Motivational Monday!

24 Mar

I feel like I have said this a million times, but how is it possible that it was 60 yesterday and this week we may get snow…??!? Come on spring….

Anyway, I was looking through Tumblr for a good quote for today. If you ever want some inspiration, look up “inspirational quotes” or something related and you’ll find a lot of great stuff. I love Tumblr in general for discovering funny things, news, GIFs, etc. Here’s the quote I found:

inspirational quote

I read it and it immediately got me thinking. I mean, I think no matter what…even if you followed all of your dreams and gut instincts, you’d always regret something or wish you had done something else, BUT I like the message here. Pursue your goals and see what happens. You might regret it, or it may not work out, but it’s better to try. I think it would be scary to see “the person you could have become.”

Even now I think back to when I was a teenage and how I thought my life would be by now…and it’s totally not! Sometimes it is disappointing to think about but it also makes me want to work harder to get to where I want to be, so that when I’m 45 I’m not looking back to now and remembering how I wanted to accomplish X,Y,Z. Did that make sense? I feel like I just started rambling… 😛

What do you think about this quote?

What did you think you would accomplish by now when you were a teen? It’s not necessarily a bad thing if you haven’t done those things! Some of those desires were totally unrealistic 🙂

Another Monday…another week. I’m super excited for this week because it’s NYC Social Media Week! I’ll be going to 2 events on Thursday and possibly one on Tuesday. I’ll be writing more about this in a post later today.

Here’s today’s inspiration:

Have you ever been afraid to try something? Because you were afraid you wouldn’t be able to do it? That’s how I felt back in 2010 when I started thinking about trying a half-marathon. My mom and I were so scared, and did not think we’d be able to do it. Then we did…and then we committed to a full marathon-and were petrified! But now, 2 marathons later, we know it’s something we can conquer, and every year we work to improve our times and continue to run 🙂

Had we not decided to try a half-marathon, we would never know what we were capable of. Sometimes you may think, “I could never do that.” Stop and think, is that true? Or do you just think you couldn’t? I say, I could never do a triathlon, but now I’m considering trying a mini one and seeing where that goes.

Going along with this, I was watching the Olympics and heard the story of an athlete who wanted to go to the Olympics, so she started skiing 4 years ago. Never skied before! And is now in the Olympics. You really never know what you can accomplish.

Is there something you have said you would never do, but then ended up doing?

Is there something you think you can’t accomplish ever? Why?

Can you believe it is now December? Less than a month left in 2013! Wow…

Today’s motivational quote inspired me this weekend. As you know, I launched my own social media consulting business after grad school. I’ve been working part-time while trying to get more clients. It’s been going well, but it’s has had its ups and downs, which is expected. Some days I really feel like giving up on that dream…but then I see things like this and rally:

I’m taking a chance, but it’s a chance I can take right now, as opposed to when I’m older and need more financial security. It’s hard and stressful, but I want to continue to work on this goal and see where it takes me. If it doesn’t work out, then it doesn’t work out-but at least I tried.

What chances have you taken recently? 

If you own a small business, what tips can you give me? 😉

I can’t believe it is already June! I hope summer doesn’t fly by but I have a feeling it will…

Here is a quote I found and it instantly resonated with me:

Whatever your dreams are (traveling, starting a business, getting fit, trying out Crossfit…aka ANYTHING!) go after them! It is an adventure and that is what makes life exciting. Sure, sometimes it can be scary to try something new (like I always get nervous trying new classes like spin or BodyPump) but after you dive in, you feel great and accomplished…and are one step closer to your goal, whatever that may be!

Have you tried a new class or endeavor recently? What was it??

20 May

I’m back! And officially have my Master’s degree 🙂 I will post all about my crazy past week in the next few days.

Today’s quote is about the future, as I’ve been thinking a lot about it with graduation at all:

I love this quote. Commencement is about the future, and believing in your dreams. I’m so excited to start a new chapter of my life and pursue my goals and aspirations. We’ll see what happens!

Always believe in your dreams no matter how big or small they are…no matter what they have to do with. We each have dreams that we may share with others, or may hold to ourselves, but life is about pursuing them without fear of failure. You never know what will happen, good or bad, but I’d rather try than live with regret.

Have any of you graduated or are graduating in the coming days? Congrats to the Class of 2013!!
