Motivational Monday #2

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Another Monday, another spoonful of happy from Sprinkle of Glitter.

Contrary to most of the population, I've actually always quite liked Mondays. I feel the same about them as I do the first of January. It's the chance to start a fresh and then chance to feel like you are facing life with the best of intentions. Monday is a good spirited day.


She Left Beauty Wherever She Went || Motivational Monday



I chose these words from Pinterest today because I think they are something we can all strive to achieve but unlike dieting, we can enjoy the journey as much as the results.

Leaving beauty doesn't mean leaving an invisible trail of your coco channel in the air as you gracefully waltz by your sexy office colleague (why does every office seem to have one token hot man???), but more leaving behind an attitude.

Since this is a beauty blog, there is an understandable tendency to lean very much towards physical, surface beauty and the tools we use to create this. However, attitudes can be beautiful too. You know someone has left beauty behind when after talking to them you feel lifted or calmer or happier or motivated. Their beautiful attitude has rubbed off on you and left you all the better for it. Beautiful, positive, kind, patient, caring, cheerful attitudes are contagious. 

Wouldn't it be amazing this week if we all gave a little bit more focus to the behaviours we display and the attitudes we leave behind?

Whether you are at school, work or home, let's leave our beauty where ever we go. 



Toodlepip!

  2. This is a really lovely thought. The tiniest things can make a huge effect in someone's day, and cause ripples that you may not know about :) Thank you Louise :)

  3. Aw this is such a lovely post!
    And all the contagious attitudes you mentioned, you have them all... Feeling lifted or calmer or happier or motivated is something i feel after reading your blog or watching your videos... you truly are a beautiful person, inside and out :)

  4. This has now given me a positive boost, thank you Louise. I'm going to wake up tomorrow morning feeling motivated and hopefully I will keep the attitude for the rest of the week. Half term starts a week today which is also motivating me, so I better just knuckle down for this last week and then I can relax during half term.
    Yet again, thanks for the inspiration,

  7. What a lovely post! Quite possibly the absolute loveliest! I love the idea of treating Mondays like January 1st. I'm definitely going to adopt this mentality. It's still Sunday here in the States, but thank you for a breath of fresh air to start the week off right! Your attitude is downright gorgeous!

  10. I believe that characters and 'attitudes' are what makes a person beautiful not just appearances!!

  11. I've been struggling recently but this lovely positive post has made me want to see the world in a different light. I've been told I have a calming influence so I aim to spread this around much more after reading this.
    Thank you :) x

  12. Id love to leave some kind of aura behind me, a presence if you will! Unfortunately all I seem to leave behind is an air of clumsiness!!

  14. I totally agree, I always try to have a smile on my face and be well spoken and friendly, and I pretty much always get a good response. I have been put in a lot of public facing roles in jobs because I am told I make people feel better, which makes me feel lovely in return! It's nice to be nice!

    I also love that your Motivational Monday is a Sunday night thing for me, and I like to wake up on Mondays and reflect on these positive thoughts.

    Thanks for being awesome!

  25. I'm really enjoying your Motivational Mondays and it was only yesterday that I was saying to a friend that I'm going to try and smile a bit more. My default face tends to be 'I may well snarl if you so much as look at me' regardless of how happy I'm feeling. Lovely read, thank you! x Becky

  57. I am a big fan of these kind of blogposts of yours. I actually LOLed while reading this part "Leaving beauty doesn't mean leaving an invisible trail of your coco channel in the air as you gracefully waltz by your sexy office colleague (why does every office seem to have one token hot man???)"
    You are the reason I actually started a pinterest account, and I've gotten so much inspiration from it! In fact I recently wrote a blogpost on 20 unusual dates, and I had you in mind, because I know if someone is going to try them, it would probably be you! :)
    Lots of love,
    Elle :)
