Feeling tired and sluggish this Monday? We all do. We just need a jolt to make things go smooth.
I don’t loathe Mondays… intentionally. There are just things that happen on the weekend that may also be the cause of the Monday Blues. My favorite author Kurt Vonnegut talks about Blue Monday in one of his novels and it’s far from what you can imagine. Get over your blues. Regardless how tiring it may be, just keep your head up.
His book Breakfast of Champions is a tragic comedy that reflects real life. The humanist in Vonnegut always saw the good in people and in what surrounded him. He believed in being kind above all else. His satirical voice is like a backhand to reality. He was funny like that.
But the famed writer left nuggets of wisdom that I personally hold dear. To provide some kind of inspiration for you to get over your Blue Mondays, too; here they are:
“We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane.”
“There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”
A bright blue sky on a Blue Monday doesn’t sound so bad now, doesn’t it?
