It's Monday, of course. Perhaps you enjoyed a nice picnic in the park yesterday with some friends. Perhaps you threw the frisbee around and resisted contemplating your eventual death for a few hours while sipping on a cold alcoholic refreshment. Perhaps you laughed, told stories, remembered the good times, forged new memories. But now it's Monday, of course, and the crushing reality of daily existence is bearing down on your shoulders.
Perhaps you need a bit of inspiration. Perhaps you need to feel like anything's possible (even though you know that's not true, deep down). Perhaps this video of a brave tiny dog scaring away two bears will remind you of that brief moment of time in your life when you felt as if you truly were powerful, as if you really could accomplish anything, as long as your mind was in the right place.
