Mondays seem to elicit the deepest, longest sighs of any of the other six days, so much so we barely enjoy Sunday for hatred of the following morning to come. To help you on your way to beating down the Monday blues here are a few interesting and happy news stories/titbits from London and beyond. Who said only sad, depressing tales should make the headlines!? Go on: share with friends and family, and spread some Monday love:
London is a vibrant and happening place don’t you know!? There’s always something going on. It’s London Design Week (March 8-13) so for all you interior design aficionado’s living in London or just happen to be visiting this great city, why not CHECK OUT WHAT’S ON OFFER?
I fell in love with these images from National Geographic. They’re bound to brighten up your Monday just that little bit: YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, NORTHERN ROCKY MOUNTAINS, COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE, ST. MAGDALENA, ITALY, MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA, MORNING WORKOUT, SHANGHAI, NORTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA.
I wasn’t sure what to make OF THIS. Is it too much of a generalisation or an accurate depiction of school lunches where you live? The lunch shown for the UK seems accurate enough…do you agree?
Feeling down? Need a pick me up? Read through these INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES. Those that jumped out at me and truly resonated were quotes by: Theodore Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, Steve Jobs, Ronald Regan, Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King and Milton Berle. At the very least, one or two are bound to have deep, earth shattering meaning for you. Why not get them down on card, cut out, laminate and place in your purse or wallet? Or perhaps put up on your bedroom wall or set as your screensaver on your phone or work computer? Somewhere, anywhere you can see them regularly.
Last but by no means least, a belated Happy International Women’s Day (March 8) to all my fellow females around the world. Lets celebrate one another – our achievements, hopes and dreams. As author Alice Walker put it: “The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” We make up one half of this world’s population and are a vital part of it’s continued existence, lets remember that. And whilst we’re at it, let’s remember the unlimited potential we each possess to make a difference not only in our lives, but those of our families and our communities. Anne Frank, diarist and writer (who, aged 15, died in March 1945 in the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp) sums it up best, I think: “The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
Happy Monday one and all.
