You are welcome back to another edition of my series of I love Mondays! I trust that you and your family are doing great.
I think it is important to remind us about why I love Mondays after many months of flaunting it on this blog space.
Since Monday is the first working day of each week, it is not usually the best day that majority of people look forward to. I have had colleagues who turned up to work feeling wasted due to the busy weekend which they had had. I have hung around folks who (all they did) was moan about how miserable they felt about this blessed day.
Being one of the most optimistic people in the world, I had no issues with any day of the week. In my opinion, there are not enough days for me to condemn any. I had to find a way to accommodate that one day which tended to be the most dreaded. Candidly, I have always looked forward to those popularly recognised new beginnings (such as New Year’s Day, 1st of each month, my birthday and the start of the school academic year in September) at various points in the year. I then wondered why Monday was not part of that list because it is the start of a new week only that it comes round more often than all the others.
Monday signifies new, fresh, start, beginning, opportunity, opening and second chance. Although we can not fully forget the past, we can be deliberate about how we view each new beginning we wake up to. Anticipate only the best outcomes. Remind yourself that many others who would love to be here are not due to no fault of theirs.
Waking up on a Monday morning helps me know that God is not done with me yet. I have been granted another opportunity to carry on, improve upon, alter, amend what I began in the past or start afresh. The week or weekend prior to this day may have been tough. Nevertheless, you made it alive and well. Use it to your advantage. Set the tone for the rest of your week. Declare the positives that you wish to see occur.
These ordinary but powerful mindset and dispositions have radically transformed my entire life for the best. I do understand that we were all wired differently and would not see things from the same perspective. However, we all do desire to make progress and see the best outcomes of our endeavours.
Be reminded that whether you think that you can or cannot, you are correct. Say what you see until you see what you say. If you can see it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand. Cultivate a positive attitude towards all circumstances. It is much easier to be happy than to not. I love Mondays and nothing will change that to the glory of my God.
You are urged to enjoy today as a gift. Savour each moment as you look with hope into what the future holds for you. Give yourself time to get used to having a different but better feeling about Mondays. Here is to a fabulous day and an incredibly prosperous week. May God’s peace be with you and yours until I come your way again. Amen
