Inspiration, motivation...

I just want to let you all know that I am still here and okay...hehe.  I've just been busy with exciting projects that I haven't been able to pop in and say hello.  So, now that I have a moment, here's my HELLO! 

I hope you're all enjoying this sunshiney day!!  Gorgeous days like this definitely inspire and motivate me to be productive!  I've already done my washing, a bit of cleaning, and our dinner is already cooking in the slow cooker and let me tell ya the aroma is divine!  Now, you're probably wondering what project I'll be sharing with you today...well, sorry to say but I won't be sharing anything until tomorrow.  Today I want to share with you one thing I did that helped me get inspired and motivated when I was feeling really defeated. 

Last week I worked on two projects, and they were pretty big for one weekend.  I definitely underestimated how much work and time would be involved, which meant I had to go without sleep for over three days...not good at all!  One of the days I was feeling really defeated, my body was exhausted and my brain was slowly switching off.  I remember telling myself "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" over and over and over again.  Then I decided to get up and stop everything and just take a small break.  I looked at myself in the mirror and it was a depressing sight, hehe.  There was no inspiration evident in my reflection.  So I decided to spice things up a little with a classic/contemporary twist.  I did my hair, put on a little bit of makeup, and got changed.  What did I end up with?  Well, a more happy and inspiring me!  And honestly, I felt more energised afterwards and I was ready to get back into some serious hard work!

Have you ever experienced something like this before?  If so, what worked for you?  How did you get back on the inspiration wagon?   Do tell!



  1. Your gorgeous and totally look refreshed and not a bit defeated. Completely understand what you mean and have been through it numerous times...it always helps to get a bit pampered up to feel good again.

  2. Thank you Angela, you're a darl! It's amazing what a little bit of pampering can do, especially after too many sleepless nights in a row. Glad to know there are others out there who understand what I mean :-)
