Motivational Monday: How Could You Not Smile At This?

 

Happy Monday everyone! I know Monday’s are a slow day for most people so I thought I would post something to quickly boost your spirits.

You no longer have an excuse not to smile today.

Some tips for a great Monday:

– Smile and nod at everyone you see today. The smiles will be spreading by the end of the afternoon.

– Set goals for your day and for your week so you know the kind of effort you’ll be putting in for the next 5 days.

– Make plans with friends for tonight and the rest of the week. Give yourself a light at the end of the tunnel.

– Remember how lucky you are to have what you do. You guys are one of my happy things 🙂

I hope you all have great weeks ahead of you!

 

Questions: What’s one thing you’re looking forward to this week?

Comfy and Supportive Ballet Flats. WHAT?!?

You all know this blog is based on the fact that I’m poor and, therefore, creative with my money. But sometimes, it’s just worth skipping Goodwill and going straight to the new stuff. This is one such instance.

I work at a health center where I’m on my feet for up to 8 hours a day. However, I also have to dress business casual. This means ballet flats or something like it and ballet flats suck! They’re terrible for your feet, your posture, and they just plain hurt. So I began the hunt for a pair of plats that were comfy, cheap, and last a very long time. I found them!

Believe it or not, these are Crocs! They’re comfortable, lightweight, and they conform to my foot the more I wear them. I’ve always shunned Crocs because they’re not the most attractive shoe but now I get it. I love them. I’m usually a size 9.5 women’s or 41 Euro. Crocs only sell round number sizes. I ordered a 9 and a 10 from DSW online, then returned the 10 because the 9 fit perfectly! And, get this, they’re only $35. Heck YES.

I’ve been wearing them for a week now and, while there’s a little bit of a breaking in period, they’re the most comfortable ballet flats I’ve ever worn. And I get at least one compliment on them per day.

Here’s the link to DSW order form:  http://www.dsw.com/shoe/crocs+women’s+springi+flat?prodId=246807

Hope you’re all having happy days! Smile, they’re contagious 🙂
