I’m a big fan of images that provide inspiration to get up and going… Sometimes they are serious, like this one from City Bicycle Company:
And sometimes they just make me giggle and give me the extra boost to get started, like this one I found on Buzzfeed :
But there are days when no matter how funny or motivational these images may be, there is very little that will get my butt moving – and not even the extra large coffee helps.
And that’s okay.
Human beings aren’t made to be gun-ho ALL OF THE TIME. It’s exhausting.
It’s like being the positive one in your group. If you are the one who has to always find the silver lining, or be the one to crack a joke to ease the tension, it can wear you out.
No one is happy all the time (except Elmo – and you can’t trust someone who is happy all the time) it’s just not natural. And being motivated all the time is kind of the same thing.
It doesn’t matter if it’s motivation to work out every day, to get the job you want, finish school, reach a monetary goal or whatever, only you know what pushes that specific button, to get you up off your butt and out the door.
But somedays you just want to look at anyone who tells you that you ‘just need motivation’ and punch them in the throat.
(okay, so maybe that’s a little drastic, but you get the idea)
So in an attempt to not only give me an extra boost at the beginning of each week, cause let’s face it, Monday’s can be hard sometimes, I’m going to put a little Monday Motivation out there for you. And if it makes you want to get up and get down with your bad self, than fantastic. And if it makes you want to reach through the computer and slap me, well, that’s okay too (since, like wormholes haven’t been fully tested yet, so I don’t have to worry about random slaps coming through the screen at me…).
So here’s to grabbing the proverbial bull by the horns and reaching those lofty goals.
Till next time,
