As you know I’ve hit a slump recently, and instead of fighting it, I just decided to accept it. I didn’t beat myself up over it, as much as I wanted to, I just went “okay, you’re in a bad mood. Go deal with it.” And that’s what I did.
So you may be asking, what did you do this weekend? Why didn’t we get a Rambles post on Sunday? Well that’s why. Instead of working or blogging, or Vlogging, I sat and had a day of films and Netflix. Surprisingly it taught me a lot that day, and reminded me that lessons can always be learnt, and the universe throws them out at us whenever it can, especially when we need it. We may not always see it at the time, but they’re still there.
Now I bet you’re thinking; what the hell is she rambling on about?
Let me explain.
You see, when I feel down, I feel like crap – I mean naturally right? Everyone does when they feel down. But I mean, sometimes it gets to the point where you physically can’t do anything, or the thought alone of doing it makes you feel so tired.
So when I was watching ‘About Time’, a film about a guy that can travel back in time only, I really wasn’t expecting a quote from it to lift me up as much as it did. Mainly because, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say this to anybody else. Which told me a few things about society today, but I’ll get into that in a bit. First I’ll give you the quote; Continue reading
Hey folks, how ya been?
So I’m aware that I haven’t posted anything since the 27th, and first off let me just give a huge apology to those of you that were expecting a post on this blog the last three days and didn’t get one. However the last three days I just needed a time out. Which I talked about previously a lot, before making this post.
What better a time to talk about this than on Motivation Monday?
Basically my mood kind of dipped, and I’ve been super paranoid about everything and everyone. So I just needed to take a step back, and focus on me for a few days. And said to myself “starting Monday, I’m going to BOSS this.”
So Sunday night, was unplanned and unexpected. After having a Skype chat and game with the Squad, I went to bed and just couldn’t sleep…again. When it came to Monday morning, I did not get up…until 2 hours after my bus was due. Quite obviously, I missed my bus. Which meant I had no transport to get into college without walking for 2 hours to get there, or using a service that overcharged and that I can’t afford.
I DIDN’T LET THAT STOP ME THOUGH.
With the true name of Motivation Monday in mind, I peeled myself out of my duvet and warmth, got some food, and got changed, then sat myself in the office (hence forth known as the ‘cave’) and have done 5 hours plus work on college. Which is MORE than what I would’ve done if I had actually gone to college.
The point of this blog post is, no matter what state of mind you’re in. It’s temporary. If you want to, and you work on it, you can pull yourself out of whatever slump you’re in. No matter how big or how small it is.
You got this.
Happy Monday guys!!
As we all know it is Motivational Monday (or Monday Motivation) whatever you want to call it. And today I woke up super duper moody. So really, for me, Moody Monday is a little more relevant.
It wasn’t until I realised that I’ve been grumping about everything all day, that I realised “You’re being hella negative today Sophie.”
And it got me thinking.
Negativity is something that can become a real nasty habit. Yes, a habit because that’s exactly what it is. I find that once I start I can’t stop, I’ll spend the rest of the day moaning or complaining and then wonder why I’m in such a bad mood?
Well I can tell myself this, the reason I’m in a bad mood, is because I haven’t said one positive thing all day.
So here goes, positivity:
- My makeup is pretty on point today.
- I’ve done 4 1/2 hours worth of college work today – GO ME! YAY!
- I managed to get help from a friend with Photoshop. Woo!
- Mum went shopping so now we have a house full of food and I can raid the cupboards anytime I like.
Already I feel a lot lighter. You should try it bromigo’s if you’re having a Moody Monday.
Now I’m going to write some more content for you guys, plan thursdays vlog, and…
KICK MONDAYS ASS.
Hope you manage to kick its ass too!

Since Jared has revealed that he battles with depression I really have to say that he’s doing an amazing job at keeping the Always Keep Fighting campaign going, and raising a heck of a lot of money to support people in need.
So if you needed any motivation today, I hope that quote is enough. If not? Then listen to me when I say YOU CAN DO THIS. If you’re feeling like you’re in a major slump, that’s okay, you’re allowed to feel however you want to feel. This is the first Monday of 2016, it’s enough to make anyone feel glum.
On the other hand though, THIS IS THE FIRST MONDAY OF 2016, MAKE IT DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER MONDAY. Go outside, go to work, to school, and do something DIFFERENT. Wear some crazy outfit that everyone will be like “wtf” about, why? Because YOU CAN. Go to school with your hair in the most amazing up-do you’ve ever done, or if you’re a guy, go to school looking proper dapper like. Or go smaller scale, where bright socks today! Or some crazy underwear and smirk as you walk around, like you’re holding the biggest secret known to man, because you’re wearing crazy underwear.
You can do this. You got this. Go show Monday who is BOSS.
