When Monday Motivational Quotes Don’t Do The Trick… (battling with depression, anxiety and panic attacks)

al bundy giphy

So my little pandas, I’m going to try and talk about depression, panic/anxiety attacks in the lightest way possible. Key word being… try, because quite frankly I don’t want to get myself worked up again to the point where funny gifs won’t be able to do their job anymore.

It’s Okay, You Don’t Have To Settle…

 

Now that it’s officially summer, I’ve been seeing a lot of couples snuggling and holding sweaty hands together. Definitely more than usual. Maybe they chose the couple’s path because they wanted a partner to do fun summer things with. Or maybe they’re just tired of going to gatherings as that ‘single’ person, so they found another single person to be their indefinite plus one. Or perhaps it’s just that love is in the air and I haven’t gotten the memo.

I’d Rather be Too Much…

 

What’s being ‘too much’ of something and why is it a hindrance to most people? Is caring too much a problem? To some, yes. Is laughing too much an annoyance? Again to some, yes. And why do people cut you down with the phrase ‘You’re just too much’?

And of course to surround yourself with beautiful souls who bring out your comfortability to the max.

Dream. Believe. Create. Succeed.

dream succeed create

Ah quotes! A statement to live up to and create goals for. I’m not going to lie, I truly love a good ol’ quote like the rest of them. Sometimes they just encapsulate how you’re feeling in a sentence or two. Not to mention it kinda makes you feel like you aren’t the only one out there in this big ol’ world. If someone has created the quotes, that means that same someone would have felt like that at one point in time. It’s nice to feel a connection in that moment after you’ve read a touching, motivational quote. Some may console your sadness, while others lift you up to the heavens. I suppose this post will be a gentle ‘quote’ reminder to not forget your dreams.

10 Little Quotes To Help Keep Your Positivity Going….

Positivity

Oh pandas… it’s another week. How did that happen already?! Since it’s Monday, it’s therefore supposed to be the restart, re-energise, re-diet, re-motivation, re-something of the week. It’s the day where most, if not all of us, use as a fresh start. Right? I know I’m not the only one. However today, for me, was pretty difficult. It was hard to stay positive. To get that hashtag Monday Motivation thing going. Lately, it seems that I haven’t been keeping my positivity pants on. I let it slip. And to be honest, once you let it slip, it’s hard to catch yourself before you fall back down to the very hard cold floor of negativity. The thing is, I try very hard every day to stay positive. It has helped with my panic attacks, my mind, my health and my emotions. So even though today was a hard day to get my body and mind moving, I did it nonetheless.

Motivational Monday

Best-inspirational-motivational-life-quotes-to-live-by-365-quotes-of-tumblr-10

I’m sure you’re probably wondering why in unicorn poop did I pick this motivational quote to see you off for the rest of the week. Well… I figured this time I was going to be a bit more realistic. Meaning, and forgive me for being blunt, not all your hard work will pay off. Sometimes it will and other times it won’t. You just have to work the cards you’ve been dealt. It doesn’t mean you’re not going to succeed. It just means it might take a little longer to get there. Some times there will be days where you will feel knocked down. Like they’ve taken your last breath. But hang in there. Keep pushing through it. You will eventually see that not only are you stronger than what you thought but you will know how to conquer anything.

So my dear Pandas… This week let’s all try and be the windshield.

❤ ❤ ❤

P.S.- Wishing you guys a very happy week!

Monday Motivation: Do What You Love

Do what you love quote

Hello my beautiful pandas. I hope it’s a somewhat decent Monday for you today. This morning must have been a pretty tough one, knowing most of us are still reeling from everything that’s happening around the world. So today I didn’t want to yap on about things. I simply wanted to do a tiny Motivational post.

Happy Friday Pandas

Happy Friday... Friday feelingI know some of you are freaking out because today happens to be the 13th which also happens to fall on a Friday. Yikes, Friday the 13th! To most of you out there it’s considered the worst day ever. I mean the worst day since the beginning of time. But I think we need to stop putting so much stock into these things.

This Week’s Mission: Taking Some ‘You’ Time…

You time

Well, my dear fluffy pandas, another weekend has come and gone. Sunday’s are always a bit of a drag aren’t they? It’s a mixture of emotions. In the morning you’re happy because you realise you have one more day to relax, while the evening seems like a countdown to dooms day Monday. Okay maybe that’s a bit much. But as you know from my previous Sunday posts (here, here and here. There’s more but I restrained myself) that I am not a super fan of this particular day. I tend to reflex, mope and then look to the week ahead in a somewhat positive light. The only reason why I do the latter  is so as it reduces the chances of me making up an excuse to call in sick on Monday.

The Thing About Beauty…

Beauty and how we internalise it

Doesn’t this hit home? The discussion of beauty is a pretty extensive one. We want to be it, talk about it, love it, and conquer it. We truly are a world that reveres looks. Sometimes we are so obsessed that if we aren’t up to par with the rest, it will inevitably create even more insecurities within us. And therein lies the problem.

Optimism: Think Cha Cha…

87ef4bb5285651aac583cf360568816f

Since it’s the beginning of the week and I officially want to crawl back into my bed and die, I decided that a nice optimistic quote would do just the trick for Motivation Monday.

I know some of you are thinking phooey fiddle fuddle on optimism (I totally went Yosemite Sam just then, please tell me you know who I’m talking about?!)  but let me tell you, sometimes, it’s the only thing that keeps you moving. It’s the knowing that a ‘What If’ question might bring a ‘hell yes’ answer. It’s relying on hope to get you through and it’s the knowledge learned to accept that things may not be smooth sailing but you will prevail nonetheless.  Sure you might get knocked back once, twice, hell, even ten times. But you know that even despite these unfortunate obstacles you will get to the other side as fresh as a daisy. What does that even mean by the way? I know what it means, but why is it fresh as a daisy? Are daisies the Energizer bunnies of the plant world. Are they the Richard Simmons of photosynthesis? Okay, okay, I digress as always. But if you know, please help this panda out.

Either way, this week, we are going to be the most optimistic pandas ever. But for the love of skittles don’t go overboard with the positivity. No one wants a gushing Care Bear 24 hours a day. You will look a little cuckoo. Just know that things will always work out. Beam the optimism from the inside. It will always get you to where you need to be.

Peace, Love and Cha Cha
