Motivation Monday: Know your worth

I know it’s been awhile since I last blogged.  I know it’s been a minute since I sent some motivation your way.  It’s been rough.  I haven’t felt very motivational lately.  I’ve felt like I’ve been the one who needed to be motivated.  I didn’t really know if I should be the one providing you with motivation when I was looking for it myself.  My

My postpartum journey has been a process.  There are days I think I have it completely together and then other days when I feel like it’s like poop on the floor. It’s just life, I know. The biggest lesson I have learned along the way is to know your worth.

Things will not always go ok.  Things may be the best they’ve ever been.  In all the moments in life, it is important to know your worth.  It’s easier to realize your worth in the happier situations so that feeling is one that you should take with you in every situation.  It is harder to know your worth when you are dealing with trouble times.

I’ve said it time and time again, don’t let those down times define you as a person.  Things will not be easy, but how you DEAL with those times makes you the person that you are.  Those are the times to know your worth and fight for what is important to you.

Knowing your worth means you recognize that all BS that is spouted your way in the world doesn’t really matter.  You are worthy of any dream you want to accomplish.  You can work hard to achieve your desires.  You do matter because our differences make the world come together.  You are loved, even if you feel like no one else loves you.  You can always say that you love yourself.  Because you should always love yourself.

It is more than important that you know your worth when dealing with any situation.  You never want to sell yourself short or lessen your accomplishments because you don’t feel worthy.  Every good thing that comes your way is well deserved and every bad thing doesn’t mean you’re worthless (no matter how many of those bad things comes your way).

Motivation from within

Motivation from within

I’m still stuck on a motivation kick. Maybe because I’m kicking it into high gear because I lacked motivation for the summer. Guess what? Summer is over and it’s time to move on. I don’t want people to go through the serious rutt I was in that essentially ended up wasting my time. It’s not Monday, but I still have a message to motivate. Here’s the video: There are a few things I really want you to take away from the video: 1. Motivation should come from within. Yes, when I’m in a certain setting, I push and motivate people… View Post

The truth about stress

The truth about stress

Wondering where I’ve been the past couple of weeks?  I’ve been stressed.  It’s left my unmotivated to do much.  I’ve still be working out because HELLO that’s a big stress reliever.  I think if I didn’t workout, I would be a bundle of nerves and anxiety.  When I’m stressed or in a foul mood, the blog is really the thing that suffers. It’s easy to talk about all the great things going on in life but when things aren’t so great sometimes it’s just hard to find the words.  It’s hard to find the words to motivate and inspire others… View Post

Break out of the holiday rut

Break out of the holiday rut

There’s still one big event left in the holiday season but you can break out of the holiday rut now.  Christmas cookies have been consumed and that holiday meal is behind us.  It’s time to get active and burn off those holiday calories.  How exactly can you break out of the holiday rut? Here are some of my suggestions: 1. Just suck it up and work out.  The good thing about being a fitness instructor is I have no choice but to jump right back into the swing of things so I had no problem with it.  I promise if… View Post

The one about lacking the motivation

The one about lacking the motivation

This past weekend was doozie for me.  I didn’t really want to talk to anyone, do anything, or even concentrate on television.  I completely lacked the motivation to move.  All I wanted to do was sit on the couch and maybe watch some television, but that was a BIG maybe. I don’t know what put me in this horrible mood, but it happened.  Last Friday I decided I needed a work out break because my workouts that week sounded like I was ordering hamburgers from Wendy’s:  triple (M), double (Tu), triple (W) and double (Th).  When Saturday morning came around… View Post
