Motivation Monday – Media Teaches Us

Hi folks

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.

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.

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.
