Monday Mantra: 5 Inspirational Quotes to Start Your Week

Today’s Monday motivation comes from my own struggles, my own indecision, and my own pain. Like me, you no doubt have gone, are going, or will go through some painful things in your life.

What you feed your mind in these times of hurt makes all the difference. What you put in is what you will put out.

If you listen to songs or watch vidoes that make you sad, how do you think this will make you feel for the rest of the day? The rest of the week even? I’ve fallen victim to that trap a hundred times, and have realized the importance of replacing this negative input with something positive.

So, here is short list of quotes, verses, and thoughts that have helped me create my own sunshine in life’s rain, and I hope they help you too:

  1. Choose happy.
  2. “Be kind and polite and the world will go right.” – Paddington
  3. “Faith, it does not make things easy it makes them possible.” – Luke 1:37
  4. “Kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul.” – Proverbs 16:24
  5. “Whatever you are, be a good one.” – Abraham Lincoln

If you’d like an extra dose of peace, there’s this meditation video I found on YouTube by Positively Britt that you can click on here. You don’t have to be seated on a yoga mat or anything; I simply play it when doing homework.

(By the way, most of these came from Pinterest. What really helps me is if I just type “bible quotes” or “inspirational quotes” into the search bar, that way you can really get flooded with uplifting messages as you scroll.)

I wish you a blessed week my friend, one devoid of worry or fear. P.s. for those of you curious about my recent career decision, I will be doing a post about the whole decision-making process involved here soon! Thank you for reading dear dreamer. You are beautiful and you are loved ❀︎

  1. β€œWhatever you are, be a good one.” That’s a good quote, Abe! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ These are all lovely bits of inspiration – I’m constantly getting trapped in the motivational side of Pinterest lol, I find its inspiration sooo uplifting! (Which is why I have so many quote boards, hah) And I know what you mean about what we surround ourselves with affecting our mood – I have to be careful about that, or else I find myself feeling poorly! It’s good to be around positive things (:

      Hehe, Abe knew what he was talking about πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ Even Pinterest can have it’s dark side, but I too get addicted by its uplifting side 😊 That’s one of the things I’m most looking forward to about living on campus for the first time in the Fall, as sad as it sounds: being away from my family. I am “blooming where I’m planted” so to speak and trying to make the most out of every day, but my family is so negative that it will be spiritually enriching to be out of their range of influence πŸ’•

      1. (Awww it was my pleasure! I realized last night that I’d missed reading so many posts of yours, so I went through and binge-read your blog, haha xD)

        Yeah it can, but I do love the inspiration it has! I’m really hoping and praying life on campus goes well for you – I’m sure it will be extremely rewarding, through all the ups and downs. The Lord will always be by your side! ❀
