Why do people (and Bob Geldof?) “Not Like” or hate Mondays”?
For as long as I can remember, I have recollections of people “cursing”, both metaphorically and literally speaking, Mondays, I never quite understood why and, truth be told I do not know or “get” why, as yet!
My experiences with Mondays have always been sooo different, compared to what other people have shared with me in past.
Those who know me (I hope you get to know me too!) cannot understand why I, on the other hand, looooove my Mondays.
I see Mondays as a new beginning, new opportunities have been granted to us and we are able to “regain” control over our affairs.
After a couple of days off, i.e. Saturday and Sunday, it can be a challenge and quite difficult to bring oneself back to that mindset of getting things done and getting our priorities right!
Though, when you look forward to starting a new chapter in your month or year, Mondays have the potential to become our best allies. When you look forward to a new week and by that I mean, Monday, you become excitable, hopeful and inspired to take action and, have a great week.
It is not uncommon to hear people doing a countdown to their weekend, almost as if they were running away from their week or themselves; sadly, it is a different story altogether, when it comes to a Monday.
I start to wonder, if people were more “open minded” about Mondays and what they have to offer, would they be welcoming more opportunities and a new approach to the week ahead?
Continuing on what we talked about yesterday, language and communication, when we vocalise we “hate” Mondays, we wish it still was the weekend, or beg for one more day; is it fair to say we are setting ourselves for failure?
Think about it? If you have to do something you “hate”, you are not going to enjoy, no matter what.
But, if you looooove what you are going to be doing, if you are welcoming it into your life and you are excited, the results well, they will speak for themselves.
I truly hope you have found this brief and short blog of some use to you.
Try it, in fact do it, next Monday, I invite you to be excited about and notice the difference it creates in your week and who knows maybe even your life.
Till next time (which is tomorrow BTW).
With all my love.
From my heart to yours,
