The Monday just gone has now been named “Blue Monday”, something I must confess I’ve never heard until this year, but it was supposedly the most depressing day of the year. Personally, I had a great day Monday. No dramas. No tears. No pain. But of course, Twitter was flooded with negativity, complaints about lives and stories of the terrible things that were occurring that day. It was the attention seekers dream but for most to witness, it was just awful. If anyone had stayed on Twitter long enough on Monday they’d have probably required 5 hours in a dark room with 10mg of valium, a bottle of Gordon's and a visit from the Teletubbies. The truth is, we all have bad days. The bad days aren’t confined to specific dates throughout the year, it’s just life and things happen. January is apparently the most depressing month of the year so you might be sat at your desk pleading with yourself to stay awake, force a smile and actually do some work. But it can’t be so bad can it? At least you’ve got a job! If you think you’re having a bad day at the office today, at least you’re not…
