Motivational Monday – Who are You Trying to Prove?

Work for a cause, not applause.

I’ll put this simply:  It doesn’t matter what you’re doing.  If you’re doing it to impress or prove to others your worth, YOU ARE IN THIS FOR THE WRONG REASON.

Pointing FingerSo, who are you trying to prove?  If that answer is anyone but yourself, it’s time to reevaluate.

Starting today, your goal is to tell yourself that you are doing this because you want to.  Because you’re a good person.  Because you care about your work.  Because you have no one to prove but yourself!

What is your cause?  What will you prove to yourself?  Let us know in the comments!

Citrus Peel Seedlings

20-Insanely-Clever-Gardening-Tips-And-Ideas9

Gardening Tip:

Seedlings need as much nourishment as possible to grow!  When starting seedlings, plant them in a citrus peel. This not only looks adorable, it’s also healthy for your seedlings because the peel will compost in the soil.

When you’re ready to plant the seedling in a bigger pot, plant the citrus peel too, so your young plant can continue to get extra nutrients!  Just don’t forget to poke a hole in the bottom of the peel for drainage.

The Blue Moon Saloon

LA Saturday Night

Lafayette, Louisiana is mostly known for its numerous shopping centers, historical downtown district, and beautiful university campus.  Aside from the main attractions, Lafayette is home to a plethora of hidden gems, as well.  These small, local venues and eateries best represent just what Lafayette is all about.

Take, for instance, the Blue Moon.  It wouldn’t be surprising if you’ve never even heard of this place before.  The Blue Moon is a saloon as well as a guesthouse–in other words, you can party all night and even have a place to crash for the night. BLUEMOONSALOON_39343944

The Blue Moon knows entertainment; it hosts only authentic South Louisianian artists, those who were born into the art of Cajun, Zydeco, and Creole music.

A prime example of such artists are Roddie Romero and the Hub City All Stars.  This band has been celebrated for its authenticity and talent for over 20 years, and they will be performing at the Blue Moon tonight at 10 PM.  If you haven’t experienced the Blue Moon yet, there’s no better night than tonight!
