#MondayMotivation: Show up
Show up! It’s a message I know I need to hear on days like today: Monday.
Monday often gets a bad wrap. Everyone hates Monday. We’re tired, we’re demoralized. Sometimes we forget the hardest part of the battle is just showing up. Once we’re there and open ourselves up to the possibilities, we are in the game.
As I writer, I work from home. A lot of days all that is required of me to show up is to walk the short distance from my bedroom to my desk (Or some days, my living room couch). When I take shortcuts (Like staying in my pajamas.) my performance suffers.
That’s why I embrace the whole phrase. Walking through the stages is a preparation. Get up. Dress up…and show up. It’s that order that prepares us to never give up.
