It’s Monday again! Are you like me and you dread Mondays? I find myself, especially lately, living for the weekends and then Sunday evening comes and I start dreading Monday. Its hard to believe we are already over a week into August! Where has the summer gone? If your like me you’ve had a busy summer. Our summer has been full of adventures, family, friends making memories and having fun, but man am I tired! I recently purchased this little print from Lara Casey and I have spent a lot of time looking at it this morning and thinking about it and how true it is!


Life is crazy busy, I have 24 hours in each day and how do I spend them? Obviously I am busy with my two babies and I love that, but some days 24 hours doesn’t seem enough to get everything done I need to (or want to). Thursday morning we received a call that my husbands sweet grandma had passed away. Death is never easy, it always sends a real slap in the face as to how short life really is. She lived a great life for 92 years and leaves behind a legacy of 8 children, 19 grandchildren and 22 great grand children.  I hope I have 92 years but I am not garunteed that. Today, today is all I know I have and how am I going to spend it? Wishing for the weekend? Or accepting Monday with a smile on my face and saying “Jesus you’re all I need”.  As a young mom many days I find myself discouraged because I don’t get everything on my to-do list done or I don’t get a work out in, didn’t get to spend enough time working on my blog or I didn’t …. well you know how it is, there is always something and yet when I look at the faces of the ones I love, especially my sweet babies as they splash in their new water table, I can’t help but think my “to – do” list really isn’t that important. I love working on this blog, it is something I have dreamed of doing for a long time now and now that it’s actually happening, I’m passionate about seeing it succeed but when its all said and done the most important thing are the people in my life and how I am loving and giving my time to them.




This wasn’t the post I had planned to blog today but it is whats on my mind and heart so I felt the need to write it out. So here is Monday and I’m ok with that! The weekend will actually be here before I know it as I have a busy week ahead of me but thats ok because each day is a gift and I need to remember that. Re-focus my way of thinking and focus on that which is actually important not just what society or my brain tells me is.  How do you motivate yourself? Do you find Mondays tough? I really hope I am not the only one that does but we all struggle with things at different times of life and we need to be motivated and encouraged. May we challenge ourselves to motivate and encourage others! So… Heres to a new week, the gift of today and spending it loving and spreading love to the people in my life and whom I come in contact with today!

  • AMEN! Especially on this space where it can be so easy to compare and judge just be you don’t compare don’t judge be you - do you let your authenticity be your badge of honour let others love you for being YOU trust me when I say that kind of love and satisfaction with knowing that you are being true to yourself is all the approval you need! #mondaymotivation #beyourself
  • When your kids love your babysitter and beg for you to go out so she (and her sister) can come babysit it makes sense to go on a day date - thank you March break! Feeling blessed to have had time with him (almost) kid free and for an amazing babysitter who is an answer to our prayers!
  • Any one else ready for spring? The snow is pretty and this cold weather has me hibernating more this year than ever I’m ready for some sunshine and warmth... plus big things to look forward to in the spring - details coming!
  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
