MLK Quote to Inspire You to Keep Moving Forward Through Any Situation

she-makes-cents-mlk-quotes

Sometimes unexpected things happen…2016 was proof of that.  The thing is, we cannot give anything the power to paralyze us in a state of anger, fear, grief, complacency, etc.  Today I wanted to share one of my favorite quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  I like this quote because it represents that there will be things in life that will attempt to block your path to greatness.  Sometimes we can even block our own blessings.  If you can’t fly then don’t shrug your shoulders and throw in the towel.  It’s so much easier to give up after the first roadblock (See  “How To Come Back from A Setback”).  Lace up your favorite pair of sneakers and get to running, girlfriend.  You might not get to your greatness quickly, but as long as you keep moving forward you are taking the necessary moves to get you one step closer than you were when you realized that flying was not an option.

{Monday Motivation} Do What Makes You Happy!

Happiness

Happy Monday Lovelies.  As you get started in your week….have your morning latte and go through your Snap feed, I want you to take a moment and really think about what makes you happy.  If you are not happy with your financial situation…change it.  Make time to up your financial literacy game (you can start here), create a plan to get you closer to your goal, and put the plan into action.  If your career is not where you want it, step back and examine what it is about your job/profession that makes you happy and what doesn’t.  If your relationship has many benefits, but you are not happy, it’s okay to start that conversation with your partner  about what will make you happier.  Life is too short to waste time doing something that has a negative impact on your happiness.   My birthday last week marked my new beginning.  I will  prioritize happiness in my life the way I see fit and I encourage you to do the same.  Remember, nothing is worth it if it doesn’t make you happy.

{Monday Motivation} Rich vs. Broke

Rich People Stay Rich By Acting.png

Today’s #MondayMotivation will hopefully inspire your thought process.  It is so hard to get caught in stuff….consuming “stuff”, showing off “stuff”, and being wasteful with “stuff”.  If you spend like you are wealthy, you will never be wealthy because you spent it all.  Instead of “acting” rich, why don’t you make positive changes to actually get to that status?  Like the word freedom, the word rich has so definitions.  Remember, rich doesn’t always have to describe someone’s financial state.   I motivate you to act broke with your spending and be rich in the things that really matter…like people and experiences that….FEED-THE-SOUL. Take this week and do things that make you feel like your best you.  Wishing you a great start to your week!
