The Monday Blues
I definitely get the Monday blues and to help me ease into it sometimes I look at motivational quotes. Sometimes a really good quote helps ignite the fire in me to get the week started. But the truth is, you don’t need just a Monday to look at motivational quotes. Whenever I am stuck in a rut, I look at motivational quotes. I don’t know why but something about them speaks to me and makes me realize I can do anything or that I’m not alone.
If you noticed, on Pinterest, I’m slightly obsessed with quotes and I have a board dedicated to them. In my weekly newsletter, there is always a motivational quote. Whenever I feel inspired, I always want the people around me to feel inspired too.
So to jump start your Monday, here are some motivational quotes. I hope this makes your day or week go by smoother. And always know, no matter what you are going through, you got this. Don’t lose hope and you are not alone.
Monday Motivational Quotes
“I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass.” ~ Shonda Rhimes
“You will not always be the smartest person in the room, and you will not always be the strongest or the funniest or the most talented. But you can always be brave and you can always be kind, and these are the things you should be every minute of every day for the rest of your life. Because yes, those other things, they’re great things. But these things are better.” ~Unknown
“Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. You teach people how to treat you by deciding what you will and won’t accept.” ~ Ann Taylor
“We are not perfect human beings, nor do we have to pretend to be, but it is necessary for us to be the best version of ourselves. We can be.” ~Satsuki Shibuya
