Hopping on the “Motivational Monday”Bus

I am hopping on the motivational Monday bus and sharing some inspiration and/or motivational quotes! I love how many people take part in this every Monday and the more and more I see people taking part in something positive like this, the more I felt as though I should as well. I see this going on a lot on social media, so I decided to step my game up and do exactly that; share some words of encouragement! Thank you to all of those who also share your words of encouragement on Monday’s as well as other days of the week, you are awesome!

Your fitness blogger,

Shay-lon xoxo

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon

  1. Yayyyy I’m so glad you did this! It’s always a good thing to motivate people. I really love all the images you used especially “you were born to be real not perfect” 🙂

    1. Yes! I like that one too, mostly because I have never heard of that saying and I had to think about what it meant to me when I posted it to make sure it would make sense to others! I think motivation is a great thing too and the more and more I had seen people like yourself doing it and getting the type of feedback you do when you post your positive vibes it made me want to be apart of that! It is a chain reaction 😀

      1. That’s so great to hear because that’s the whole point of spreading inspiration- to spread it! That quote in particular is amazing cos like you said it has a different meaning to everyone but at the end of the day everyone can relate to it. Perfection never leads to anything good and eventually only accepting yourself for who you are can make you truly happy.

      2. It would be awesome, I know many people who do establish themselves in their field of work and later become motivational speakers and enjoy sharing what they know with others. Do you want to be a Dr of psychology?

      3. Yeah a lot of people later on write motivational books or become motivational speakers which is pretty awesome cos it’s always nice to share your story and help others. I think I’m going to try to become a therapist first and see what that leads to 🙂

      4. Ooh that’s a cool career choice! I’m not really sure what to specialize in yet but recently I’ve been thinking about specializing in child psychology. I mean the way I see it if we can help children/teens before they become adults we have a higher chance of helping them and changing their lives for when they become adults.

      5. Hey! now that is very intelligent thinking. That would be really neat to help children. I believe it would do wonders, many kids need someone to listen to them and help them fight their inner demons, help them conquer their bad days. Good choice, as for my brother, eh.. I don’t know about him and that career choice! haha. I could not picture him doing it, so it will shock me if he actually ends up with that career path. I don’t think I could manage other people’s marriages, haha.

      6. Haha well to be honest I’m not a huge marriage person and I think I’ll barely be able to handle my own marriage so I really shouldn’t be giving others advice. Yeah when I first learnt psychology I realised a lot of things can be avoided if they are treated early. Plus some kids just have such a hard life and end up turning to drugs or crime or things like that which can be avoided with proper care and intensive therapy.

      7. Hahahahahahahahah! “barely be able to handle my own marriage” that is funny! Yes, my thoughts exactly. That is hilarious. I don’t think my brother even knows what marriage is at 21. he is still living the young bachelor lifestyle. LOL
        Hell, I don’t think I even understand the concept of marriage yet and I am 24. Lmao. Guess good luck to whomever I marry, because I will be lost LOL
        Drugs is huge here in my town, right now it is heroin on an all time high.. I was just reading an article of how a parent sold her child for heroin, it was very sad. Now the young girl is suffering from all kinds of shit and took to drugs and etc ..

      8. Hahaha yes exactly the whole concept of marriage is just so crazy it’s just too hard to understand. Lol maybe he’ll decide to specify in something else when he realizes you need to know stuff about marriage to become a marriage counsellor.
        Omg that’s so sad but the reality is that so many people actually do those kinds of things for drugs. I mean addicts are capable of doing anything to get some more drugs and it’s so unfair on their kids and I guess that’s probably why I want to help children make a better life for themselves

      9. Well I believe in you and I believe you no matter what road or path you take in your career, you will make a difference in someone’s life 🙂

        To be totally fair, I think you have unknowingly already 😀
