Monday Joy? Seriously?

I’m not actually 100% sure you can be happy on Monday …

…but I’m gonna try.

This past Friday I was a bit under the weather (don’t ask and I won’t tell), so I didn’t post my regular Five Friday Happy Bringers.  But it’s a Brand New Day and Week, so I thought I’d try to make up for lost time by telling you why Happiness is Here.

1.  Potato soup, when you’re sickish and need to be a baby.

2.  Recently visiting my parents up in Ball Ground, GA (north of Atlanta).  Here’s my mom (86), daughters Amy and Emily, and one of my grandtwins Madison.

3.  Enjoying four events at this year’s incredible Savannah Music Festival, including bluegrass, Irish, Scottish, South African and Brazilian music.  I’m so music-ed now.

Just Try Saying It

Here’s a beautifully cool affirmation from Hay House.

20140127-101156.jpg
I challenge you to try saying it on this Monday morning. Say it to yourself. Or a colleague at work. Or a family member or friend. Even if you don’t think it’s true. Try saying it for the sole purpose of it being a desired and beautiful affirmation of life.

“Love” & “Monday” in the Same Sentence

Try saying this:  “I Love Mondays!”  (Even if you feel 100% the opposite.  Just try it.)

But, then again, you need money to buy coffee, so I guess money can buy happiness after all.

Here’s to coffee money!
