In case you didn’t know it, it is Monday again!
Yes, the least favored day of the week for some, and for others the start of something new and exciting.
I personally have the lines of “Manic Monday” going through my head.
Only parts because even though I have a scary good memory, it seems not all songs made the cut in whatever area of my brain in charge of that so I get just loops of parts of a song. Very irritating I can assure you.
For example, “it’s just another manic Monday… oh oh. I wish it was Sunday… oh oh, cause that my fun day. My I don’t have to run day… oh. Oh. Just another manic Monday.” Yeah maybe a line or two more and that is IT for the song. And it loops. Over and over again.
I have read and been told in order to have a good day you have to visualize your day the previous day and it will be good. That works out as well as my poker game, about 50/50 that I do it often because well I have to keep hope alive.
Somehow I feel like I lost part of my weekend somewhere and I should get a few, say 12, more hours tacked on to my weekend.
I am not selfish I would share that extra 12 hours with everyone!
I don’t mean I would want to be with others per se, but I will share the extra hours with anyone who needs them.
The rest of you may place yourselves on pause.
I would take that time and spend half the time with the boy and the other half with blissful, good sleep!
Maybe 15 more hour instead of 12 so I can have 3 more hours to clean up around the house!
Heck why don’t we just add another 9 hours and call it an extra day!
Then I could spend more time with the boy, sleep, clean and write!
Yes a whole other day!
There has got to be a way to get one of those!
Can you imagine?
“Yes I need an extra 24 hours please. No, no emergency I just need an extra day I am not ready for Monday yet!”
But even as I write Monday approaches.
Closer and closer to the midnight hour.
And then it happens.
Monday is here and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Alarm not set and you’re late? Blame it on Monday.
Traffic got you running behind? Blame it on Monday.
It gets such a bad reputation just because it is the start of the week!
Everyone loves Fridays but Mondays? Not a lot of the Monday love so it seems.
Even when I try to “visualize” and make myself thing happy thoughts about the upcoming week, I can’t help but think “Oh Monday. We meet again. How will you play this one? Can we have a good Monday please?”
Because I sure could use one of those!
If it has to be Monday then it needs to be fabulous.
Only I have the power to make it so.
No matter what happens, I have to work to make it happen.
I feel it’s worth it.
So here’s to you.
Let’s make this Monday worth it!
Have a fabulously graceless Monday my friends!
