We all know Monday’s aren’t everyones favourite day of the week. Monday’s are always going to be bad if you go into them with a bad attitude. Rather than complaining, get up, be thankful that you’re alive and healthy and start this week off ridiculously amazing! It’s up to YOU to find the beauty in the ugliest days.


When Monday rolls around for me, I see it as another chance, like a restart button, to have an even better week than the last. I set new goals for myself. I have a calendar that never leaves my side so I stay organized and on track. Everyday I try to do something I fear. My message to you all is to get out of your comfort zone! You’ll be surprised to know what you are capable of and how much you’ll learn about yourself and your potential because life is limitless!!! You only have one life so why not make the best of it and be the best version of yourself. Be the leader not the follower. Say ‘no’ to the norm, do what makes you happy, and leave an impact on this world. Don’t just float along in life waiting for something to happen, make it happen! And when I say make it happen, I mean NOW…TODAY…not tomorrow! Believe me when I say, I never thought I’d be where I am today. I have overcome so much in my life. I am stronger as a person because of all the obstacles that have been put in my way. So, why not YOU? We all have the same 24 hours and we all have the potential to succeed. You just need to find what you love and what makes you happy. You need to believe in yourself and have the right mindset. You might think life is tough, but just know that you are TOUGHER.

My phone background

Find a picture of a quote on the internet and set it as your phone background. Change it up every once and awhile. Right now mine is #8 – and when it says ‘Rise up’, to me that means ‘Get your lazy sleepy self out of bed!’. 🙂
