Motivational Monday ~April 12th

It’s Monday and we are having real April weather here where I live. Yesterday was sunny and windy, then in the evening it started to rain. This morning it was snow everywhere. About 0,2 meters have come down during the night, and it’s still snowing. But it’s suppose to go over in rain later today. So April weather.

As I have mentioned before I am struggling with my mental health at the moment. This makes me try and think more positive and change my thoughts. So Motivational Monday is important to me, since it kind of starts my week of in a right mindset. I try to find quotes on Google or on Pinterest. This morning this quote was one that I thought was fitting.

Being an optimist is not always easy, but having a more positive outlook always helps me. I always try and see the glass as half full instead of half empty. And being optimistic can help turn bad thoughts into better thoughts. We need to be kind to ourselves just as we would be to a friend who are struggling.

So be as nice to yourself as you would your best friend and try and keep a possitive mind, I know it’s hard, but don’t forget you are amazing!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ 29 March

I have not been on here for awhile, because I been struggling. I will post about that tomorrow. I just needed to take a break and try and find myself back to why I started this blog as well as what is important to me. The post tomorrow will touch on things that have drained my energy.

But today its Monday and its time for a motivational post. I currently need it since I have a lot on my plate. Both things I need to do as well as things I want to do. Easter is soon here and I intend to take some of my free time and enjoy not doing anything.

Lately I been watching Tom Hanks movies and I remember a quote I read somewhere that he had said. I don’t know if its from one of his movies or just something that he has said in an interview or something like that. But I thought it was a fitting quote for today.

So as he says, never give up. Continue fighting, continue grinding. I know you can do it.

I wish you all an fantastic week and I will try and post more. I did not know how much I have missed it until I started with this post today.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ First of March

New week and a new month. I don’t know if you have this yet, but this weekend gave a real feeling of spring. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and the sky was so blue. It was beautiful and I spent a lot of time outside with the dogs. You could spring in the air and I know that we will have a few setbacks before spring is really here, but I thought about planting spring flowers and buying daffodils.

As you might know if you been reading my other posts, I am currently working on my master thesis. The subject of this thesis has been changed, but I am actually really excited about it. It will be more difficult, but I also think more rewarding. I am learning a lot and I am looking forward to doing this project. But at the same time my anxiety is making me question my decision. Am I good enough? Will I fail? Will my thesis be accepted? But I have made it this far and I am not going to stop. I am strong enough and I am not going to fail as long as I don’t give up.

This brings me to this weeks motivational quote. I do not know who has said this, but it’s something that I have heard in therapy as well from people online.

So keep trying and know that this makes you strong. And as long as you are trying and not giving up, then you are not failing. You are doing your best, and that is enough!

Now I need to go back to studying! Have an fantastic week!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ February 15

Monday again and I am having a rough time. I am having a lot of stress over my master thesis and that time just seems to be going so fast. I don’t really know where this last week has gone, but I guess it’s because I been reading a lot of academic articles and not done much more. I know doing this will take a lot of time and energy from me. As well as stress me out a lot, but in the end it will be worth it.

So todays motivational quote is not so much a quote as a prompt:

I am not quitting and neither should you. I can do this, and so can you. I believe in you!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ February 1st

Monday again and a whole new month. January is behind us. I think January has been hard for a lot of people and I think we still have some hard times ahead of us. It seems like Covid-19 is not going away anytime soon and I really hope everyone is taking care of them self and following the guidelines.

I also think we all need some motivation so here is this weeks motivational quote. I do not know the person who said this, but I felt it was something I needed to hear today.

I think we all have different challengers in out life and I have to admit that I kind of like to be challanged and do things that make me feel insecure. Because it makes me stronger as well as I know I have done something hard and come out on the other side. It is also important to remember that as long as you don’t give up you have not failed. So always keep trying.

Now I need to get some studying done. Have a wonderful week and take care of one another.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ January 25

First post of 2021, a bit late, but this year has been hectic so far. And I have kind of been in a bad headspace in the beginning of the year. My mental health has been down and I been fighting to keep my head over over water. My husband has been an amazing support to me these past weeks, like he always is, and he has helped me through a lot. I am feeling better, but know I have a way to go before I am on top again.

Last Monday I started a new term and now I am writing on my Masters Thesis together with another girl. We are only in the beginning of our writing but I think it will go good. Although is never bad to start Mondays of with some motivation, so here is the quote for this week.

I believe a lot in keeping a positive attitude and believing in yourself. I know its hard to do when you are depressed or when everything is going to hell. I been fighting depression for a lot of years, but I am still trying to always have a positive attitude and believe in myself. Because I know I can do it.

I hope you can believe in yourself as well, because I believe in you. You can do this!

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ December 21

It’s Monday again and only a few more days until Christmas. This month has been full of stress for me so I been trying to relax this weekend, but I have not been that successful because there are so much I want to get done.

I been trying to come up with a motivational quote for today, but I have not been able to do that. Because on thing that is stuck in my head is that a lot of people are struggling and having a hard time. Not only because it Christmas but because of the pandemic. They might be alone. They might not be able to spend Christmas with friends and family. That’s why I wanted to share this quote that I don’t actually know who has said, but that I think is important to remember. ALWAYS!

As I said, you don’t know what someone is going through. Be nice. Spread the love that the world needs right now. Be kind to one another. Smile at strangers. Help each other. Care about one another.

With this I wish you and amazing week and hope you all are health.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ December 7

It’s Monday again and I only have two more fully packed weeks of school. During that time I have two exams, two papers due and two presentations. As well as a couple of lectures and one digital study visit. I am feeling pretty overwhelmed, but I know I will get through this and that I will do my best. Which is everything I can do.

That is why this is todays motivational quote:

If you do your best that is really all you can do. Nobody is perfect and trying to be will wear you out. Just be yourself and do the best you can. It have to be enough and if somebody says something else. Well.. then they can do it themselves instead. Don’t let anybody bring you down.

I wish you all a amazing week.

Love, Nea

Motivational Monday ~ November 30

Happy Monday everybody! One day away from it to be December. I am starting to feel the Christmas cheer and this weekend it snowed a bit. Not much, but just enough for everything to be white. It is so beautiful outside and my husband and I put up some Strings of lights on our fence yesterday. It makes the snow glitter even more.

I know Christmas is not a fun time for everyone and that a lot of people feel stressed or/and overwelmed. All I can say is that Christmas do not need to be perfect. My best Christmases has been days where I been with my family and just enjoyed a quiet Christmas. I to can get stressed at times, but I try and take a deep breath and remind myself that life is not perfect and that what ever gets done gets done.

Todays motivational quote is one a friend said to me when I was having a rough time. She had read it somewhere online so I do not know where it comes from but it helped me. So I hope it can help somebody else.

You are stronger than you believe. Please remember that. And ask for help if you need it. It is nothing wrong with asking for help. I did it just last week. i was overwhelmed with my work for Uni and I just needed a break. So I got some help with the dogs at daytime by my father and my husband took on some more housework. And I am so grateful for this. They really helped me out.

Now I need to finish writing since I have a paper due today that needs some more work. I wish you all an amazing week!

Love, Nea
