first_imgSO TODAY IS Blue Monday, one of the most depressing days of the year. Allegedly.According to scientists, Blue Monday is not actually a real ‘thing’. However, the day falls on the last full week of January every year (though some sources claimed it was January 6 this year), whether we like it or not.While you’re probably as down in the dumps as an average weekday, Mondays are grim at the best of times. Here are a few uplifting moments to give you a boost.1. This little kid who got surgery with his stuffed wolfA problem shared is a problem halved. Source: ImgurThe photo came with this caption:Meet 9-year-old Joshua. He recently had to go in for surgery and was so nervous that he brought along his stuffed wolf. The wolf had a tear in its leg, so Joshua asked if his doctor could do a wolf surgery too. His parents said ‘no.’ But when they walked into the recovery room to see their son, they discovered the little wolf laying next to him; this time, with a surgical mask, a little cast, and surgical quality sutures in his leg. We think the entire surgical staff deserves some serious respect and love for this act of kindness.2. When these little girls gave their soccer team the best name EVER Source: The Poke3.
