Today is Not Yesterday

My weekend didn't go quite as planned. We had been looking forward to taking a day trip on Saturday. I was looking forward to it all week long. The kids and I went shopping and had everything packed and ready to roll. Then...We ended up not being able to go, and it actually ruined my entire weekend. But today is Monday. It's a new week. It's a new day. Usually Mondays are the dreaded days, but they are also days for a new beginning, being the start of a new week. So this is what I say on my Monday:

Do you sometimes let disappointments get to you, even though you know you shouldn't? 

To lighten my mood, I found this infographic on Valentine's Day around the world. I thought it was fun, so I decided to share it with you.

How was your weekend? 
One good thing about my weekend - We got some much needed rain in Northern California. We watched some movies and had hot chocolate.
Are you ready for Valentine's Day? Did you learn something new from the infographics?

Sorry you had a bad weekend. I'm having a bit of a down in the dumps day, but trying to think 'tomorrow is another day' like Scarlett O'Hara! : )

Fun to read! I like that in Finland and Estonia it's called friends day. I always send out cards on Valentine's day to friends :-)

I'm so sorry that your weekend was ruined. I've had plans like that fall through too and it's the worst. I love your positive attitude for Monday though!

Good for you, sometimes things just don't work out but life is just too short to dwell on it, you really do have to live in the moment. I try to do this and seize every opportunity.

I'm sorry you were disappointed with your weekend. I love the wise words you are posting today! Our weekend was uneventful. It was the first one in a long time we did not have any commitments, so we got lots of chores done around the house. -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

Just like you said - it is another day and another weekend will be here! I missed my Vegas trip as week two weekend ago because my husband had a flu so I know the feeling! I wish you sweet and sparkly week ahead!

I love that quote about today not yesterday. Every new day is a fresh start.

I've always loved the traditions of the Japanese during Valentines day because it gives me a chance to get creative with my chocolate making. It's such a fun idea.
