So how did you start your day today?
Did it begin with throwing the covers over your head and saying “Noooo It’s Monday” or did you embrace the day like any other day?
I am always amazed at how many people I hear complaining that it’s Monday and they can’t wait until Friday, usually it is from people traveling on the train, people I meet in the lift, even FB posts that I read from certain friends and yes I’m sure you know who you are.
Let’s think about this and let me ask if you are one of the types of people that complain because it’s Monday? If so, does that mean you don’t enjoy the five days from Monday to Friday? If however you are in the camp that treats Monday like any other day then I would imagine, like me, it doesn’t make a difference what day it is.
The key is to try and enjoy every day, no matter what day it is. Admittedly the days when we can do as we please are undoubtedly the best but I like to look at the days when my life is restricted as the days that allow or enable me to do all the things that I love to do and enjoy. For example, I have to go to work each Monday, it enables me to have the life I desire and to do the things I enjoy.
So when my alarm bell goes off at 6am on a Monday morning, whilst I might not like it, I thank my lucky stars that I actually have a job to go to. I then enter what I like to call the gratitude zone and believe me when we start to be grateful for all we have in our lives the world becomes a much happier and easier place to live in. I choose to be happy on a Monday, in fact I choose to be happy and to like every day of the week.
Monday’s are the beginning of a new week, fresh and shiny, I like to regard them as Magical Mondays. We can start a new week like we do a new year and set ourselves little goals or targets if we so desire. Also if you are lucky enough to have had a weekend off then the chances are you will be feeling refreshed from having had a weekend doing the things that you enjoy with friends and family.
Mondays are also magical because there is the anticipation of the week ahead and the next weekend when we get to do it all over again. I therefore like to treat my Mondays with love and respect.
Also a few weeks ago on my way to work and making my way across London Bridge, imagine my surprise when the pavement had been tiled with rainbow colours with the caption at the end of the rainbow “Love Mondays” which is the photo I have used for this week’s Blog. Let Monday’s be your rainbow. If you would like to know more about this project it is called Spark your City and more information can be found at http://www.sparkyourcity.com. It certainly brightened up my commute.
I would love to hear from my lovely happy readers something that they enjoy or even look forward to on a Monday and I’m sure if you think hard enough you will discover there is quite a lot to love about Mondays.
Wishing all my readers a very Happy Magical Monday and a tremendous week full of opportunity and of course, love and happiness.
