Good Morning! :)

I feel good writing today’s Mondays Are Good Days. And I hope you feel good after reading it.

The past 8 months have been tough, and while Mondays is always (or atleast tries to be) encouraging to you, the messages have been heavy.

Which is fine, I’m a realist and it is important to talk about our realities. It is important that Mondays doesn’t just clap it’s hands for you and tells you everything is fine, I make sure that together, we recognize and analyze our struggles and the hardships we face, and then we adjust, adapt, and stay positive.

Remember that the world rewards a fighter, and you are a warrior.

You’re a survivor, your struggles do not suppress your shine. You fight. And you win your battles and you are stronger now.

Whatever it is you’re fighting against or fighting for right now, do not let your oppressor dominate, you are the successor. Fight on, my friend.

Today’s Mondays Are Good Days includes:

  1. How hard is it to go to the gym?

  2. Jealousy

  3. SHOP

  4. Ways You Are Probably Ruining Your Life

  5. One Sentence Truths

  6. Conclusion & Today’s Takeaways

How hard is it to go to the gym?

Being healthy and active is key to a Good Monday, and cruical to feeling uplifted and motivated through the whole rest of the week.

TODAY we set the tone for the whole rest of the week. We will not let this day drag on in misery and complacency.

The secret to being successful in the gym is... to literally just SHOW UP.

The secret to getting off the couch and starting your one hour walk is to just lace up your sneakers.

The secret to running 3 miles is to take one step.

It’s not hard. Your rationals on why you can’t be active today are useless.

❌No Excuses! Don't skip and don’t be lazy. ⠀
✅Stay Committed & Consistent⠀
💥Work hard & PUSH Yourself⠀


I lay on my back and I think for awhile… 

Thinking thoughts about what I’m thinking about. 

Asking questions, 

Analyzing for answers.

I look for “ways I’m feeling,” and “why I’m thinking like this…”

One thing I always scan for is jealousy in my thoughts. And OH BOY do I shut those thoughts down QUICK! 

Jealous is an emotion that will hold you back. When you act out of jealousy or compare yourself with spite, you live your life with the devil’s leash tight around your neck.  

Try being happy in hell.

You won’t.

 You will be happy when you are happy for all. 

 “Good for you.” 

“Glad to see you doing well.” 

Say it genuinely. 

The happiest people are the least jealous. Actually, the happiest people aren’t even an ounce jealous. They understand different circumstances, different sacrifices, and they accept that we all live different paths. They know that spreading happiness, encouraging others and applauding an accomplishment will never hurt their own success.

What a silly thought to have - to think that being happy for someone else will mean there’s less to go around for you.

If you find yourself comparing yourself to others, use that conjured energy to focus on YOURSELF and your better being. 

Try hustling as hard as you hate. 

You will get NOWHERE sulking in your sadness. And guess what, I won’t feel bad for you. And neither will the universe.

The universe will see you - your pessimistic, jealous self and she will let you sit there, burning in your self pity, going nowhere. 

The universe rewards a lover. Ever heard of something called karma? 

When thoughts come out of jealousy, they are always evil. And they only exist because you allow them to. Look for them in your thinking, in your feeling. Jealousy is a heavy emotion to bare. You will feel lighter and happier without it. 

When you are overthinking, crying, hating…

Analyze your thoughts for jealousy.

It’s okay to admit that you found one - we’re not perfect - what matters is that once you recognize the jealousy, you replace the thought and channel that energy elsewhere.

We should always analyze our negative thoughts for a jealous attitude and then change that behavior.

Jealousy is an ugly trait and you are BEAUTIFUL. Be happy here, instead of in hell. 

You will never win when you put down others.

When you know you are great, you have no reason to hate.


Ways You Are Probably Ruining Your Life

1. Snoozing your alarm and waking up 1-2 hours later than originally planned

Ooooo I used to be like this. It was bad. Not to mention I would wake up with a horrible headache when I snoozed my alarm 14 times and then spend the entire rest of the day foggy, irritable and annoyed.

That’s not what we want from our Today. 

Set your intentions and set your alarm clock!

I get a lot of anxiety when I feel like the day is moving on too fast and I don’t have enough hours in my day.

I don’t like to be rushed, and I like to take lotssssss of breaks and eat my lunch and dinner in peace.

When I wake up late, I can’t do this because I have to cram TOO many things into a shorter amount of time. When this happens, I feel overwhelmed, stressed and angry. All emotions I deliberately try to avoid at ALL costs. 

So, to avoid this, I set my intentions, I wake up early, and my day is peaceful and productive. 

2. Self Criticism & Comparison

Focusing on your flaws and comparing yourself to others, tells your brain that you weren’t created with as many gifts, talents as the person someone else. And that’s not true!

You are you. Maybe you have some areas of improvement (which we all have, and will continue to have until the end of time), but that doesn’t mean you are allowed to criticize and compare.

All of your quirks tells a beautiful story about your personality, and every time you say mean things to yourself, or think you are not as successful or special as someone else, you’re dimming your light! And I want to see your shine!!

If you feel like you are comparing and criticizing yourself lately, I want for you to speak affirmations over yourself.


My life holds value and I have special qualities and a personality that adds positive energy to the world and to those around me.

I will not compare myself to others. I will speak life over myself when I hear nasty words and hateful thoughts - they are not allowed here. I was created with purpose, for a purpose. I will not tear away at my confidence anymore.

Comparison is toxic and damaging to you. Over time you will believe the lies you tell yourself if you continue to listen. Instead of comparing yourself with others, look within yourself and find the light that you offer this world. This aligns with today’s previous passage about jealousy.

3. Complaining

If you wake up complaining about your Day, then you might as well take a giant stamp that says “BAD DAY” and press it onto the calendar. Cause at this point, you haven’t even giving yourself or this day a chance!

You have a lot to do, I get it - it’s overwhelming. Some days, we just don’t have the energy. Some days, we feel heavy and we are emotional. But I want you to try. Try to have a peaceful and productive day. No complaining.

It’s a good day, remember?

You are a fighter, a warrior and a survivor. Tackle all of your battles today so that you can earn an enjoyable sit outside, followed by a long netflix binge accompanied by maybe some tacos. Mmmm, that sounds good.

And then, because you conquered this day and you feel SO GOOD, you’ll want to start again tomorrow.

Enjoy your good week, my friend :)
