After a long weekend, the return to real life can be a bit of a drag. And after a long weekend that never was, well…you have my utmost sympathy.
Whether you’re suffering from an extended case of the Mondays on a Tuesday or a case of the Tuesdays on what feels like Monday, we could all use a little Tuesday motivation.
Nothing cures the winter blues like a good book, so I’m drawing some inspiration from literature. There’s something about a book that reminds you that we may have our differences but a lot of what we experience is shared. On that note, I’ll leave you to enjoy some inspiration courtesy of a few fantastic female authors.
“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.”
“Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
“The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank
“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.”
“Mansfield Park” by Jane Austen
“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”
“Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus ” by Mary Shelley
Hopefully that has you pumped and ready to take on the rest of your short, or regular sized week. Hang in there.
…just for fun:
