Hello Monday!

Its Monday again, I wonder why it is so many people dread Mondays so much and think so much negativity about it? After all it’s just another day of a week. If we embrace the day like any other than failures and disasters can be turned into triumph, negative  into positive, bad into good. Face an uncertain day, make some allowances….and dream about Friday coming around again. Stay calm and think positive.
We have had a weekend of beautiful sunshine here in the UK, people have been attending BBQs with friends and family…oh and Andy Murray won Wimbledon…..the first time Britian has won since Fred Perry in 1936,  on the 7/7 first time in 77 years. What an incredible start to this week!
With all this in mind Monday should be the start to a new week of even more hope and possibilities.
”Each new day greets us with no rules except for the rules we place on it. Greet this new day with open arms and endless possibility.”
~Steve Maraboli~
 
Embrace Mondays, it has endless possibilities

Embrace Mondays, it has endless possibilities

‘If’ by Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master,
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

Have a good Monday everyone, many thanks for stopping by.
