Make Today a Great One

wherever you are

Sometimes you just need a little kick in the pants to get you going. That little burst of encouragement and positivity to fire you up and get you pumped up to start the day, meet your goals, and live your dream! (I mean - that's the whole point of the affirmation challenge, right?)

In that same way, I've started setting small reminders for myself. Every day at 10am I hear that little ding and know it's time. It's become a part of my daily ritual. A quick visit to The Daily Motivator. My break in the morning to just breathe and remind myself to bask in my own greatness, relax my mind, and maybe stop taking life so seriously. Instead, just to squeeze it tightly and say "Thank you, universe. You are pretty badass."

I've been saving a few of my favourites to share with you, but when I read today's it kind of hit me like a ton of bricks. I knew it would be the perfect way to kick off the weekend.

Life’s abundance comes to you continuously in great big, rich gobs of now. To experience the abundance, make full use of now.
The value of this moment is in the possibilities. To connect with the most value, work to fulfill the best possibilities.
Life is good to the degree that you give your attention and effort to it. This day is meaningful to the degree that you give your unique, creative and loving essence to living it fully.
It can be nice to remember the past and to dream about the future. Yet the time in which you actually live, in which you can make a real, positive difference, is now.
If you intend to make something happen, you must make the effort now. This, right now, is the time you have, so make full and effective use of it while it’s here.
Feel the goodness, love the beauty, fulfill the possibilities, now. The most powerful time in your life is now here, so make it count for something truly great.

Ahhh, didn't that feel good?! I needed that. Remember, make today a great one! Because you, my sweet friend, are pretty badass too.

What are some of your favourite inspirational quotes/sayings/passages? I would love for you to share some of them with me!


  1. Just started following your blog. Love it!

  2. I have so many!! I LOVE "punch today in the face" just because.. it's a great attitude to have! I also love "I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living". I'm LOVING your positivity recently - its fab!!

  3. Yup, wish I saw this earlier. I really need a kick in the head this morning. Maybe I'll come back and read this again tomorrow morning : )

  4. I visit The Daily Motivator every morning! ^_^

    Small quotes like those ones keep my feet on the ground, as well as a clear head. Also, I sometimes tend to get irritated by silly things that I shouldn't even be paying any attention too, so it helps to cool me down as well. :)

    1. I've been noticing a HUGE difference. It's nice to get some perspective from time to time, you know?

  5. I like this one: the more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.

    It's applicable to everything - from the little choices we make to the biggest one of all: to love yourself.

    LOVING your attitude these days around here!

  6. Lovely! Truly lovely.
