Already this morning I've seen the "Manic Monday" and other posts about how horrible Monday is for some. This always baffles me because I look at Monday as the beginning and a perfect opportunity to decide what kind of week you are going to have. I look at is as a perfect time to calibrate your week.
I know it's the first day after the weekend but that is the perfect time to move past your previous week and start over on your goals and desires. Maybe you didn't get done all that you wanted to get done in the previous week; Monday is a perfect day to decide to finish it. Maybe you experienced some challenges in the previous week or over the weekend; Monday is a perfect day to move past those challenges. It's a perfect day to decide that you are going to have a productive week. It's a perfect day to decide that you are not going to have the same kind of day or week that those around are you are having. It's a perfect day to decide that YOU are going to live the life that you want to live.
If you have traditionally dreaded Monday and looked at it as the worst day of your life, I implore you to recalibrate and change your outlook on Monday. It's the beginning, a clean slate and you and only you get to decide how your week is going to go. Regardless of how those around you are behaving, choose to be happy today. Choose to be in peace today. Choose to be an example of what Monday can really be.
In luv and dessert,
