"Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds, you can grow flowers or you can grow weeds..."

JFS Friends – 

Mondays struggle with a bad reputation. Signaling the end of the weekend we often approach Mondays with a sense of disappointment or resignation. This can lead us to start the week off from a place of apprehension rather than optimism.

The Canadian author, Lucy Maud Montgomery once said:

“Isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”

As we begin a new week-rather than thinking of it as returning to the problems of last week – perhaps we can look forward with optimism and see the possibility that lies in a new day with no mistakes in it yet.

The German philosopher, Meister Eckart, said:

“Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.”

By allowing each day to be a beginning we need not feel so burdened by the mistakes or challenges of the past but rather can be open to the possibility of shaping a new and different future.

Wishing you a wonderful start to a new week full of possibility.

Best wishes,
