for a long time.
I know I have a tendency to wish my life away when things get tough. Lately I've been spending too much time thinking about what I'll do when I'm feeling better. While it's good to keep hope up, I need to remember that my life is happening now, whether or not I'm healthy.  So whatever your current season may be, try and embrace it more.
Hope your Monday is marvelous, and that you're all happy and healthy!
What's going on in your life RIGHT now that you are enjoying?

Stay beautiful,


  1. I love this! I always need to remember to count the blessings I have!

  2. It's true, sometimes I catch myself wishing to be in a different time of my life. "Oh, I can't wait until I have a family" or a house, or a steady job, or this and that... and I don't appreciate what I have and how truly amazing my life is right now. Because I am SO grateful for where I am, I just need to fully live in this season of my life and enjoy it :)
    I just moved to the big city a few months back, and I'm enjoying making new friends and exploring new areas! It's fantastic and I love every bit of it :)
    Thanks so much for this post, I love it!!

  3. This is great advice. I'm a first year pharmacy student and it is so easy to let the days fly past! Have a great day. xo
