Inspirational Posts to Offset the Monday Morning Blues

I’m out of the office again today, because I’m still recovering from a bad cold. So, rather than be totally unproductive today, I spent this morning reading many of the blogs I follow.

Here are some inspirational posts to get you through the start of a new week. Enjoy!

Tsumashiku Kurashi knows that You Only Live Once Right? So, who really cares about that McMansion, those flashy cars, and all the other useless crap? If we indeed only live once, well, then we better start living now!

Sorry to hear that you’re not feeling well. I usually only get colds but they’re a pain because they linger. I’d much rather be sick as a dog for a day and get it over with.

Thanks for the mention.

Get well soon and rest up.
