Mondays and I have always had a love/hate relationship. I am basically in love with new beginnings. I love New Years, I love the New School Year, I even love the feeling I get when I can flip to the new page in my calendar. But poor Monday has totally gotten neglected in that way. I don’t generally love Mondays (unless it’s a long weekend then I dig them.)
I know shocking. (Please read internet sarcasm.) I understand that I’m not putting anything completely earth shattering in writing here on my blog today. I just got to thinking about the fact that isn’t it funny that I love beginnings yet I dread Mondays? It’s the beginning right….well I guess technically a calendar week begins on Sunday so maybe that’s the problem 🙂 Kidding. Kind of. But it’s the beginning of the WORK week, which in and of itself sounds a little daunting. So maybe I’m being too hard on myself. Either way though I want to take back my Mondays. So here I sit (sneezing my face off- thank you allergies!) in my kitchen writing a blog post, while miraculously my oldest child is still sleeping (at 9am!) and my baby is down for his first nap.
It’s official ladies and gentleman, I work from home and I am self-employed. I was really freaking terrified to take this leap. I’m still terrified and am grateful for the wonderful trait of denial that I have, because it’s really coming in handy ;). That being said no matter where you work, or who employs you, you too can embrace Mondays. I’ve been trying to really change my outlook lately on a lot of things because as time flies by I realize that life is indeed much too short to pick a crappy view of the world. WAY TOO SHORT.
So really like many things in life. Monday is a choice. Do you see it as a moment of despair? Or as a new beginning filled with hope? I pick hope.
So happy Monday to you and yours!!!
