Hi again everyone,
How has your week gone?
It's been a gloomy week here, as it must have been for many of you, but this morning the sun's shining and the day's dry and bright. That alone has helped to lift spirits a little bit.
And, on top of that, maybe the first tiny positive shoot peeking through like a snowdrop from the earth, that lockdown appears to be beginning to work and new covid19 cases have fallen the tiniest bit. Vaccination numbers are also rising so for the first time in a while, it feels as if we might be heading in the right direction again.
I watched Mr Motivator (Derrick Evans) on TV this morning.... the good old guru of exercise who originally came to exercise fame with a slot on GMTV in the early 90s. (Do any of you remember him too?). I was a firm fan of his positivity around exercise, and of life in general, and he said something this morning which motivated me once again! It was to the effect that 'just because you have a bad day, it doesn't mean you have to have a bad life!' Daily living has really tossed us around on the waves for almost a year now and it's easy to become despondent. So it's great to come across a Mr Motivator every once in a while to remind us that no matter what it is that knocks us down, eventually we'll find the courage to get up again.
Does anyone else have a positive hero who can help lift you up when everything is looking and feeling bleak?
I hope you all have a pleasant weekend and manage to feel some positivity too. 👍😊🌈
