I’ve come across a bunch of people that dread Sundays. They dread Sunday because they know that tomorrow, Monday means that it’s time to go back to work. I can relate because I once worked a job that I hated. And the word hated is an understatement. When O found out that there were layoffs coming (this was back in 2008-2009), I got excited and hoped that I would get laid off! That is how much I disliked my job. Luckily for me, I am now in a much better job that I truly love. Sundays now aren’t dreaded. Sure, I’d love to not have to go to work tomorrow, but that feeling doesn’t consume me and ruin my day.
I decided to make Sundays a day of inspiration. Each Sunday I will post a handful of quotes that will hopefully inspire you to either look on the bright side of life, or encourage you to take that first step and make the change that you need to do.
