Thought of the Day: Mondays

Monday quote

Mondays are akin to routine, work and lethargy. We cross the days off our calendars in relief that we’re one day closer to the weekend. But with that, we also pay a price: life slowly passes us by until we don’t even realise it. We begin wishing away our life and wasting away our days, because we’re constantly looking ahead. But every day holds a piece of happiness for us to take a bite out of. We might not be able to do what we love around the clock. But until we can, we can at least start doing more of what we love and try loving more of what we do. Why would you wait til the weekend? Happiness starts today, even on a Monday.

Three things we should act on

Follow your heart quote

There are so many limitations we place on ourselves that make it more and more difficult to act. But as life is for living, here are three things I believe we should always act on:

  1. Dreams – It’s a beautiful feeling to have a dream. But dreams shouldn’t be stored away inside our minds as an escape from reality. Dreams should be our vision for ourselves and the world and we should do everything we can to transform them into reality. Dreams are the way we make life better, for ourselves and for others.
  2. Bullying – When we see a person verbally or physically assaulting another person, we shouldn’t be watching on the sidelines. It can be daunting to put ourselves in the firing line, but nobody should be forced to live in the fear, the insecurity and the hate that a bully inflicts on them. By standing up to bullying, we’re standing up to the control negativity can have over us.
  3. Instincts – We should always follow our senses, our gut feelings, our instincts. Because at the end of the day, we know ourselves best and what feels right for us, more than anyone else can. And if that lead us astray into a pile of mistakes, even better. That means we’re actually living and not just breathing.

What do you think is important to act upon?
