The weekend has come and gone AGAIN. Two days just never feels like long enough, am I right? Whether you're sitting in class or stuck at work, chances are you've got a case of the Mondays just like us... Cheer up, buttercup! Monday really isn’t so bad. Sometimes a little Monday Motivation is just what you need to kick off your week the right way. Think about exactly what inspires you and use that as the fuel to your fire! These 3 quotes will help you get started.

Before you jump to any conclusions, remember that what you are seeing is only surface level. You will never really know their struggles or fears- just what you can gather from the “highlight reel” of their lives. Behind the scenes of every perfect post is an untold story. Stay focused on your goals and how you plan to accomplish them and everything else will seem much less important.
