For a majority of us our work weeks are Monday through Friday, and for some their work week may start on a Wednesday. Either way, we all equally dread our “Monday’s”. The funny part is, is that we always know when it’s coming. But we still find a way to use the “Snooze” button as an excuse to prolong our 5-10 minutes of extra sleep prior to the start of the almighty “Mundane Monday”. Often times scrolling upon posts on Social Media of the funny, half asleep person with crazy hair saying something like, “I’m not ready for you Monday!!!” or “Need Coffee Stat”.
Here comes a new week! No matter what day of the week it starts for you, it starts. Take a deep breath and be thankful that you’re able to see a new day. Perhaps you aren’t given the choice to decide when your week starts, but you have the choice on how you’re going to display your attitude within that 24 hour window of appreciation. Hit that snooze, or turn it off and get up! Stretch it out, yawn a time or two, hit that morning pee, dress up, drink your Cup of Joe, Protein Shake or Grass Shot, whatever you like and just get going!
But on the other hand, how could you be upset about the the fact that you “do” have a job? If it’s just a job, then find something you enjoy, grab your niche by the “balls” and do it! In life you have to take initiative or else you’ll sit and wonder why it’s not happening for you. When I suggest to grab that niche, it because it reminds me of how the Dalai Lama puts work into an interesting perspective. Don’t just do a job, actually like what you do so you can enjoy life, it’s not always about the almighty dollar.
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” – Dalai Lama
So you see, “Monday” isn’t as bad as you thought. When you find a different appreciation towards a new day it’s no longer an issue. Life doesn’t give you the convenience of looking at a calendar and seeing “Perfect Day” written within it to predict what the future holds. We go into the unknown every single day!
There’s never a convenient day to start anything, and we don’t know how it will end either. But knowing that you have an opportunity to make an impact one way or another, now that’s totally up to you. Make the new day great, rather than an issue. Of course you may run into a couple obstacles, or have a story about how crazy or awful it was. But there’s always tomorrow where your blessing starts all over again!
See, and you thought “Monday’s” were bad!
