The things I’ve enjoyed this month: June

Going through the month interacting with social media is interesting and fun. But, how many of those “likes” do we really remember?

This is my way to give those social media influencers a little bit of a boost. Because I know a lot of them help each other as well.

Here are my favorite social media posts and accounts (with a little silliness) for the month of June.

Hopefully, you enjoy them as much as I have this past month,

Motivation and inspiration for every day life of everyone

Motivation and Inspiration for every day life:

Motivation and inspiration-

Ever since I was very young I have always taken comfort in quotes and sayings from others. My earliest memory of this is when my grandmother was speaking of growing older. I had never thought of the subject before then and was very curious. I asked her if she missed her younger days. Her answer to me was quite simple. She said, “Age is a matter of mind, If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter”. I’ve carried that with me and have used it several times in my life so far.

Years later as I recall, my mom was comforting me after a particularly upsetting day. I do not remember what was so upsetting at the time, but I’m sure it was horrible in my mind at that age. She said to me that day, and on so many other occasions when I was upset. “This to shall pass”, meaning, no matter how difficult it may seem at the time, the pain will go away and you will be happy again. She still uses that with our family to this day and I’m sure it is as comforting to the rest of them as it still is to me.

Today I want to share some more quotes and sayings that help me through some tough times. Being a stay at home mom is a lot of fun but it does get frustrating and difficult at times. These sayings and quotes help a lot and also just put a smile on my face.

Quotes and Sayings from some great people-

 

Ruth Gordon said:

courage

“Courage is like a muscle, we strengthen it with use”

Virginia Woolf said:

truth

“If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people”

Rosalene Glickman Ph. D. said:

doyourbest

“Every situation is an opportunity to do your best”.

Fred Devito said:

motivation to CHANGE

“If id doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”.

Wilma Rudolph said:

reward

“The reward is not so great without the struggle”.

Wayne Dyer said:

choice

“Be miserable or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, its always your choice”.

Zig Ziglar said:

success

“The real opportunity for success lies within the person and not in the job”.

Jim Rohn said:

RUNTHEDAY

“Either you run the day or the day runs you”.

Motivation through inspiration-

“It’s not about being perfect. It’s about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that is where transformation happens. That is how change occurs”.

-Jillian Michaels

As I said in the beginning quotes have been a big part of my life for so long. I hope these inspire and motivate you as much as they have for me.

What are some of the quotes or sayings that have helped you through your life? Are there any mantras that help you when you are going through tough times? Please share them with me in the comments.

Thank you for reading and I hope you come back again. Have a wonderful day!

I am doing a giveaway on my facebook page Allie’s Mommy Blog. It is not very mommy specific but I think it’s a great book and a lot of people will enjoy it. I am giving away a copy of YouTuber Shane Dawson’s new book It gets Worse. He is a very funny, very interesting person. Check him out Here. He is very free speaking so if you do not like things like that this is not for you. That is okay though because I have many other things for you to enjoy in the future 🙂

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Short post today. Not what I had planned because I did no prep of any kind. This was supposed to be yesterdays post but I got very bad news and I’m still processing and I am very emotional.

Today, I don’t feel like thinking very much. I’m just going to do a sort of stream of consciousness with photos I have collected the last couple of days.

Life is difficult. And way to short.

Life goes on… the sun still shines and for some reason you still breath… in and out.

“In every change, in every falling leaf there is some pain, some beauty. And that’s the way new leaves grow.”

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”

Inspiration Reactions: How does it make you feel?

Inspiration Reactions: How does it make you feel?

I remember being in catholic high school, (well, it was only 13 years ago). So, First thing in Theology class our teacher would have a bible passage written on the board. We would have to copy it in our journal and then write at least four sentences on what it meant to us. Then, we would discuss our feelings and get to know each others thoughts. That was my favorite part of the day. Mostly, because I loved being able to express myself with others instead of being told what something was “supposed” to teach me. It was very relaxing and fun.

So, I would like to take that same idea and apply it to a few quotes. I will give my perspective and I would love if you could add your ideas on some of them. I think it will be a lot of fun and eye opening. Lets get to the inspiration!

.________________.

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing”.

inspiration for life and blog

This quote speaks to me in different ways. It reminds me of what my mom always used to say, “Anything worth doing is worth doing well”. If you don’t love what you do, you will never put in the work needed to be successful. You will not care about the process or the end result because your isn’t in it totally. Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.

._____________________.

“Remind yourself that its okay not to be perfect”.

short-inspirational-quotes-16

I picked this one because I hate that word. PERFECT- definition: Having all the required or desirable elements, qualities or characteristics, as good as it is possible to be. WHAT?! Who decides this standard?!?!! This word should never be used for a person in any way! It was made to describe an object. Like, this pen writes perfectly. It has all the qualities a perfect pen needs. People are so different and remarkable that there is absolutely no ONE “perfect”example. I just don’t like it.

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”.

This is a great one Keep your eye on your passion and don’t forget why you started. Strive to reach your goal every day. Don’t be afraid to take a risk to better yourself.You will look back and be so proud of yourself for doing what you never thought you could.

“View life s a continuous learning experience”.

inspiration for life

I know for a fact of course that I learn not just something but a lot of new things everyday. So many different aspects of life amaze me. My daughter is definitely my biggest teacher. She teaches me so many different things, like how to be humble. How to get back to the basics in life and just be happy with what you have right now. How to love so freely and with out condition. She is my everything.

._________________,

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.

I chose this quote because it is my favorite from Dr. Wayne Dyer. He was such an inspirational speaker and all around great person. Change your thoughts change your life. (this is not sponsored but I love his books so much I want to add a link to my favorite. Excuses Begone) If something isn’t going your way change your perspective. Look at it in a different way and see the good in it. There is always a way to make your situation better.

._____________________.

And one more…. my Grandmother used to say this as she got older.

“Age is an issue of mind, If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter”.

49f569304d6044176ace5a2276272c9a

I always laughed because I never knew what she meant. Looking back now I recall that she never let her age get in the way. It was never an issue for her. She did whatever she wanted right up to the day she died. She has always been my inspiration. It has been 12 years and still everything she did and said resonates in my life. She was a beautiful, smart, loving, wonderful woman who taught me so much about life and what really matters.

So, that is enough inspiration for now. Hopefully you will be touched by one or more of these quotes and want to share your thoughts with me.

Thank you for reading. Hopefully, I didn’t bore you to much. Have a wonderful day!
