Monday Mantra

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Mondays are a win-lose situation: you have to go back to all the responsibilities you probably abandoned over the weekend, but you get the chance to start over.

Each week I hope to share my weekly intention with you. We’ll call it a Monday Mantra. #MondayMantra on Instagram is a fun place to look if you need something to help inspire you during the week.

This week’s mantra:

This mantra is inspired by the quote, ” A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”

I can’t track down who said this, but they’re a genius. I simplified it to “just bloom” so it would be a quick reminder whenever I need it.

Just bloom has been my mantra for quite a bit now. I think of it in class where it seems like everyone has their life together except for me. It’s a great reminder when I’m in a yoga class and the person next to me floats into a handstand with ease and I REALLY need a child’s pose.

It applies to everything and has made me more mindful of how I act in various situations.

So here’s my challenge for you: just bloom. Do your thing regardless of what everyone else is doing. Your path doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s! Maybe today’s not your day to hop into handstand or know everything there is to know about Organic Chemistry, but keep doing your thing and see where it takes you.

You’re amazing and totally capable of accomplishing your dreams. Take your own path there!
