Beautiful Sunday # 10 - Uplift


I'm making this post early Sunday morning. This is quite unusual for me because my weekend routine starts by spoiling myself of excessive sleeping hours. I rarely receive eight hours of sleep during the work week so I compensate myself on these two short days. When someone forces me to get up early on weekends, I declare World War III then :D After which, it will take a lifetime for us to get along well again :D

This weekend was different though. I woke up early ON MY OWN. History of histories, I had the courage to leave bed so early. To which I realized, I don't feel bad after all. Perhaps, if I'll do this over the next weekends somethings will change. I'll be able to accomplish more things and my outlook for the day will change. Perhaps the positive vibes can extend to the entire work week.  Let's see how this will work for me.

Talking about positive outlook and vibes, the past days have not been so good for me. Something really upset me at work. A few days later, I found myself feeling melancholy.... Sadness has been plaguing me but in God's grace, I would like to believe that I'm able to battle everything. As they say, everyone needs to be stronger than their own life's monsters. As for me, the sadness, anxieties and all those worries form the monsters that have been testing and making me stronger over the past years.

Anyway, in times like this I'd rather focus my attention to things that can motivate and inspire me. I found some quotes that captured my spirits that has been hungry for upliftment

  1. Wow, I love these quotes, and I can tell you that I needed them today, my friend. We have had a stressful week, too, with a broken down car, sick parents, no internet (which means that Trip can't work from home when he needs to) and grouchy teenagers.

    Thanks for hosting!

  3. Hi Diane. We were matched up for Christmas in July. I sent you an email on the 26th and I haven't heard from you, so I'm just checking to make sure that you got it.

    I read this week that making your bed every morning will make you more productive for the rest of the day. It sounds like a good idea, but I've been too lazy to start trying it :)

    I'm sure things will look much brighter for you this week. We all have our good/bad weeks. It's important not to dwell on the bad for too long. Go ahead and
    spoil yourself once in a while! Give yourself a treat for handling your
    situation so well :)
    best wishes,

  13. Oh Diane life is so hard at times. I can let the pressures of life get to me to. Know you are not along and many folks go through the same things. Like I tell my kids, "Life is messy. You just have to accept that." I hope they are listening.
