Hellooooo everyone and happy Monday!!
Can you believe its already April? This is so exciting, especially because the beginning of April marks about one month of me blogging! Thank you all for being here with me every step of the way and for reading what I write! Its finally starting to warm up here in Reno, but I know a bunch of other parts of the country are getting snow today!
I’m super excited for this Motivational Monday today. Without further ado, let me tell you what I’ve been thinking of lately!
Dont go to the grave with life unused
I know that I generally use quotes about following your dreams and things like that. So, this one is a bit different. Basically what its saying is that we only have a certain amount of time in our lives, so we have to live it up. YOLO!
I know there are a lot of people (myself included) that consider themselves homebodies or introverts, and are most comfortable at home, cozied up with a movie and a glass of tea. And of course, there are times where that is absolutely what you need to do. But, so many people, myself included, need to remember that there is so much joy in being with people, going on adventures, staying out late, driving with the music blaring, and just doing anything that makes us feel as alive as possible.
Think about it..
I think if we realized how short our time on earth was, we would spend a lot fewer days sleeping more than we need to, and a lot more days playing in the snow, staying up all night with the people we love, and doing anything that makes us feel alive!
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the future one day when I’ll have grandkids and they’ll ask me for stories. I sure hope that I’ll have some good ones to tell them! I know my grandparents did, and most of the reason for that is because they sometimes broke the rules, and tried to get the fullest out of the time they had!
So, my advice this Motivational Monday is this… Put your phone down, call your friends, drive a little too fast, explore, and do anything that makes you feel grateful to be alive! Life is way too short to get wrapped up in a job we hate, counting down the days until we can do the next thing. Dont just anxiously wait for everything to be over! Cause, one day you’ll be wanting that back! Live it up! The good, the bad, and the ugly!
So go have a great Monday, and do something that makes you happy today!
