Happy Monday morning!
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend, It is getting colder and colder here in Vancouver and we are expecting some snow over the week! It is so nice to enjoy a fine cup of hot coffee on these cold winter days and it certainly helps to get you through Monday morning! The holidays are a great time of the year but they can also present their own challenges. If you come across any such challenges, perhaps this thought-frame from the great Andy Warhol will help you overcome it. I know it very much resonated with me and I go back to it anytime I am faced with a thought I can’t escape.
Here is your magic mantra to carry with you from this Monday forward:
“I was walking in Bali and I saw a bunch of people in a clearing having a ball because somebody that they really liked had just died. They were celebrating the person’s life instead of crying about their death. And I realized that everything was just how you decided to think about it. Sometimes people let the same problems make them miserable for years when they should just say “So what?”
That’s one of my favorite things to say: “So what?”
I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.”
