Mug-spiration Monday *Volume 14*

Monday, September 28, 2015

Good morning (or afternoon, or evening, depending on where you are)! How are you today? I hope well! I'm sitting here drinking pumpkin coffee as I type. If you haven't had coffee yet, then go get it! Coffee is important! ;)

This weekend was wonderful. We had some Waynesville friends come spend the weekend with us, which was so nice! We haven't had a lot of human interaction outside of work and school since we moved to Charlotte, so having friends over was needed.

But one thing is for sure: I'm exhausted. I don't feel like doing anything. The past few nights I've had really stressful dreams and I've woken up feeling just as tired as I did the night before.

On days like these, we really do just have to push ahead. We have jobs to do, lives to impact, and talents to share. I personally have a baby to take care of while her parents are at work. I make a difference by showing her love and helping her develop as a little human. And whatever you do for a living is important too. You have something to give to the world, but to share it, you have to get up and get going.

It's hard on days like these, but remember why you get up. I get up because I want to share Christ with the world. That makes it a whole lot easier!

But if you still  need a little boost, here are a few "mug-spirations" for your day :)

Monday Inspirations

Spiritual Inspiration- My mom just sent me this. I haven't read it yet, but it sounds like a good, needed post :)

Work Inspiration- If you work hard now, you will be making things a reality while others are still dreaming.

Creative Inspiration- Creative people are...

Hopefully, you are feeling a bit more motivated now. Have a good day, dear friends. Keep moving, even when you don't feel like it!


  1. Loved this -- thanks for the inspiration, Kristin!

  2. This is so inspirational. I love the part about knowing your "why" for getting up and getting up to share Christ. Beautifully written!

    1. Thanks, Dani! It's so true. If we don't know why we get out of bed, then what's really the point? haha

  3. I have a Motivation Monday link party every week. Would love you to participate next week.
