Thank God it’s Monday

Now beats never

Any day you wake up

Is a good one

Any day you wake up pain free

Is a great one


New day

New week

No time to be mild

Nor meek

Out there are fortunes

Begging to be made

Ain’t no stopping

Till we get paid




Now it’s time for inspiration from another source AKA our Quote Du Jour, today by way of American novelist Amy Ruth Tan on the occasion of The Joy Luck Club author’s 72nd birthday.

“You have to be your own person. You can’t let people’s opinions determine how you think about yourself. There’s a difference between identity and self-identity.” — Amy Tan
