The Non-Negotiables

non negotiables

I don’t know what it is about the end of summer, but it has my motivation seriously lacking. In South Carolina it feels like summer drags on forever. I think part of my missing motivation is going into daydreaming about apple cider, booties and leaves changing colors. This summer has been a hard one so I’m not sad to see it go. I am ready to get some of my motivation back, though. Whenever I get into a funk like this, I make sure to read my list of “Non-Negotiables” I have hanging first thing when arrive at work in the morning. My Non-Negotiables are ten things I don’t compromise on and try to carry with me throughout the day.

My Non-Negotiables

  1. Start each day with a grateful heart.
  2. Work hard at everything you do.
  3. Always choose love over bitterness.
  4. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
  5. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
  6. Stay curious.
  7. Do it will passion or not at all.
  8. Be honest. Be silly. Be kind.
  9. You don’t have to be fearless. Just don’t let fear stop you.
  10. Have the courage to begin again.

I have these ten things printed out and displayed in my cubicle at work. That way when I come in everything morning, I can read them and start my day on a positive note. What do you do when you’re in a funk? Do you have any “Non-Negotiables”?
