Meaningful Mondays Quote "Don't Give Up"

“Don’t give up what you want most, for what you want now.”

—Unknown

Are the things you are doing now setting you up for what you want for yourself in the future?  Are you living your life without taking risks, or taking too many risks?  Are you saving up for something special, or spending recklessly?  Are you staying home and watching shows and playing computer games by yourself all the time, instead of going out and meeting new people or socializing?  Are you eating healthy and exercising, or living sedentary and eating unhealthy?  A lot of us live in a society of instant gratification, but sometimes the lifestyle choices we are making today, don't line up with where we see ourselves in the future.  If today, you aren't living in a way that is helping you attain your future life goals to be the person you want to be, and to live the life you've always imagined; you may want to look into the reasons that are stopping you.

Hope you have a Monday full of Joy!

  11. Ahh oh no you're making me feel bad! jk :p I'm naturally an introvert so my fiance and I love to just stay in and watch our favorite shows and play video games (infact he's playing games right now and we just finished watching Mad Men haha) but that's just who we are :p This is a really great reminder though for other aspects of our lives. Thank you for this motivational post!

    1. It's good to have a balance. Didn't mean to offend the introverts:) I have struggled with a few of these areas myself. Especially, spending a lot of money on clothes and shoes!

  15. I love that you do a motivational quote on Mondays! I (typically) have a series called A Case of the (Motivational) Mondays where I talk about stuff besides fashion involving self esteem and living a beautiful life from the inside out, but I'm currently on a hiatus with that but will be resuming in May or June. Great minds think alike?!?! Lol. That's awesome you take a moment to do that too!
