Why is Monday such a bummer day? It is the one day of the week I dread because I have to drag myself out of bed (at 4:45) and get back in the working routine.

The bliss and non-structure of the weekend is gone.

Last night as I was preparing for Monday I wondered if I could try to change my attitude and mindset.  Try to look at Monday as a fresh start; as an opportunity to adopt a new “start the week with a positive attitude” attitude.

I could give myself a morning treat – buy a flavored coffee, a breakfast sandwich, or maybe purchase a lunch instead of bringing it like I always do.

Maybe I could pay it forward and help someone else’s Monday morning start off with a smile.

As I began to brainstorm my ideas, I saw the options of making Monday a day to look forward to are endless!

We never know how many days we will have on this earth. We have to look at each day as being just as important, if not more important, than the one before it. Mondays are no different.  Can you imagine how much better your week could be if you started if off on the right foot?  Even if you are tired and have a lot of stuff to face this week, (I am right there with you) find your motivation today and let it carry you through the rest of the week.

  1. Mondays CAN be rough, but one thing is always true for me. No matter what kind of mood I’m in, our little angels yank me right out of it. Sometimes I’m in a bad mood, but they just will not be denied my attention, so I have to pull it together. Conversely, I can come off a weekend feeling great, and within moments they have sapped all my energy and left me with an overwhelming desire to go back to bed.
