For those of you who didn’t know, yesterday was Blue Monday. Yes it was suppose to be the most depressing day of the year.
Why you might ask? Well they say it falls right about the time when those who make new year resolutions fall off the wagon . Exactly the reason I do not make any. It is hard enough trying to stay up day to day with myself. I do not need any added feats or hoops to jump through, especially those that I may put there for not really good reason. Next it is also about the time that many are starting to receive all those reminders of the monies owed due to their Christmas spending. Exactly the reason that I try and spread my shopping out through out the year. In fact believe it or not I have already purchased a couple for this coming Christmas. I also believe in home made gifts for Christmas. Something I also have major plans for this coming year. And lastly, because it is a time when most of us have been stuck inside due to frigid temperatures and/or never ending inches of snow. Something we have yet to see here around me this year.
Needless to say I am not one who believes in Blue Monday. I think ones day is exactly what one makes of it. Yes there can always be trials and such that are staring us smack in the face. Things that we can not avoid no matter how far under our covers we crawl or how many shots of tequila we consume. Yet even with muck up to my ears I know that contentment is possible. No I am not saying that I enjoy it 24/7 but I do know that one can make a situation lots worse simply with an attitude. Like wise one can make it so much better simply with an attitude. That being said I hope that this is the first you have heard about the dreaded blue Monday and that yesterday was a wonderful day. And if by chance it wasn’t, there is always today to make it better.
