When times are hard look to yourself for guidance. You know more than you realise.
A beautiful dream can become a beautiful reality if you work hard enough at achieving it, however, it's likely to evolve into something even better as you pursue it. Always follow your dreams as you never know where it will lead you.
When lemons fall from the sky, enjoy it iced with a slice.
However much Monday sucks, that's 20% of the week down with a clean blow. It's also great motivation to hit the gym after work!
And finally... apparently today was "sick note Monday", the day when a significant chunk of the population pull a sickie. Good effort to everyone who made it into work / gym / blogosphere etc. Giving up should never be an option =]
