I have a Monday uniform: fun, bright socks, my favorite shorts and a tank. It’s the way I prevent a case of the Mondays.
On Monday, I want to be happy and excited about all the opportunities and challenges that are coming, so I dress that way. Now, the shirt says one of my favorite quotes and it’s a really goo reminder on a Monday:
Make muscles, not excuses. As in, don’t make excuses, go make some muscles instead. It’s empowering in that we have control. As soon as we lose our excuses, we find our results. What’s great about Monday is it’s a brand new opportunity to be who we want to be. To be how we want to be. To do the things we want to do.
Today, if you want to be the kind of mom that doesn’t yell at your kids, you can be that. Make it a point to see things as a teachable moment or make more buffer times in your schedules, but don’t make excuses.
If you want to be the kind of person who works out every day, you can do that. Make time in your schedule, at least 10 minutes, and workout, but don’t make excuses.
Today, if you want to be the kind of person who has a clutter free home, you can do that. Make one room or one drawer the way you want it, but don’t make excuses.
Make muscles, not excuses. Take action, trash excuses.
If you want help in making these things happen, that’s what I’m here for. Let’s work together!
