Do something nice for yourself today

Mondays can be tough. They often mean a long wait until the next weekend, hard work, less time with those you love,  and a bunch of other challenges. Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats immortalized an infamous Bloody Monday back in ’79 when a young girl shot up an elementary school because according to her, “I don’t like Mondays.” Perhaps this tragedy can be a reminder that we all need to take it easy every now and then, reward ourselves, focus on the positive, relax and listen to some good music . . . . like this.

Thanks Michelle for reminding me about this most excellent song.
