Motivation In A Cup – Be Spontaneous


When I bought this cup back in August, I never thought it would give me inspiration. I’m hoping you can see there are tons of words/phrases that make the cup – they are like bucket lists items people should achieve. Over the next few weeks I’m going to highlight one of the phrases and point out how it inspires me, and I hope my readers can apply the phrase to their life. In addition to writing about the phrase, I will try to post my gratitudes for the day since its the month of Thanksgiving.

The phrase that struck my eyes yesterday was – “be spontaneous”. As a parent you always have to think on the fly and be creative for meals, outfits, or just handling situations. I can say that our fun events are sometimes planned out but typically I think of things spontaneously…I know some would say that’s a quality they like to have while others don’t. As I’ve gotten older my spontaneous living has decreased since I do have to take my girls into consideration.

So yesterday I had to figure out what I’d have for my “eat in class” meal.. lingering in my freezer has been a few pieces of ravioli that needed to be cooked, in the refrigerator was a little alfredo sauce and a little spaghetti sauce, and I just had bought a green giant veggie mix… I initially was going to just fix basic ravioli with spaghetti sauce BUT I thought what the heck let’s try ravioli with alfredo sauce with the veggies… Can I say it turned out real good.. I ate it all and didn’t even hesitate between bites! Check out the picture that I took right before the last bite….

I will leave on this note – every now and then you have to be spontaneous to add some variety and excitement to your daily routine. How does this phrase relate to your life?

Love ya,
