Or shall I say, Mond-yay — a coin termed by my friend Ryan as a half-joke to turn the start-of-week stigma on its head.
The inspiration for this new category comes from a revelation I heard recently. Mon means “mine” in French, so the word “Monday” can be loosely translated to “my day.” Enough of these mundane Monday groans… let’s carpe diem, EVERY diem, and start the week off right!
Today’s Monday motivation is a quote from Roald Dahl, an author I loved as a child (James and the Giant Peach, anyone?). Our grown-up selves often forsake “magic” to fit into this grown-up world, but some of the brightest trailblazers are visionaries who have taught us to live out wide-eyed wonder daily.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most un-likely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” –Roald Dahl
Props to EcoCult for posting this. EcoCult is a new site I discovered from Prevention online which “celebrates all that is awesome, delicious, edgy, well-designed and fun in sustainability. And EcoCult believes the human experience more authentic when it’s green.”
Have a beautiful Monday, folks. And remember — make this day, uniquely yours.
