Did you ever notice that the people who have grand plans for reform on New Years Eve every year are the same people who also take to your timeline every Monday morning to whine and complain about what a dreadful day it is? Curiouser and curiouser! No?
Other than being perfectly drained by the hatred of Mondays I got to thinking about why people hold one day in every 365 in such high esteem but can’t seem to recognize the first day of a new week as a similar new leaf/fresh start and all those other cliches in which we start anew.
I must admit. I harbor a terrible secret…
I LOVE MONDAYS!
I don’t have time to dwell on how miserable Mondays are instead, I’m wishing they had more than 24 hours. I get up at the crack of dawn and I struggle to get everything done by midnight! It’s the day I brainstorm for the blog, write a few posts, create my images and think about what I can do at the weekend.
I’m not sure anymore if a large portion of the public just really dislikes Monday or if yet again social media has created a nice little bandwagon to jump aboard! I’m going to go with the bandwagon on this one as thinking about such a high level of negativity from countless people, week after week is frighteningly overwhelming! Just HOW is it that bad?
Monday is a blanket of fresh snow, a mirror still lake, a brand new journal all yours to disturb. Why not make the disturbance worthwhile?
How To Get Through Monday
- Remember that every week, it’s someone’s last Monday.
- Put your positive pants on and set the tone for a brand new week.
- In the space where you usually voice your dismay, write down a goal for the day or the week.
- Hustle to make it happen.
- Instead of the usual coffee you need to survive, try a cup of positivity. If that doesn’t work then I know another cup you might enjoy.
- Handle it. You’re a grown a** adult.
- And if you can’t do any of that then close your mouth and make Tuesday a better day!
Food for thought:
What happens when New Years Eve falls on a Monday?!
What a scary thought!
