Monday Music & Motivation

I used to do a post like this wayyyyy back when and I really loved it, so I decided since one of my 2016 goals (coming Wednesday) is to blog more regularly that this would be a good addition. I hope you guys like it – please give me some feedback! And if you hate it I might still do it anyway because look whose name is in the URL… oh… it’s mine and I’m a tyrant.

Basically the idea is that I usually spend some portion of my weekend psyching myself up for the upcoming week. It’s kind of something like this:

{Sidebar: We’ve been watching a lot of 30 Rock lately, are you proud Danica & Madi??? And loving it, I might add.}

It’s actually more of a Pinterest spiral and lots of lists. I color-code my planner and use a lot of stickers. I love it. I’ve found a few things that I want to keep in mind this week, and kind of this year as we have this great opportunity to kickstart something new.

I really  noticed a theme and it was all about “being.” I think that fits well with my Word of 2016: Queen. Who do I want to BE? I’ve struggled with that for years, I think. There’s a lot of facets to Danica. I can be comfortable in a lot of different niches. I can make any type of friends, read any type of books, live any type of health level, and be any range of religious. I really like my versatility, but it also leaves me, and sometimes others, confused. I want to stay versatile and flexible, but now is the best possible time to firm up the parts of me that I really want to BE. And I’m trying to get a sense of what that is.
