Hello my loves,
This week’s Monday Morning Motivation Mail was themed around forgiveness, and because this theme is very dear to my heart this week, I have decided to write a post on it.
There’s a quote that I really love, it’s from one of my favorite movies called, “Georgia Rule” and it goes like this, “To forgive is to move forward, Georgia rule”.
I believe that to forgive is to move forward, but also to forgive is to love. For when we don’t forgive and we hold anger within us, we are unable to fully move forward and experience all the world has to offer when we choose love. It takes just as much energy to choose to love as it does to choose to hate…its still just a choice.
In September 2015, I discovered this incredible book called Fire In the Heart by: Deepak Chopra. For many years it has been sitting on my bookshelf and for some reason, up until recently, I didn’t think much of it. Probably, because for many years, I was very focused on my book addictions such as, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Twilight.
In all seriousness though, I have been a big fan of every and all self help book in existence; so it was surprising to me that I hadn’t yet covered this one.
Hello my loves,
Everything I listen to (on a regular basis) is happy. I refuse to listen to anything else because music is the easiest way to control your mood. It can be super hard to snap out of a sad mood and become happy; so music is the first thing I turn to when I feel down.
I think its very important for everyone to have a “Go-To Happy Playlist” on hand for when a little extra motivation is needed. Find 5-10 songs that really resonate with you and get you into a joyous mood. Combine them into a playlist and call it, “My Happy Songs”. Then commit to listening to it whenever you feel down, annoyed or just a little bit off track. You will be surprised by how fast your mood will have changed after that 5th song.
In case your mind is blank and you can’t think of any songs, I’ve decided to share my playlist. So below you will find my go-to happy songs. I hope this inspires you to create your own and to take control of your emotions.
