An Update + Things That Motivate Me

 *Drum Roll Please*
We have finally moved into our new house!!! Yes, the one we did all the Renovations to this past Summer. I absolutely love the new house to pieces. Sure, we've had a few bumps in the road...the air conditioning conked out on us 3 days after we moved in and then once that was fixed the electricity decided to turn off in 2 of the bedrooms {doesn't that sound like a fun first week in a new house? heck to the noooooo}. But I guess these kind of things are to be expected moving into a pre-loved house.

Ya know what helped me keep my cool through all this shenanigans? A positive state of mind. I know, it sounds a tad cheesy. But things that motivate me to keep this mind set going includes things like the positive posts on The Nectar Collective Blog, the quotes I come across on Pinterest, and the wall behind my desk {I will get to this}! Even if you're not changing addresses like me, everyone has those annoying days like those dreaded Mondays or forever-long Thursdays, {or maybe there just long to me?} everyone could use a positive pick me up.

Quotes That Motivate Me...

One of my daily motivators are the little quotes, pictures, and mementos hanging around my desk. One thing in particular is a photograph of Flagler College, pinned to my bulletin board. It is my absolute dream, to attend College there. When I'm doing homework and working my butt of at my desk, I get stuck or frustrated sometimes at all the work to be done and what seems like such a long road until graduation. Looking up at that picture and thinking about College, motivates me to keep pushing forward and to not give up. Which goes exactly with one of my favorite quotes posted above "Dreams Don't Work Unless You Do", who ever said that was spot on.

 What motivates and inspires you?
