Monday Motivator: Celebrate the Day

May you live every day of your life. –Jonathan Swift

Today is St. Patrick’s Day, and here in the library, people are wearing green and occasionally greeting each other in horrendously bad Irish accents. (Okay, maybe I’m the only one doing the latter.)Image


But as I practice my pronunciation of ‘eejet,’ I’m reminded that there’s a good reason for such holidays. They lift us out of the mindlessness that we can get ourselves into, worried about deadlines, projects, appointments, and the daily detritus. We start thinking about the future when things will be turned in or finished and forget to enjoy the day we have. 

So try to find a way to celebrate everyday. And if you need a little help, here’s a website that gives you a reason to observe each day as special.
