It is Monday morning and who is up for the start of a whole new week? Songs have been written about Monday – usually not in celebration of the day, but it is an important day for many people. For many of us it signals the start to a new work week. And if we do not enjoy what or where we are working, Monday can seem almost painful. And how many times do we think of Monday as the end of our beloved weekends?
Today I invite you to think about Monday in a whole new way. Monday is actually my favorite day of the week. I made it that way.
Monday is a day for me to collect my thoughts, gather my energy and focus in on my work. I get up a little earlier on Mondays to fully enjoy the day. I use the extra time to meditate on where I would like to go during the week and what I would like to accomplish. I always make sure to add some thought on how I can adventure out during the week and do new things. And I spend some time just being grateful for all of my blessings.
You can make any day of the week your favorite. You can make all of the days of the week your favorites. Spend some time thinking about how you can put more enjoyment, happiness and wonder into your day and week. Notice that it is all a choice. If you do not enjoy your work, think about what you would enjoy doing and put some focus and energy there this week. Make sure you add in some fun adventures – it doesn’t have to be expensive: A walk on a path you haven’t taken yet, a picnic in the park, watching the sunrise instead of the sunset. Any day can be beautiful when you are living consciously in your moments.
