Motivational Quotes When You Need a Little Push

Motivational Quotes

We all need a little push sometimes. And lately, I’ve needed a big push. I’m not sure what’s going on with me. Actually, I do. Starting the new year sick really threw me off my game, and I’ve been playing catch up since. I love order and schedules, so not really being on a schedule has really been difficult for me. And playing catch up is exhausting and overwhelming. When trying to get back on track, there are few ways I pump myself up to get back on track, reading or listening to a self-development/business podcast is usually my go-to. But sometimes I come across motivational quotes that get me all the way together. So, I wanted to share with you all a few motivational quotes by some amazing Black women (it is Black History Month after all) that will get you back on track and ready to take over the world.

Monday Motivation: Don’t Stop! This is Only The Beginning

beginning

I’ve been thinking a lot about the New Year and how often this can be a discouraging time, especially if you have big goals. It’s easy to feel like you aren’t doing enough. Sometimes it is difficult to see how your day to day actions impact your larger goals. We know we should be doing these small things. Sending the emails. Doing the research. Creating the content. But when results aren’t immediately seen, some people like to turn around or throw in the towel. I just want us to keep going. To not expect every day to be filled with big breaks, and for us to honor the small things that help us achieve our big goals.

The Key to Self-Improvement

SELF-IMPROVEMENT

Happy New Year! I pray 2018 is starting off wonderful for everyone. I know that if you are reading this you are an ambitious goal setter, which means that you are more than likely working on how to make 2018 amazing.  There are tons of things we can do to make sure that we are successful in the new year, but  I believe the one thing that is essential to our success is self-reflection. How can we grow into the person we want to be if we never reflect on who we currently are? So, for me the key to growth and self-improvement is self-reflection.

cleanse
Fresh start. Clean slate. New Beginnings.

In the New Year, lots of people are looking to leave the old behind and start anew. Rather it is a spiritual, health or mental cleanse, I think it’s a great to complete a cleanse in order to go into the New Year lighter and focused. For me, a cleanse shows me how strong I truly am. I completed THIS juice fast once and felt like a boss after those 3 days were over. I was ready to take over the world. And isn’t that how you want to feel at the top of the year….like a boss.

Self-Care Starter Kit: 5 Self-Care Essentials

Self-Care

For many of us, self-care seems selfish. How dare we take a time out of our day for ourselves. This is especially hard if we have spent the majority of our lives caring for others. We often think that things just won’t get done if we take a break. But sometimes we need to take a break to make sure things are doing to the best of our abilities. It’s very easy to neglect ourselves, but I think it’s important that we take time daily to make sure that we are loving to ourselves…even if it’s just a few minutes.

5 Ways to Fall in Love With Yourself

From Black love to romantic love, love is everywhere during the month of February. However, self-love is often forgotten. Practicing self-love is not simply about putting on makeup or marveling at yourself in the mirror, but, for me, self-love is about caring and loving yourself enough to actively practice behaviors that have a positive impact on your life. It’s all about being mindful of what you think, do and say and how those things positively or negatively impact your life.

THREE WAYS TO PRACTICE BETTER SELF-CARE IN 2017

I think we can all admit that sometimes with the hustle and bustle of life we can forget to take care of ourselves. We can get so caught up in doing for others that doing things for ourselves may seem selfish. The realities of work, motherhood or entrepreneurship start to consume the little free time we do have. Here’s the thing though, we need me time. We need time to relax and fill ourselves up. Like the saying goes, we cannot pour from an empty cup. We have to be 100 percent in order to show up as the best version of ourselves. I want my family and friends to get the full-Jenell, not the one who is giving and loving out of a deficit. So, just like we schedule in meetings and events, it’s important that we are scheduling in me time and doing things our bodies and minds NEED to feel recharged and ready to take on the world like a BOSS.
