Pep Talk?

I'm currently writing this with my Yankee Candle burning, in a hoodie with my hair in a top knot. Just thought you should know that..

Today I am going to write about something that has been bugging me for a while now and I know we all go through this from time to time: Lack of Motivation. Yes, the age old dilemma of how to get motivated. It's a toughie. I've read so many articles on the 'world wide web' about this topic and to be honest, some of them are not helpful in the slightest so I thought I'd give you a few tips, from personal experience.

Think Positive - This is the simplest thing. Think of a time you accomplished something and how you felt after. Great, wasn't it? Apply that to a current dilemma and think how you'll feel after you complete the task!

Baby Steps - I had this as my background picture for a while because I always tend to get anxious if I think about the big picture or how much work I have to do. If I divide it into smaller tasks, it doesn't seem as bad. Think of, in Friends, when Chandler wasn't sure if he wanted to go through with getting married. Remember Ross broke the process into small steps? THAT!

If at first you don't succeed... - Try, try again. Just because there's a bump in the road, doesn't mean you stop travelling. I always try to embrace the fact that with everyday I am learning. I feel that our failures make us stronger and more determined. Just keep swimming!

Self-assurance - Believe in yourself. You are the most powerful person in completing a task. We all get moments of doubt, but remember, you are stronger than you think!

So, that was my little pep talk for you!
What's your one tip for motivation?

  5. These are all such great tips! I think that believing in yourself can be the hardest thing, even when you're feeling relatively motivated. It's so hard to feel assured & confident, but it's SO important like you said! x


  6. Candles make everything 10x better! Oh, and a good quote is great motivation for a good day!
    I love the ones you have chosen especially 'Trust Yourself..'


  7. What a lovely and helpful post!! I especially liked the Friends reference and the pretty quotes. Whenever I need a bit of motivation I write myself a to-do list, and I'll put some simple stuff on there too, like "make a cup of tea and sort through email" because checking off the smaller things make you feel like you're really doing something, and then you're more motivated to do the big stuff!! But that's just me...


  8. I honestly loved this post! I have just recently made a few crazy decisions and was finding it hard to decide and not totally happy before. But now i honestly believe a happy and healthy attitude is key to everything - if you can see the good side in everything and wake up happy and positive you will go a long way!

    Less is always more, I like to be adventurous but I hardly wear bright colours or pieces.. I love this whole look and the trainers just stand out. You look so chic and cool as always and the photos are great. Hope your having a lovely week and excited to see how you style the trench!!

    Happy Friday,
