THIS WEEK: FIND YOUR CAUSE

Let’s admit something together—our world needs a lot more love and care. Let’s accept something together—we are the only ones to do it. So what do you care about? Better yet, what are you doing about it? When we care deeply about something, we find […]

THIS WEEK: CHOOSE YOUR WORDS

The research on this certainly varies a bit, but the average person speaks anywhere from 7,000 to 20,000 words per day. Even if we played it super safe and just went with 5,000 words per day that is plenty for us to make our case […]

THIS WEEK: STOP, ASK, AND LISTEN

In the late 1970s, the first fire safety PSA became a household phrase. The campaign starred Dick Van Dyke rolling on the floor as if his clothes were on fire urging us to “Stop, Drop, and Roll!” In 2006, Elizabeth Gilbert coined a new three-word […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS CARING

When asked the question, “What do you care about?” our initial response might focus on the nouns in our life. I care about friends, family, or my pets. I care about my phone, video games, or digital devices.

THIS WEEK: CELEBRATE WHAT MATTERS MOST

2016 is over. Done. Gone. It’s on to a new year – 2017 – and we know what that means… new goals, new resolutions, and the new “us.” However, to this, we say, “Not so fast.” We want to float out the idea that it’s […]

THIS WEEK: GIVE IT AWAY

What’s on your list this year? Electronics, books, clothes, jewelry, or a new bike? More interestingly, are you feeling pretty confident that you’re going to get most, if not all, of your list? Well, a small part of us hopes you are right. It’s always […]

THIS WEEK: CHERISH LOVE

Besides food, shelter, and water, there is one thing that none of us can live without. It is something so deep and so connected to the core of who we are as humans. It warms our hearts. It lets us know that we matter and […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS CARING

At Every Monday Matters, we spend the year asking people one simple question: “If there is one word that describes what you think our world needs more of, what would that one word be?” We ask a lot of people, actually, and we collect a long list of words. And, there is a reason we do this; it’s truly in the DNA of what we do and how we do it. Because, you may not know this, but this is how we select our 12 monthly themes each year… they are words that you have shared with us when we asked you that question. Ah ha… just shared one of our secrets with you. But that’s okay, because we see this as conspiring for good. So, when it came to creating the calendar for 2016, there was one word that seemed to be on everyone’s mind. In fact, we heard this word more than any other, so we decided to finish off the year with it. So, this month is going to be all about CARING. Let’s see if we can’t slow down and get back to caring for the people in our lives. Some of them may be people we know, and some might be total strangers. Then we’re going to get back to caring for ourselves, as well. Imagine that? All we’re asking of you is to be open and to commit to being a caring force of nature out in the world. We couldn’t think of a better way to finish off the year, especially on the heels of the last few months of some not-so-caring politics. So let’s lead with our hearts, like we know we can and should. Caring matters. Join the Movement: http://wordpress-454286-1422414.cloudwaysapps.com
