Motivation Monday: Stop Dreaming Start Living


Motivation Monday: Stop dreaming  Start Living – Hey everyone! I hope you’re all well and feeling ready for the new week ahead.

I’m back with another Motivation Monday post and I have to say, they’re getting quite popular with many emails and tweets from you guys all waiting for the next one so – thank YOU!!! 🙂

Motivation Monday: Stop Dreaming Start Living – Start Now

It’s easy to dream and think about what you life could be but what are you actually doing about it!?

Are you getting yourself out there, meeting new people and chasing your dreams!?

I know – with daily-life and stress you can easily get ‘stuck’ into a routine, doing the same things day-in and day-out BUT if there’s something that you want to do, you have to make a change, push yourself!

Stop dreaming, start living – NOW!

Motivation Monday: Stop Dreaming  Start Living – But How?

Like I always say, it’s easy for me to sit here and type away – telling you what to do but think about it for a minute….!

If I can sit here and type away, doing what I love every single day – why can’t you?

I always look at myself and think, “If I can do it – anyone can” and it’s true!

Life has no limits, it’s up to each and every one of us to do what we love, follow our dreams and make life work for us, the way we want it to.

Motivation Monday: Stop Dreaming Start Living – Is it that easy!?

No, it isn’t – but life isn’t easy anyway! 🙂

I spend hours writing my posts, editing photos, replying to emails, attending events and doing what I love because I enjoy it….

Sure, there’s days when I want to sit at home and do nothing, there’s days when I want to throw my MacBook in the bin and there’s days when I get so stressed out that I just want to run away!!

BUT in the end, I realise that this is the only thing that allows me to express myself in no other way, I feel happy, I feel content and I’m living my dream and doing a ‘job’ that I absolutely love!

Motivation Monday: Stop Dreaming Start Living – Just Do It

Instead of dreaming, it’s time to start following your dreams.

Don’t let your life go by, you’ll end up looking back and regretting the chances you didn’t take – life is too short to be unhappy, to feel stressed and to not be doing what you love.

Life is beautiful, there’s no limits and you CAN achieve everything that you want – the only thing that’s stopping you, is you!

So, stop dreaming start living – take little steps in the right direction and everything will start falling into place.

If I can do it, anyone can do it too! 🙂

    I totally agree, living your life and following your dreams are top priority for me these days. I was always on the go, then I got hit with a scary disease, and that’s when it all made sense…you can’t wait for tomorrow, it may never come! xo

    Wise words Layla, life is too short and as I once read.. ‘life is not a dress rehearsal’! This was a perfectly timed post considering it’s now the start of a brand new, fresh week 🙂 Have a brilliant (and productive!) week…

    It is easier said than done, but you’re right, Layla. We have to start living and striving for the best. I think sometimes it is fear that holds people hostage, especially when they have experienced multiple failure before.
    Have a blessed week, beautiful. 🙂

    I love your motivational post! I think the biggest problem at achieving things is that if we don’t get results right away, we give up to fast.

    Thx for stopping by. Have a great week and stay positive!
