Mug-spiration Monday *Vol 2*

Monday, June 22, 2015

It's Monday again. It's time for a fresh start- fun projects, new ideas and a positive outlook- no matter what your week may hold. That's what Mondays are for; not this hum-drum, tail-between-our-legs attitude that we usually have about Mondays. Nope. That's not allowed anymore!

How was your week? If the weather is anything in your area like it is in mine, you are roasting. I'm talkin' sweat-dripping, clothes-soaked, roasting! And unfortunately, it's been rainy almost everyday when I've gotten off of work, so I haven't been to the pool in a while. My white self could really use some sun ;)

Despite my unfortunate lack of pool water and over-abundance of sweat, I am excited for a new week! I am thankful for what it holds, and I am ready for our trip to Charlotte to look at Taylor's seminary and search for houses. I am thankful that Taylor and I get to share our life in the smallest and largest ways, and I am thankful for a family (biological and by marriage) who loves us and cares for us. We are blessed.

I am thankful for those things every day, but since Mondays are for fresh starts, why not think of all the things we are thankful for? It couldn't hurt, right?

Need a little boost? Not feeling the Monday excitement? Try counting your blessings. Try thanking God. And check out my Monday inspirations below. I sincerely hope they will motivate you.
