Wandering the Weekends in California and beyond



Motivation Monday

So I am starting something new and fresh. It’s called MOTIVATION MONDAY. Each week I’ll share something that motivates me, and I encourage others to do the same! It can be a person, event, quote or workout! Really anything! I want a set a goal each week and push my self to do it. Whether it’s a personal goal, mental goal or a fun goal! At least I’ll be working towards something each week to better myself in some way. #MotivationMonday

Motivation is defined as a reason one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.


This week I want to concentrate on concentrating and keeping organized. I’m so easily distracted, either by a text message from Malia, Facebook post…or worse INSTAGRAM! I need to put my phone in my drawer, put some headphones in a just concentrate on work here at NAC. Answer questions that need to be answered right away, but other than that Malia is going to have to wait! My desk is a mess…this week I need to just work on making sure everything has a home! I know it’s a weird thing to post about and make a goal out of…however it’s something that’s important to me and something I need to work on (just ask the other peeps in the NAC office).


Someone who motivates me this week is my younger (yet way taller) sister Kasey. She’s 19 years old and playing volleyball in Hawaii at HPU. This past week she was named Pac West Athlete of the Week which is a very big honor! Kasey has always been a big time volleyball player and works hard to get what she wants even though most of the time what she wants is to just sit on the couch and watch Duck Dynasty but really has to go to volleyball practice.  Or play with our dog Ashton who is 2000+ miles away #SadFace. Fortunately when Kasey has away games…most of the time she has to fly over here! (you can only play some many teams in Oahu so many times). So tonight I’ll see her smash it up in Riverside (gotta love that in land traffic vibe!)

I won’t have a person that motivates me every week…just thought I would share the good news of an up and coming Thompson girls making headlines (for good reason of course).

Start your week off with motivation. Pick something you need to work on and put effort towards it. No one is perfect and it’s such a great feeling at the end of the week to know that you accomplished something.


Week 15- Favorite Quotes

Just continuing on with my 52 lists project catch up game…pickin’ and choosin’ which ones I like! So here’s week 15: FAVORITE QUOTES.


Some one of them are funny, some of them are motivational and some of them are so deep they’re cheesy. But they all mean something to me, and keep me going through out my normal days. I have them written on my mirrors, on post its on my desk, and in my little red book. I’ve collected quotes for a long time, and I’m more than happy to share some of my favorites.


“Trust no man, fear no bitch”

“You’re entirely bonkers, but i’ll tell you a secret: all the best people are” 

“People were created to be loved. Things were meant to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved and people are being used”

“Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

“Suck it up now, so you don’t have to suck it in later”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

“Don’t tell people what you are. Show them what are you going to be. Never settle.”

“Bitch don’t kill my vibe.”

“I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

“The world will continue to try & tell you who you are…until you stand up & show the world exactly who you’re gonna be.”

“The sea will set you free.”

“Trust is like a mirror. You can fix it, but you will always see that crack in the mother fuckers reflection.”

“Smile at the bitch who brings you down, laugh at the jackass who screws you over, and point the middle finger at the idiots who don’t know better.”

“Keep it classy, never trashy, and just a little bit sassy.”

So I put a couple more than I thought I would. But I have pages and pages of these! Thanks for enjoying!
