It's finally....Monday?

Am I nuts?? Did I just say, “It’s finally Monday”? Yep, I sure did!

Mondays do not have to be so darn dreadful. As I see it, we dread Monday’s because it is the ‘back to work’ day and many people do not like their jobs; I was one of them until recently. I take that back, I loved my job but disliked the companies unethical decisions. With this said, I did not enjoy Mondays.

Even after my departure with the corporation, I didn’t always accept Mondays. I was in an ugly routine and Mondays were like a negative spirit haunting me, but then something hit me over this past weekend; I was having a wonderful time with my nephew who is visiting from Portland, I received a generous request from a fabulous Etsy shop owner (and best sister in the world) for another custom order, my oldest son only needs ½ credit to graduate this year but chose to complete the full year so he can walk with his class, and my youngest son is exceeding in his honors classes. WHY THE HECK WOULD I NOT EMBRACE MONDAY? It is just another day in our lives, right?

What if we worked the weekend and had Monday’s off? Would we dislike Tuesday? What if our week began on Wednesday? Who cares! You woke up, didn’t you? Yep, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now ;-) So, love your Mondays, love every day you wake up…because you can!

Happy Monday!

Oh I love this posting and it's SO appropriate!! I think we got into that terrible habit of hating Monday's from the years of living the corporate life but what a blessing it is to to cherish each day!!

LOL! Amen sista!! Great post :) Thank you for letting me see the errors of my ways. :) I am one of those people who hates Mondays, and just like you said...its because its back to work day. But I don't *hate* my corporate job---its quite easy to deal with. So I have no more excuses. LOL! Have a good one Laura! Congrats on your kiddos. I know you're proud!

I actually love Monday's as well, but must admit I did NOT like them at all when I worked the corporate life - yuk.

Here's to a beautiful & productive week. May we all prosper :)
