Even though today is Friday, January 25th, I want to share a post with some relevant thoughts from this week six years ago.
Today is January 21st, 2013. It’s Inauguration Day. It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It’s my daughter’s birthday. It is a beautiful, sunny day in North Carolina. But according to the radio this morning it is also “Blue Monday” known as the most depressing day of the year. The commentators shared that 21 days into the new year is when reality hits. Today is the day we realize we are already off track on our new year’s resolutions. The credit card bills are coming in and the indulgences of December are weighing on us. The weather is turning gloomy and there just doesn’t seem to be anything to look forward to.
This got me thinking. Is that where you find yourself today? I am actually leaning toward those more optimistic ideas that opened this post, I wasn’t feeling that way last week.
