{monday's mantra}

It's been a while since I've had a mantra up for you on a Monday, but I thought it was a good time to bring it back. These silly little quotes really do help motivate me for the week, and I hope that you get something out of them too!
Whenever I get scared of life and the decisions I have to make to live this life, I try to remind myself of this. I won't get anywhere unless I do take that chance, unless I try something new. If I just keep going with the motions, and wait for something special to happen, it never will. I have too much potential to risk not taking that chance. We all have too much potential. 

It's getting to be time to take a big risk, maybe one of the biggest I've ever had to take, and it's terrifying. But I'm more afraid of not taking that risk. I'm a firm believer that life will work itself out. I hope that's true this time too. 

What's your mantra this week?

So true!!
I recently just had to take a big risk after "remaining tight in a bud" for soooo long! It IS terrifying!! But I feel like everything works out in the end :)

I have a feeling that I might have a hunch about what this risk is :) I hope I'm right and if I am I hope you take that risk because I know you have it in you!

oh I love that! so true for me right now, too. And I think I know what your risk is - so I'm going to email you!

I would take more risks if I could convince my husband that being broke is a financial plan! Hahaha. We do the world no good by being shrinking violets...

I love this quote! I know for me it's so difficult to take risks, but after awhile, you just have to. And things always work out in the end.

Things really do work out in the end! I'm definitely a worrier, but I try so hard to let it all go when it's something this important. Taking risks is hard for everyone, but you won't get anywhere fun in life unless you do :) xoxo

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

Haha, that's the most difficult part! I definitely have to do a lot of convincing with my husband...

Joelle :: Something Charming said...

I'm sure you do Jenna ;) I realized that it was probably really obvious what I'm planning on doing soon, I'm just not really to announce it to the world yet! It's definitely coming soon though, and I'm really excited! xoxo

So happy for you Candice! So glad things are working out for you, and that you were able to take the risk in the first place! Congrats my dear :) xoxo

love this!! nothing worth having comes easily, so it's worth it to face that fear :)

I have printed this so that I can view it every day as a reminder. Thank you for the beautiful words!

One reason we struggle w/ insecurity: we're comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else's highlight reel.

I love the Monday Mantras :) They become my computer or cellphone background every time you post a new one.

This is my favorite quote ever. I keep it everywhere in my apartment! Great mantra!
