Monday Motivation - I am committed to staying the course, even when the journey becomes challenging.

Published 3 months ago • 2 min read

Happy Monday Reader!

Would you like to work fewer hours in your biz this year (without sacrificing any income!) and get back to loving your business and life again? Schedule a free chat to see how I can help!

Oh snap, it's April today!

That means it's the start of a new quarter, AND taxes are due soon!

Did this come out of (seemingly) nowhere for you too? Last week was spring break for my husband and we took a short trip to Omaha, NE, so I'm still catching up. We had a lovely time and I'm glad we did it, but coming back from vacation can be so hard!

For our household, it's feeling hard to get back into the normal swing of things. To return to the day to day slog of work and life maintenance (my new catch all term for household chores, adult tasks like paying bills, and basic personal maintenance like showering--all of which takes time and isn't even fun!)

To help us recommit to our "real" life this week, our affirmation is:

"I am committed to staying the course, even when the journey becomes challenging."

What journey has become challenging for you lately?

Did you have any first quarter goals you let taper off as we got further into the year?

Did you struggle with consistency around a new habit or business process?

Whatever it was, take a moment now to acknowledge where you were successful.

I recently hired a new coach, and she's been gently encouraging me to focus on what I actually did (however small it may be) instead of on where I failed to follow through.

The universe is conspiring to get that message through my head because I also recently saw a similar message on social media: If beating yourself up worked, it would have worked by now. 🤯

Mind blown, right?!

The past has passed and we can't change it now, so let's use this week's affirmation to recommit to ourselves and our goals by repeating 21x every day:

"I am committed to staying the course, even when the journey becomes challenging."

Because the only way out is through. And the alternatives are worse. ❤️


As always, affirmations work best when you truly believe them. They need to resonate with you and feel achievable. So feel free to modify any I suggest, or develop entirely new ones!

Say them as long as you want. I'm sharing a new affirmation each week, but that doesn't mean you have to switch it up each week unless it feels right. You can add new ones as often as you want and have as many as you want. You can say a different affirmation every day, or at different times of the day. You choose!

I'd love to hear the impact it has! (But if you decide affirmations are not for you, click here to be removed from this weekly email.)

I hope this affirmation sets you up for a kick ass week and I'll see you next Monday for a new one to try!

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I realized something that I'd rather hide from you. It's one of my biggest fears, and I can barely believe I am going to write it out in an email, sent via the internet, which has the potential to be around forever. But here goes. I realized I'm a hypocrite. Ugh, I hate typing that out! I try my hardest to stay vigilant against this tendency, because it's one of the things I judge the most in others. But suddenly I realized that in all the times I internally...

Happy Monday Reader! Again and again, women tell me they feel guilty for how they spent their time. Time-related guilt typically comes up when we are doing one thing but worry we should be doing something else, whether that was spending time with family, doing maintenance around the house, or especially when we take time for ourselves. If you identify with this struggle, this week's affirmation will help! "I can be trusted to make the right decision on how to spend my time." When our...
