Fly Rabbit Press  has created a motivational poster without the mush! We could use this by the back door, front door, right next to the bathroom mirror or just about anywhere we may catch a glimpse before heading off to work.

Even when work is right in our own home it may sometime feel like the last thing you want to be doing. The sky is blue and the sun is shining but you're stuck in the office all day? Just look up at this bright and humorous poster and you just might catch a glimpse of the good in your day!

Without a doubt, "Today will be a good day".
