Oh hey there, Monday! I know we all dread Monday mornings, but I figured today instead of focusing on the typical Monday blues, why not change it up a little, and think about what positive things Monday also represents. Hello, isn't it the start of a brand new week? A chance to start fresh again and an exciting opportunity to see what the week brings? I love the idea of a clean slate and fresh start, and truly believe that if I wake up on Monday morning and instead of dreading the start of the week, try to think of the positive things a new week means, then it will change my entire attitude for the rest of the week.
If ya'll follow me on twitter you might have seen me mention this article, but in case you missed it, this article from the Huffington Post is worth taking a few minutes of your afternoon and reading..the writer, Claire Bidwell Smith, reminds us all that in this day and age of social media, twitter, Instagram, always letting the world know what we are up to, it may appear that we have such fabulous lives without a care in the world, but the reality is, those day-to-day photos of life when it's not perfect, when things don't go as planned, when your world feels like it is crashing down on you, those things do happen to all of us, and just because they are not shown in social media outlets, doesn't mean they don't exist.
Finally, a little inspiration to remember this week, and something I'm hoping to remember anytime I need to make a decision...
