“Sometimes ideas hold us down;
they become heavy anchors that hold the bark of identity fixated in shallow dead water. ” – John O’Donohue
I remember there being a time in my life where I would dread Monday mornings – luckily for me, that is no longer the case.
The morning I’m writing and sending out this email/post is Monday 17th January 2022 – the third Monday of the new year.
Already I’ve heard one radio station proclaim that ‘Blue Monday’ has arrived – the worst day of the year, apparently. Except there’s nothing to back that up. It was an idea originally made up by a travel company as a way to encourage holiday sales.
And the phrase stuck, and spread.
