Ready. Set. Go. GET your Monday on.

One week until Wimbledon! Tennis, with its insane combination of physical excellence and mental strength, is my favorite sport of them all. I’ve watched Mr. Nadal pull out a win from a five set match for so many years, I’ve come to regard him as a personal hero of sorts. He’s also such a gracious loser that his wins seem all the more gratifying.

This excerpt from an interview with him gives me a little insight into what it takes.  Happy Monday to you.

“You have to be self-critical, accept what you have done badly… but you shouldn’t be too self-critical. You have to be self-critical, without all the drama of it. If not, you enter into a spiral in which nothing is ever enough. It’s a good mentality, but it shouldn’t make you unhappy with what you do, but rather make you ambitious.”  — Rafael Nadal

Brake Time.

It’s one of those weeks where there’s so much to do that the finish line looks murky and hazy and slightly impossible. But I’m also coming down with a cold, so everything feels a little murky and slightly impossible. 

Goals for this week: Buy some more kleenex. Unplug my ears…and take little breaks along the way.

It’s Monday, so don’t forget to take a couple of deep breaths….and stretch. 

I follow a fair share of style blogs, and this video is from one I recently started following.  It’s called Advanced Style and focuses on older women’s approach to everyday style. Ruth, who is featured in the video, is 100 years old, and looks great even while doing some of her stretches.  AND she’s wearing earrings. 

Hope your week is off to a good start.
