"Why me?" we wail in despair. Because my darling, it's Monday.
Ah, Monday! That most gloriously loathed and maliciously maligned beginning day of the week. We complain, whine, snivel, bellyache, rant, rave and shout at the heavens in our frustration. "Arrrg!" We piratically growl, "It's Monday!"
Why not switch it around?
"WHAT???" you gasp in horror, "Have Monday's be a GOOD day? Surely you jest?"
No, my stereotypically steeped friend, I do not. What if instead of dreading the coming of the work week, we viewed it as a new beginning? Viewing Monday as a gold mine of opportunities and exciting challenges, instead of the traditionally despised dragging of ones self back to our weekly servitude of the common man, changes everything.
So, can a small (for some people, a large!) attitude adjustment really make such a massive difference? You bet your bahooky it can! Having a positive attitude makes all the difference in the world. It's like the difference between having a lint covered, old lollipop that you found in your pocket . . . after you washed your jeans, and having someone give you the key to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory and telling you to go nuts. It changes everything.
Life is what you make of it, which means the world is your apple. You get to decide if it is a golden one. . . or if it is rotten and full of worms. You are the only one with the power to decide how your life is going to turn out, not me, not your mom and most definitely not Dr. Phil! (And yes, I do have a marked dislike of the man, but since hostility is my friend and ever cheerful companion, it's OK.) ;)
Go on, join in the revolution that is Monday! Grab your superstitious fears and pessimistic attitudes with both hands, smash them into a ball, and get ready for a whole new ball game! You make the rules for the New Monday, so let your aptitudes shine and prepare to dazzle them with your best game face and lightening pitch.
Join the mayhem and I'll see you at the after party. ;)
