Monday Blues are a real thing. They really are. There is nothing more dreaded than knowing that the weekend is coming to an end and that it’s back to the grind. Mondays are dreaded by almost everyone (I mean just look at that eCard), but they are a sad reality.
That’s why I’ve decided to start what will (hopefully) become a weekly post called Uplift Monday. I will share an uplifting story or video that will get your week started on the right foot.
For my first Uplift Monday post, I’m sharing this amazing video from ESPN: J.J. Watt’s Remarkable Friendship
This 295-pound defensive end for the Houston Texans is nothing short of inspiring; his character is, as ESPN says, remarkable. He gives of his time (which I doubt as an NFL player he has much free) to take care of these kids and to look out for them. He has brought back joy to these children’s lives after so much was taken from them, and he is a hero to be admired.
There is nothing more special than giving of yourself to help others. While sometimes we may not all recognize that we have things to offer to the world, just remember that you do. Even the smallest acts of kindness do not go unnoticed – a simple smile, a hug, a compliment. No matter how big or how small your giving ability, remember to give to those in need. Albert Einstein put it best, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”
Have a great week!
