Happy Monday Beautiful People! 

Oh rejection! Who loves rejection???!! I was never too fond of rejection. Honestly, rejection can be pretty lame, and I admit, it hurts to be rejected, misunderstood, or not welcomed. I used to want to play it safe because of how much I feared being rejected. I have learned so much and now I understand why rejection is GOOD!

 I embrace it! Rejection is a good thing because it is the ammunition we NEED! If everything was just handed to us we would not understand the true worth of our desires. It is at that moment when someone simply says NO, that we have that wake up call that either says fight or flight.

 If your dreams are significant enough for you, you will pursue it with passion and perseverance no matter who says they approve or not.

Happy Monday!   

It is said that most people, by this time of year have already broken their new year’s resolutions. If you have fallen victim to this, my advice to you is, Don’t beat yourself up!!!

Resolutions are meant to be broken. This is why I prefer emotionally driven goals! Goals driven by emotion have a much longer staying power. When you make a goal for yourself, think of all the necessary reasons why this goal MUST be achieved! Those reasons should be echoing through your head EVERYDAY!!!!!

Happy Monday beautiful people, remember to never take time for granted. I made sure to spend Thanksgiving with my grandmother and 2 days later she had a stroke and is in the hospital right now. Don’t wait to tell those you love how you feel, or don’t wait to live the life you want. (Lucas and his great grandma) Www.cultureshocking.com #Motivationalmonday #inspiration #personalpower

Motivational Monday: Be A Gratitude Junkie!

Happy Monday Beautiful People!



Thanksgiving is this week and usually it’s a time to express our gratitude, but it shouldn’t just be during the holidays.

We should be thankful everyday! Be a gratitude junkie! Share your gratitude by appreciating the life you have, the loving people who cross your path, and be happy you have your heartbeat.

Life is beautiful, even when things aren’t going our way, there is always beauty. It is our responsibility to find the beauty. Love and cherish your life. Gratitude opens doors for more beautiful experiences.

Love, be grateful, be open to all beautiful experiences, give thanks for all the experiences (good and bad because they make you even more unique). Be a gratitude junkie!!


Happy healthy living!
Thank you for being with me through this journey called life!

Xoxo,

~Mary

Motivational Monday: Life Doesn’t Change Until YOU Change. 

If you are wondering why your life is stagnant regardless of what you do, it is because YOU are standing in the way. We humans are habitual creatures. We get comfortable with our patterns, routines, and lifestyle. We are afraid of change even when we say we are open to it. Eventually we get frustrated because we keep repeating the same cycles.

Happy Monday Beautiful People!

If someone discredits your capabilities, stand up for yourself! Defend your dreams, do not let someone who is doubtful tear your hopes and aspirations to shreds. Your faith in yourself is the most powerful piece toward your success. Others may not understand or believe in what you are trying to achieve, just as long as YOU do! Protect and nurture your aspirations. Nurture your dreams into reality. Brilliant inventions, masterpieces, and great work all stemmed from someone who stood up for their dreams.

Stand up for what you believe, show and give love, stay positive, see the endless possibilities (even during the hardships), be innovative, and achieve your dreams!

Happy Monday beautiful people! Are you a chronic excuse maker??
 Living behind excuses will cause you to lose precious time and miss better opportunities. Instead of making excuses, explore the endless possibilities that exist. We often are so quick to give up, not realizing that the destination was so close.

Stop making excuses, stop living in your comfort zone. Get up and get to work!
Success comes to those who choose not to accept limitations!

Happy Monday Beautiful People!

I have a question for you? How is your year so far? Have you been working toward your goals? Have you been seeing any progress? Have you been procrastinating? We are nearing 2014, let’s use the remaining few months of 2013 to put massive power toward our dreams. The year is not over, so much can happen in a month, a week, even a day! Make sure you are truly DOING and not just dreaming or thinking. Put goals down on paper, make a designated plan. Be sure to reflect on the goals DAILY! Success is hard work and sacrifice. Always remind yourself that you don’t fail until you have given up. KEEP GOING! If you make mistakes, that’s alright. Mistakes are great learning tools. If you get rejected, embrace it. Get inspired by it.

We are on this journey together. Stay at it! You deserve to have the life you want. Leave the limiting beliefs and doubt at the bus stop. Get working! Www.Cultureshocking.com #motivationalmonday #inspiration #wisdom #personalpower #courage #truth #motivation

This week, let us focus on dodging suggestion. In psychology, “suggestion is the psychological process by which one person guides the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of another”.

We often give others the power to influence our decisions and life paths because we fearful and are uncertain in our capabilities to make decisions. Sometimes we end up making decisions because someone else told us it was the best thing for us based on their perception and their life.

Be in control, do not let others steer the direction of your life. You and only you will have to live with the consequences. Read more at www.cultureshocking.com #motivation #personalpower #inspiration #motivationalmonday
