Recently I said to a friend that I wish I could see into a crystal ball and see if I get to where I would like to be in the future and if I’m happy. My lovely friend then actually snorted out loud and said ‘why on earth would you want to do that, life is what you make it!’ So I guess she has a point....
This really got me thinking. If you read my regular Monday motivation posts you’ll know that the reason I started them was to change my attitude and become a much more positive person. I really do believe only good can come from this and I’m definitely feeling more happy for it. However, when it comes to getting to where I would like to be, I’m kind of useless! Up until the past couple of years, I’ve been really lucky and things have kind of just fallen into place or come my way at the right time. Now though, I am in a rut. I know I want to travel, to write, to meet a nice man and settle down one day but I am not really doing anything about any of it! I am the queen of excuses! Or if I am pro-active life has a tendency to throw curve balls my way. I would even go as far as saying my luck ran away a long time ago.
So today I am saying enough is enough!
Today’s quote is my all time favourite, I’ve been searching for it on pinterest and the likes for a while with no luck. So I decided to get creative and make my own. I hope you like it!
It’s so true, it’s how you play the hand you get given in life that matters, at the end of the day only you can make sure you get to where you want to be. So from now on, instead of making faces at the sour lemons, I am going to look into the positives and make lemonade! I am going to fight my own corner and I will move forward. Apologies for all the clichés, I’m on a roll here! I think it’s about time I started looking at where I’d like to be and how if like to get there. At present I am bored and fed up and I don’t want to stay feeling like this.
Happy Monday! xx
