You Decide How You See It – Motivational Monday!

Welcome to Motivational Monday! A safe space to lay it all out on the table- no one is perfect, and every one needs a boost now and again. What time is better than on Monday, that sunny little bright spot of the week? Pull up a chair, keep an open mind, and let’s start this week right!

The video embedded in this post is an excerpt from a  commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College by the late David Foster Wallace. It is an secular talk with Christian implications and  a lot of positive psychology thrown in. It is about how to get out of the ‘rat race’ and consciously decide how you see even the most mundane and annoying situation. Enjoy, and happy Monday!
