12 November 2012


Day 12: Today I am thankful for Mondays, yes I said it. The dreadful day everyone gives so much grief to, sometimes is my favorite day. (see below)

Poor Monday. It gets so much backlash for being itself. To me, sometimes, Monday is the "reset button." The reset button to the bad week I had before, the eating slip ups had over the weekend and the zen I so frequently lose control of. I believe everyone deserves a reset button, at any time in their life, week, day, whenever. You deserve it when ever and how every many times you need it.
My sister sent me this great quote the other day that I wanted to share. I love to try and find the silver lining in everything (I fail very often at this) but this letter does just that for Monday.

I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but according to statistics, there will be over 5,000 weddings, 10,000 childbirths, and 42 million hugs occurring today throughout the United States. Also today, there will be at least 4 people that will win the multimillion dollar lotteries, 600 people will get promotions at work, and 3,000 people will lose their virginity. There will also be 600 dogs adopted, 35,000 balloons sold, and 800,000 skittles eaten. Plus, the words “I love you” will be said over 9 million times. So again, I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but just smile, because according to statistics, it should actually be a really nice day.
Cheer to Monday being a reset button and a statistically great day!
