We have entered a new week! And while many of us are grateful and consider the new week a blessing, some of us can be feeling quite (read: very) demotivated. Which is probably why you’re reading this in the first place. You might be reading this whilst still in bed, thinking why on earth you would leave your comfortable nest, get up and get to work? So here are 14 quotes by some people who have quite the experience in putting in the work and who can possibly motivate you to get up and grind! “There’s no magic to achievement. It’s really about hard work, choices and persistence.” – Michelle Obama “It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” – Babe Ruth “I am not lucky. You know what I am? I am smart, I am talented, I take advantage of the opportunities that come to my way and I work really, really hard. Don’t call me lucky. Call me a badass”. – Shonda Rhimes “I’m gonna go hard no matter what because …
It’s never easy to get up while the rest of the world gets to chill. Which is why I made this list of motivating Instagram accounts. Because a bit of motivation can get you a long way.
I’ll be taking you to one of the most memorable days of my life: my sister’s wedding, where I held my first public speech, my niece stole the show and I caught the bouquet (YES BIH). Mind you, today it’s the two-month anniversary of her wedding! Also we’re going sailing with my best friend, going BTS of my beloved partner in crime’s photoshoot and you’re gonna meet some of my family members.
Raise your hand if you sometimes hide your magic on purpose. If you raised your hand, I have 3 reasons why you need to quit hiding your magic!
I said it once and I’ll say it again, this year flew by!
But for the first time in a while I can look back at the year with a smile on my face.

Which is why as a little shoulder pat to myself, I’m listing some of my highlights of ’17.
Are you a procrastinator?
Do you wait for tomorrow to fulfill your dreams. Then this one is for you.

Well, queen of wishing c’est moi. Unconsciously so. I don’t know how many times I’ve said I wanted something and got mad (not frustrated, just straight up furious) my dreams weren’t becoming reality. It wasn’t until this year that I had made one of my resolutions to actually see my dreams come to life that I found out that I wasn’t being SMART.
Yessss! I finally have time to write a new post. Sike, not really. I’m on the bus on my way to work, writing and listening to a podcast. But bustrips have become my only breaks. Or at least I try to make them my breaks as these usually get filled with phonecalls.(Hey Noa, hey Grace!) But now, I technically have time, plus a reason to write. Because your girl just started her own (t-shirt)-line. That’s right. I finally took the jump.
