“Monday wake up and fill the day with enthusiasm” ~ LaWhimsy
This is literally my Monday To-Do list (among others). I like Mondays. I mean I really, really like Mondays. They are a fresh start to a new week filled with untapped potential and possibilities and that is exciting, promising and utterly delightful! Even as a child I didn’t mind the end of the weekend and the return to school and my weekly schedule (I would dread tests or bullies or the like, but never the day). Once my formal schooling was over Mondays took on an even more pleasing tone since I was the creator of my life (job requirements and other obligations notwithstanding). Sure this may make me something of an eccentric but I often wonder why? Why do so many seem to dread the start of a new day, a fresh new week? Why do so many malign and disparage Mondays when they could be celebrating and enjoying the day for what it is – another beginning? I sometimes wonder if it’s just because it’s become such a collective “go-to” and if one were to stop and actually reflect on how they view Monday and why, they may find that with a few tweaks, Monday could be a truly good day and one well worth liking and, dare I hope, looking forward to. Even if that’s not the case, I just know that I like Mondays and no matter the ridicule or side-eyes that may produce, I shall go on enjoying and looking forward to Mondays and spreading the joy I feel because of that!
Namaste ~ Ella
