It’s Monday… Ah, the smell of office stress, deadlines, endless meetings, house chores, and the list goes on. It’s time to get your mind and body going because it’s going to be a long week! At least that is what you anticipate.
Mondays seem to be the most abhorred day in human history. Certainly, with the endless mounds of work to do at the start of a new week, Monday just doesn’t seem like the ideal way to finish an enjoyable weekend.
Yes, you have to get up early in the morning in order to start checking away at a long to-do list, but don’t let Mondays be any less inspiring than any other day of the week! Here are some inspirational quotes for Monday morning to help you get going. These quotes are almost as good as your morning coffee!
“You cannot be happy, or at least not stay happy, as long as you see yourself as being simply a grown-up with responsibilities: you need to play, to travel, to make wild assumptions of how life would be on an alien planet if you were a robot, to make plans to conquer the world, to taste cooked bugs, (insert fun or absurd thoughts/actions here). The time you put in will come back amplified in the form of creativity and energy to be the grown-up.” –Sorin Tănasă
“There is always more on its way – more opportunities, more ideas, more love. Think abundance — always think abundance. Belief in abundance is the source of all generosity and peace.
