The times may be stressful and overwhelming, but sometimes we can find a pleasurable moment or thought. Keep hanging in there!

Monday’s are tough, but we are tough enough to handle them all on our own.

I just try to take away what I can from every situation, to always keep learning. Life is hard. Life is humbling. I do all I can to keep it simple.
– Mariano Rivera
Rivera’s advice is great advice for difficult times. The situation we’re all in is tough now, but we’ll learn from it. Keeping things simple is one way of dealing through our daily difficulties.
Ted Williams in 1949
Just keep going. Everybody gets better if they keep at it.
– Ted Williams
Finding the current situation tough to deal with? I’m certainly finding it hard to deal with working from home full-time. But, as Ted Williams said, we just have to keep going and we’ll get better at it!
