Mid-Morning Motivation

Hey there !

Do you ever have days where you're just feeling a lil bit rubbishy like you lost a bit of your sparkle ? I definitely have these days a lot and i used to take the opportunity to be sad all day and just have a wasted day for no real reason. But I do not like wasting days. I like to be productive , full of good energy and have that bit of sparkle that makes the day seem brighter. So me and my friend started doing something we call Mid-Morning Motivation.

Whenever one of us has woken up and is feeling pretty rubbish for no particular reason or is just having a difficult morning, we go through Pinterest to look for uplifting quotes and motivation that we then send to whoever is having a difficult day at about 11am as a little surprise to lift there spirits :)

It takes less than five minutes and even just knowing that someone cares enough to send you something just to send you something just to make you smile, might be enough to pick them ( and their day ) back up !

Here's a few examples that you could use that I've made myself : 





I do this for my friends regularly so from now on I'll be posting the Mid-Morning Motivation onto my twitter for anybody else who needs that extra boost in the morning !

What do you think ? And what quotes motivate you ?

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx

  1. Yes, yes, yes, yes! This is perfect! <3 I had friends several years a go when I was going through so much text me things like what they liked about what I was wearing or something that made them smile about me. It really made me aware of how something so small can mean so much and uplift your spirits! Bloody fantastic idea Marianne! <3

  3. This is such a nice idea! I love it. I am sure your friends really appreciate it :)
    I love this one quote these quotes: "Go all or go home", "Do it. Sometimes later becomes never.", "Stop wishing, start doing" and "What are you looking for isn't out there, it's in you..." :)

    1. I always love it when they send me these and I've always tried to make it so if somebody does something for me that makes me smile, then surely if it makes me smile it will make somebody else smile . Then I try to do the same thing or something similar for another person when they're having a rough time :) I love the " Stop wishing, start doing" quote, it's something I've really been trying to implement into 2016 :)

  4. Wow, this actually really helped me! I go through days like that a lot, especially as I don't feel well a lot and the only thing I want to do is wallow c': this is a great way of combating it, when I can manage it - one of my favourite quotes is 'there is no all or nothing, everything you can do counts a little bit' :D xx

    1. I'm so so happy to hear that :) I understand that it's awful on those days and I hope there are a lot less of those days for you in 2016 , I've found that doing something small like this and knowing you've made someone feel good is often a great way to raise your spirits enough to at least give yourself a smile, which i know is valuable on those days :)

      P.s. What a lovely quote :)

  5. 'be so good they can't ignore you' this is one of my favourite quotes ever! I always remind myself of it when I do something new, or go somewhere I'm not known and the reaction isn't terribly positive or like no-one expects much of you. I love that quote and the others too x Thanks for brightening up my friday x

    1. It's short, simple and sweet ( a little bit like me haha , no I'm just joking ;) ) I do love that quote though, it always brings me a lot of motivation :) I hope you're having a brilliant week !

  6. This is the sweetest idea! Nothing better than having someone let you know they care about you and that they're actively thinking about you by sending a lovely quote. I think I definitely need to get in on this with my friends as well!
    Great idea, Marianne!

    1. Thank you, I just love the idea that something so simple and easy could brighten up someone's day and give them the push they need, when you think about how much people appreciate it and how quick it is to do it feels silly not to :)

  9. What a great idea! I really like it, it's very creative!
    Yeah I get what you mean. When you sit around wasting a day because you dont feel motivated and good, that just adds to it and makes another reason to feel bad bout yourself.

    1. I love thinking up ways to make people smile and I find the quicker and easier they are the more likely people are to do them ! I completely relate to that feeling which is why I like doing things like this because if I'm feeling rubbish, knowing that I've cheered someone else up is often enough motivation to get me out there trying to do some good :)
