Five Little Grins Link Up [Week 33] + Giveaway

5 Little Grins


We'll go ahead and say it: Most people think Mondays suck / are the worst / should die a fire-y death. I'm sure you get the picture.

We've all had our fair share of bad Mondays and bad Tuesdays and just plain ol' bad days. Instead of focusing on the bad, what if we focused on the good things?

What if we focused on the little things that made us smile today, yesterday, last week? Could our whole attitude change? In time, would we find that we're having more good days than bad?

Cassandra, Paulina and I would love for you to join us on our weekly link up counting at least 5 things that made you smile in the last week. We could start our Mondays on this positive note!

Of course, this is all about encouragement, so hop on over to some other blogs and leave a positive note and make a new friend!

  1. Congrats on the new job! That's fantastic. Me, I love Mondays, but Tuesdays are the WORST.

  2. Aaaaand I want to grow my following...and my revenue. Mostly the revenue. The following as a means of growing my revenue. I like the interaction too though! I just have priorities...?

  3. I'd like to grow my blog...period. I need to be more consistent with it and not worry about what others might think. Just write about things I love.

  4. It takes a lot to get over that feeling, but once you do it is amazing!!

  5. It would be lovely to be able to sustain ourselves with just blog revenue!

  6. Oh no!! Why are Tuesdays the worst? I hope there is free food!!! I used to have a bad day most Mondays but, luckily that is in the past!

  7. Thank you! Happy Monday to you too!! I love the Red Balloons for Ryan t-shirt too! They're actually having an insta-sale on Indie Nook today :)

  8. So glad the jobs are going well!

    Thanks, I am going to head over there and get one!

  10. I don't know, but they always suck for me. Today I just anticipated it and took some lorazepam though and it's been a great day. Very calm, went to my thing, where there was no free food OR drinks despite the tickets costing money (I got it as a PR thing, so whatevs) but there also wasn't a lot of mingling, so I was able to just sit there listening and taking pictures and then leave. Phew.

  11. My favorite trick for bad days are to make them incredibly amazing fashion days. I'm glad that it turned out a great day for you!
