The Joy of Mondays???
Yup. You read it right. Mondays can be joyful.
Every December, as soon as Christmas passes, everyone gets SUPER excited for the New Year.
Because with the New Year comes a second chance, a hope that things will be different this year. It’s a time for resolutions and goals and dreams.
Why then, if we look forward to the New Year, do we not look forward to the new week?
Mondays are the start of the work/school week. They’re an opportunity to begin anew and to do things better than we did last week. They’re a time for goal-setting and perseverance.
Unfortunately, I hardly ever view Mondays as a good thing. My mind has grown accustomed to being negative and critical and full of complaints on Mondays, so that I rarely see the good. Thus, I end up starting my week off with a groan, rather than a shout of joy.
I don’t want that to continue.
I want to look forward to Mondays– and for more than just the new Blimey Cow video. I desire that Mondays become full of energy, instead of exhaustion. Joy, instead of sorrow. Gratefulness, instead of complaints.
Three Ways I Plan on Making the Most of My Mondays:
1. Outlining what I need to get done this coming week, and start getting it done! I want to break the cycle of procrastination that is overwhelming my life.
2. Read my Bible. I find it so hard to be motivated to read my Bible through out the week if I didn’t start strong on Monday.
3. Doing one thing out of the norm. It may be something small, like going for a walk with a friend during the evening, or writing a letter to a friend, or maybe even treating myself to a cookie after dinner. I just want to have something planed to look forward to.
Bonus: Watch the Blimey Cow video. They really do make Mondays fantastic :)
How do you make Mondays awesome?
