Mondays Made Better with a Cup of Tea

Some people do not feel excited on Mondays. Maybe because it's the first day of the work week or school. Traffic in the city has always been terrible on Monday morning. We are tired but we are just about to start the week. I suggest get inspiration from people who make this day more challenging. Wake up everyday with a grateful heart and spirit. Our friends from the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf partner with some of today's inspiring personalities to make Mondays magnificent.

Mondays Made Better with Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf

Know your purpose says Magee Lilianna Manahan, Industrial designer and founder of design company Studio. Magee has gained international recognition for her imaginative art. Achieving success in the creative industry requires long hours of disciplined work, as well as a constant search for artistic inspiration. Manahan meets this challenge every Monday by frequently returning to her purpose. "A fellow designer told me he 'renews his contract' every year with God, his ultimate boss so that he knows what he is doing is where God wants him. I do the same. Whether I'm on an early morning road trip to check on samples, or concentrating on drawing my home accessories and sipping on tea, work is such a delight and an adventure because I know this what He wants for me!"
