“You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you're really busy;
then you should sit for an hour."
Old zen saying
I read the quote above today and it really struck a chord with me. I don’t meditate and I’m not planning on starting now, but the quote made me think of inspiration. Perhaps when things aren’t so good is when you need to work harder at seeing the sunshine in the little bits. The minuscule bits. The whatever size bits. Perhaps inspiring Mondays are more needed when your days are as grey as the January sky in good old Britain.
When inspiring Mondays left me, it was because of the commitment of doing it for over a year on a specific day of the week, regardless of my mood or social calendar. The day inspiring Mondays return to me, is the day I need them to hold my hand for a while and tell me it will all be ok. Much in the style of Nanny McPhee, really.
:: my Mother.
:: text swapping with Mother. It’s the way she calls me daughter, a derivative word of it which makes
my heart warm.
:: dark green nail polish.
:: shiny black boots.
:: excellent housemates.
:: my friends. the ones who drop everything to hug me. and feed me. and be my rocks.

Inspiring Mondays started of as my little ray of sunshine beaming through the unfair dislike people
have of… Mondays.
Inspiring Mondays developed to become my search for said little ray of sunshine on grey days. And
blue days. And yellow days. And any colour days, really!
Some days you have to work harder than others at being happy.
