Monday Words: Set the World on Fire

Be Who You Were Created To Be | The Fresh Exchange

To kick off your Monday, I wanted to share a quote that just makes me want to kick some ass on a Monday morning. This simple quote from St. Catherine of Sienna is one of those you keep in your back pocket on a day when you feel a little lost on your journey or a kick in the pants.

It is easy to get wrapped up in comparison and insecurities. In fact, I know for me it is easier to find myself in that mindset than on the other side of the fence where you would find words and thoughts such as those from Catherine above. It is much easier to choose to let your feelings of not being good enough or questioning your work to seep in. This leaves you in a place of questioning the work you do well and all the things that make you stand out at what you do. Though the world is a not so kind place, our head spaces can be even crueler.

I want to remind you today to embrace what makes you who you are. Stop looking at what everyone else is doing, instead, go do what you know you are meant to, what you are good at, and most importantly what you are created to do. This will be the thing that sets you apart, brings you joy, and ultimately will change the world in both big and small ways.

So screw those Monday blues. Let’s embrace today and show it we are here to make it happen no matter what.

Cheers, my friends!
