Good morning all! I hope you’re starting your week with warm sunshine like we are? What another wonderful weekend it has been! We have at last tackled our garden and it is, once again, looking neat and tidy. We’re not big gardeners and just about manage our twice yearly clean up but I have a picture of an amazing garden in my head that I would love, one day, to make a reality. We did also manage to purchase a tree to plant over the grave of our much loved dog Polly who died last year. It’s been something we’ve been planning to do since she died but just weren’t 100% sure what we wanted. We decided on a flowering cherry as it will bring some much needed colour and happiness to our otherwise very plain garden. I can’t wait for it to flower next year!
As the title of today’s Monday Motivation suggests, it’s time for a change. I’ve talked about my fear of change a few times in my Monday Motivation posts but this time it’s a change I am instigating myself in order to preserve the life of this blog. I’m afraid this is the last Monday Motivation post for a while. As much as I really enjoy writing these posts and helping get everyone’s week off to a good start they are making me lazy. The blog is fast becoming Monday Motivation and nothing else. My promise to myself when I started taking the blog a bit more seriously was that I would write at least one post a week and Monday Motivation has enabled me to do that but as it ticks the ‘one post a week’ box I am often lazy and don’t bother writing anything else. I have lots of ideas of other things I would like to write about that fit into my ‘family and lifestyle’ niche and I need to challenge myself to pull my finger out and actually write them!
I’ve had lots of lovely comments and feedback on my Monday Motivation posts and I really hope they have motivated some of you to get through the week with a positive state of mind. I will be continuing my Monday Motivation quotes on my Instagram so if you’re not following me, now would be a great time to do that! Sometimes you need to change in order to get better and I think it’s about time for that. I need a new writing challenge and a new focus and I want my blog to be a place where I challenge my skills and write about things that I’m passionate about. It would be far easier for me to carry on writing these posts every Monday, but life isn’t about always taking the easy option. Starting this blog was as much about my own personal growth as anything else I think it important not to always sit in your comfort zone but to remember to try out new things.
So I hope, if you’re a regular reader of these posts, you will stick with me and will enjoy a plethora of new and interesting posts. I will still commit to posting at least once a week, although I’m not sure if that will always be the same day…time will tell! As the quote states we shouldn’t be afraid of change, we may lose something good, but may get something even better!
