Do You Love Mondays?
This morning I dropped my teenage grandson at the bus stop. I asked him if he was happy to be going to school, an ok kind of yes, then I asked him if he liked Mondays, and he answered NO! he hates Mondays.
I love Mondays. Even when I was in full-time paid employment I loved Mondays. It was always about the positive expectation of a new week. What new challenges would I face that would either improve my skills or improve me as a person? It meant I would be getting paid, always a good thing!
What does our attitude to Monday say about who we are as a person, or where we are in life?
I didn’t always like Mondays. There was a time in my life where I faced Monday with dread. It meant going to a job that didn’t fulfil me, it meant facing new people all the time, having to put on a mask of who I thought I ‘should’ be. As I didn’t like myself, and I was unsure of who or what I was supposed to be, I didn’t like my job and I was scared most of the time, Mondays were stressful. It took many years of discovering myself, finding out that I liked the real me, not being afraid to be me and to let the real me shine that took away the dread of Mondays. Yes I still had to go to work, yet it was done with a whole different attitude.
If you face Mondays with a sense of dread, of hating where you have to be, who you have to be, then maybe it is time to ask some questions. What is it I really want to do? What is it about Mondays that I hate so much? What is it about myself that I hate so much on Mondays? Why do I fear making the changes in my life that would mean every day was a joy and something to welcome?
