The Bluest Day Of The Year
So, what can you do to brighten this day? Here are some suggestions.
First of all, if winter is a part of the equation, plan a trip to a place where winter is not. It's summer right now in Namibia, for instance. Look at my friend Don's blog. He's there right now and he's loving life. Hop a plane, man!
Secondly, if Christmas bills are giving you the blues, get proactive for next Christmas. Start a plan now to shop for gifts through the year, as you have a little cash here and there. That will spread the gift-giving cheer through the whole year - making you feel like Santa everyday. He's a jolly old fellow. Ever seen him depressed?
If it's broken resolutions that have you discouraged, think like a good Baptist! There's an altar-call every weekend! Come back to the fount of forgiveness. A new beginning awaits you! Get born again, again! I'm just kidding, that's humor not theology. But the truth is that today is as good a day as January 1st to take some positive steps in your life. And when you trip and fall next week, that will be as good a day to start over as you could ever ask for. Here's a tip - find a friend to share making changes with you. There's nothing quite like a shared journey.
Have a great 'Blue Monday'.
