Motivation Monday: Taking Control

One day I woke up and decided enough is enough; I’m taking over my life again. I have the power to turn a Monday into a Friday kind of day. Yes, I know Mondays are always a pain but only you can make yourself feel better. Look around you and I bet you’ll always find something to be grateful for even on a “this is so not my day,” kind of day.

We all know the feeling we get when we dress up in a cute outfit to impress someone. Well why not dress up cute for yourself? This makes you feel better from inside and when you feel good from the inside, you glow from the outside. Smile, sparkle and shine because life is full of happiness. We need to grab control of our lives. Don’t let society or bad luck dull that sparkle.

Stop waiting for Mondays to end, Fridays to come, for love to fill your life, or for happiness to come your way. You need to get out of your comfort zone and start making things happen. True happiness is getting out of your way and risking it all in order to obtain your goal no matter what life throws at you. 

Don’t ever be dependent on someone or something. It’s your life, you live it the way you want to. Taking control of your life and making sure you are happy sometimes means that you can’t have a plan for everything because life is so unpredictable. It just means you wont let a day or someone define happiness for you. Have the guts to leave behind whoever or whatever doesn’t make you happy and keep doing fun things with people who make you happy. By experience I’ve learned that I don’t need a herd of people in my life. All you need is one person who knows your worth and knows how to cheer you up when life gets rough. I believe there is always something good in everything, we just need to learn where to look in order to find it.

Taking control means freedom because at you don’t care about what people think and you won’t let anything come between you and your inner peace. Try to think of it this way, of course we all have our ups and downs but it’s your call whether to fall and stay down, or to fall and have the ability to get up again. It’s important to learn from your mistakes and to move on. Remember taking control of your life means impressing YOURSELF, not the people around you. Also, nothing lasts forever. Hard times will come and go. Don’t lose yourself through out the journey. Take control, take risks, sparkle and enjoy the bumpy road.
