 Just once, I would like to wake up, turn on the news, and hear...'Monday has been canceled, go back to sleep....

Monday morning.  Not everyone is usually very happy and most alert on this day.  Maybe we did a lot of partying on the weekend.  Maybe because it's the beginning of another work week or for whatever reason.  I know that today we are a bit slower than usual to get going.   
Last night we were at a concert and that ended quite late.  We saw BB King live in Fort Pierce, Florida (was not great).   A few drinks, some good food at a very beautiful restaurant on the water, a long drive home...well the day started out a bit slower than usual.  We are a bit slower, but Brutus being Brutus woke us up at his usual 6am.  We just stayed in bed for a while longer.
To perk up my day I will begin with a delicious  Fruit 'N Juice Breakfast Shake.  Ingredients are simple and easy to come by.
So go ahead, just kick start your day with this delicious smoothie.  Makes everything seems so much better and fade into the background.


 1 extra ripe, medium banana
3/4 cup pineapple juice (I like Dole )

1/2 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Combine all the ingredients into the blender.  Blend until smooth.

Before you know it you have a delicious breakfast.  Total time to make is 5 minutes or less.  No extra preparation needed.  Now just sit back, relax and enjoy.

Remember always take some special time for yourself and do something to make you feel good.  For me right now my special feel good is my smoothie.  Your precious time will become normality instead of a rarity if you make a habit out of it. Plan to have your special time daily, on certain days of the week or even just once a week.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit....
