I have been so dang great about my Motivational Monday Freebies actually being on Monday so I am a little disappointed in myself! What I am proud of is knowing that I was going to be in an all day Professional Development Training for work this Monday, I adjusted my weekly schedule in my Happy Planner (if you don’t know about the Happy Planner from MAMBI, you need to google it!) and designed the Printable on Sunday! What I didn’t count on was my computer being a jerk last night!
So here we are! @#$% happens, right?
Life is tough, my darling, but so are you! Today I need this reminder. God has a funny way of doing things and his timing is ALWAYS PERFECT. When I stumbled upon this quote from Stephanie Bennet-Henry, I knew I had to do something with it. Partly because I can’t resist the word, DARLING! Can. Not. Get. Enough. What I didn’t know was that Tuesday, I would need these words way more than I did on Monday! God’s timing is not our timing. It’s way better!
Happy Motivational Monday on this Tuesday, y’all!
I am in dyer need of motivation this Monday. It’s really easy for me to get discouraged when things are slow. It’s hard to stand out in a SUPER saturated market and there is a LOT of people that do what I do. A lot of people that have been doing it a LOT longer than me and are WAY better at it too! But that’s OK. I’m OK. Everything is going to be OK!
I feel like this Virtual and Digital world of mine is making me desperate for acknowledgement! Please LIKE me, SHARE me, FOLLOW me! NOTICE ME FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! I’m OK. Everything is gonna be OK!
I am thankful for the people that have gone before me, that will come after me and the ones that are chugging right along beside me! I thank God that he gave me my own set of talents that my small, but growing fan base appreciates and keeps coming back for more.
So you see , It doesn’t matter what you do or how many people are doing it all around you!!! NOBODY CAN DO IT LIKE YOU! So you keep doing you and I’ll keep doing me and everything will be OK!!!!
It’s not really that hard to do, ya know? There is a million little things that we can do to “throw kindness around like confetti.” Smile at people, say hi, hold a door for someone, tell someone they look pretty! Make it your business to build people up. Our world is sad and hurting. You may be sad and hurting. The best way to feel better is to help other people feel better. This I know to be true, from experience. The more you do it, the easier it becomes and it becomes part of your nature. You never know what your kindness can do for someone. You just might be the reason someones day becomes brighter or their heart becomes lighter. Kindness can do all sorts of amazing things that meanness can not. We all know what meanness can do. Terrible things. Hurtful things. Sad and mad things. We all know those people that carry meanness in their heart. The truth is, is that they are hurting too. Show them kindness. Kindness heals all kinds of hurts.
I am challenging y’all to stuff your pockets with Kindness Confetti and get out there and throw it around! Even to the people that are not very nice! Throw that confetti in there face HARD!
Have an amazing week and Happy Monday!
Isn’t she a beaut? I am OBSESSED with this design and it’s not just because it is so stinkin’ pretty! Although I have found that, for me, looking at pretty things does make me happy, It also reminds me that I have a CHOICE to make this day RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING!
I make things that I actually print and display in my home and my work area to inspire my days along or keep me going when I start to wonder “why the heck am I even doing this because who even reads this blog of mine when there are a million others out there that are way more talented and have much more important things to say than me?” Let’s be honest here folks, we all struggle with self doubt and that is why we need beautiful reminders to keep us moving in the right direction! That’s why I began Motivational Mondays. For you AND for me!
Later this week I will do a posting on one of my favorite ways I display my Prints in my home office. Which is a fancy way of saying my bedroom since Mr. Melindy started working from home and stole my beautiful studio away from me! Ok, he didn’t steal it. I just had to carve out a teeny tiny corner of it for him to “borrow” for 8 hours a day. It’s all good!
Now get out there and Make Today Ridiculously Amazing!
Haters gonna hate, hate, hate…………
We all know and LOVE Tay-Tay’s Shake it off song. Even if you don’t love it, I know you know all the words and you sing along. EVERY. TIME. Anyhoo, not only is it a super catchy song but it’s got a super message. SHAKE IT OFF!
Players, gonna play, play, play………..
Basically people are gonna do what they do. There is not a lot you can do about it. Most of the time there is nothing you can do about it. The only thing you gotta do is SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!
I have been super lucky, no, Blessed to be surrounded by peeps that believe in me and want to see me succeed and be happy. I am my own worst enemy. So I have to SHAKE OFF my own negative thoughts and beliefs about myself. I am a big fat self bully! (see did I really need to throw “fat” in there?)
For those of you that have to deal with the players, and the haters and the dirty, dirty cheats of this world, let me leave you with this thought. You are not responsible for others opinions of you or how they treat you. You are responsible for how you react and how you let if affect you!
It’s not you, it’s them so break up with ALL OF THEM!
Just Shake it off!
Happy New Year! 2016 is gonna be THE year, I can feel it. The year for what? WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO BE! (insert clapping, loud shouts of joy, and even a few fist pumps for MORE emphasis!) I was given a beautiful little sound machine in my Christmas stocking so I can “insert” sounds for emphasis all day long, baby! I highly recommend y’all get one. I could go on for days about it but that is a whole ‘notha blog.
This one is about MOTIVATION and INSPIRATION! I am super excited to share my first MM (Motivational Monday) Printable with you. Words are powerful. Thoughts are powerful. Submerse yourself in positive ones. Speak and think kind ones. Try it! I promise it will make a huge difference in your mindset. Change your mind, change the world. Sounds like something somebody once said but I don’t know who or when so just go with it.
This year I am CHOOSING to believe in myself on PURPOSE. It’s all about choice. You can choose to be happy in all circumstances or you can choose to be a miserable cow in all circumstances. I wanna be a happy cow! (Now that’s printable inspiration right there.)
Now go forth and print that printable and enjoy some pretty motivation to gear up for the week that is ahead of us. I would LOOOOOOOOVE to see how you display your MM Printable. Email me a pic and I will send you a surprise!
I love the “BOOing” tradition that popped up several years ago! For me, it all started when my Dear oldest friend (I’m talking we go way back to freshman in high school old) “BOOed” us! Our boo bag was filled with the cutest tricks and treats EVER!
So in an effort to measure up to Christine’s cutie level of “BOOness” I have created these Spooky printables so you can get the “BOOing” party started!
Free Pumpkin Spice Printable!
It’s been a super long time since I did a freebie Friday, or anything on here for that matter! Life got super scary not too long after the last freebie Friday posting! Mr. Melindy had a major heart attack and gave us all one too! It’s a miracle from God that he is still with us and we thank HIM for that everyday. He just went back to work this week so I figured I would honor him by going back to “work” here as well!
Happy Fall! Happy October! Happy Pumpkin Spice Everything!
Every now and then we all need a little reminder of how spectacular we really are! Boom, Boom, Boom even brighter than the moon, moon, moon!
Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
I know that I have missed a couple of our Freebie Fridays and I am super duper sorry about that! Things have been crazy around the Melindy home the last couple of weeks. Little Melindy turned 13 and we had an adorable Alice in Wonderland themed tea party!
Then we took some Family time and went off on a much needed campin’ and beachin’ adventure! A great time was had by all!
Head on over to our Facebook page and grab your 4th of July printable!
