Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY:  “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: I hope that in 2019 you can find some hope.  I hope that in 2019 you can find community.  I hope that in 2019 you can make new friends and strengthen your own support network.  In 2019 I hope that you can find love and that you can love yourself.  Because in the end, it’s all about love.

AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY:

1) I love those around me and I love myself
2) I happily give and receive love each day.
3) Each day I am so grateful for how loved I am and how much people care about me.

I just want to take a minute to say I sincerely thank you for your love and support for Matt’s Motivational Monday in 2018.  It was a new thing I tried out of the abundance of my heart and out of something I thought I was supposed to do.  I hope you found it helpful in your lives in some small way.

Happy New Year to all you amazing people. Thanks again.  I love you all.

SHINE YOUR LIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE IN 2019!

Merry Christmas!

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Don’t play small.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
I think that if there is anything in your life that you think you were meant to do, any dream or goal you have for your life and you are not going after it, and you are not making small steps towards, then every day you don’t do that, you are selling yourself short.

Don’t play small.

If you have a goal or a vision, go do it.  Do something about it today right now.  Because maybe you are the person that needs to get that thing done.

Don’t play small.

I mean if you have a purpose in this life, if your heart is beating then go out and do that thing.  Listen, life is short and goes by way too fast to be wasting on just existing or just getting through the day.

Don’t play small.

Maybe someone is watching you and waiting for you to do that thing so that they can go do that thing.

Don’t play small.

Here are some goal races I am doing in 2019.

3M Half Marathon – January 20th
Lifetime Fitness Indoor Tri – January 27th – COME JOIN ME!

Over the past year, I have been doing Camp Gladiator and Camp Gladiator has some free codes to get camp for free for the month of January.  But you can start now if you want.  I have free codes.  Let me know if you would like one to try out a great workout for free with great trainers and to make some new friends.  Camp Gladiator has helped me get into the best shape of my life.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

~ Wayne Dyer
AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 

1) Success is internal. Not external.
2) Pursuit is everything. Enjoy the journey.
3) We need not so much more answers, but rather, more imagination.

Happy MONDAY! TGIM!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Your only limit is you.  

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You never know what someone is going through so give someone a high five or a hug today.  Or give someone you have been thinking about a call.  It’s the holidays and this can be a hard time for many people.  Let’s celebrate that we get to live life together with our friends and family this season.

Let’s continue our habits.  Let’s do some awesome things.  I am training for a half marathon on January 20th and also training for a mini indoor TRI at the same time on January 27th.  Fun times ahead.  Let’s get some goals together and crush them.

AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY: 

These affirmations are from a meditation I listened to on insight timer,  which I highly recommended you check out.

1) Today is a gift I cherish
2) I accept my flaws as part of my beauty
3) Today I will nourish and love my body by feeding it healthy foods.
