What's your (Monday) mantra?
Mondays are notorious for that "feeling" of not wanting to work or feeling a bit deflated. I thought it was time to inject some positivity into the week for us all! I tend to like quotes or phrases that have stuck with me to keep me going through the tough times..to remind me of what could be in the right mindset.
I've got to admit...most of the things that crop up in my mind are Harry Potter quotes (I can't help it...) but the one that really has stuck with me since I was 14/15 through the tough times in education and other bits and pieces is: per ardua ad astra
This latin phrase is attributed to Virgil, and translates as "Through adversity to the stars". I have featured this in each one of the three of my personal statements for university and it is the quote at the front of my PhD thesis.
Are there any words that stick in your mind that keep you going?
