5 Inspiring Sayings Motivating Me For The Week Ahead #MummyMondays

To say that the past few weeks have been full on would be an understatement. I’m well overdue for a break, but something just keeps egging me on. When I’m finding things tough, I always seek inspiring sayings or insights to promoteĀ positive thinking. If I don’t do this, I tend to get caught up in the same cycle of negative thinking. I find that thinking outside the box and taking on a different perspective always helps. Here are a few of the sayings that have positively impacted me. I especially like the first one because it’s really helped with my journey thus far.

    I’m loving these Eva. I’ve had a very full on few weeks too, so can totally relate when you mention feeling like a break. I’m constantly daydreaming about holidays! Hang in there this week.

    hope you start to slow down soon. Recently I spotted a quote that has rocked my world “don’t overthink”, so simple, and yet so easy to forget

    Love that first quote/image Eva. It’s perfect for where I am at in my life right now. I hope the pace slows down for you and you can take a breather. As for me, it’s full steam ahead. No sign of life getting slower around here.

    Love these quotes Eva. They are certainly uplifting! Great thoughts to pass onto my kids too.

    Love all of these. I’m in the process of doing a motivational wall in my office, as I’m undertaking a 12 month business diploma and have been looking for inspirational quotes to add. Just perfect.

    I’ve just realised that every one links up here as well as with Kirsty, so here I am. I’m a bit slow. Oops. Hope that’s OK. I love those quotes. I haven’t got anything eloquent to add beyond the old just keep swimming! Hope your week gets better. xo

    I love the quote above about never listing but instead either winning or learning! So true and a great perspective to have!

    Been a few of those weeks here too! Hope your next week slows down and you get some time out. I love Cate’s comment above of “don’t overthink”. I think I need to have that stuck on my fridge! My favourite saying (but its not really an inspirational one) is “chocolate is to women, as duct tape is to men. It fixes everything” Although the saying that has been more realistic in our household has been “there is a time and a place for wine. In my hand, and now”…

    I love these! sorry i missed th party, school holidays throw me into a tail-spin – so your motivation/ inspirational post is very timely indeed. If you pop over to mine – you’ll see from my first image where I’m going wrong. I’ll have to print some of yours to help me change gears.
    thanks so much
