Monday Monday So Good To Me

Monday Morning Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

A routine lifestyle trains us to look forward to the weekend. “Thank God It’s Friday,” right? On Monday morning, we can’t wait for Saturday to come back around, so we can break up the monotony of the routine. On the weekends, we can sleep. We can watch cartoons and play outside. We can finally garden, and spend time on our hobbies.

We can catch up on our lives!

We have a temporary freedom on the weekend, that gives us something to look forward to during the week. Our routines make the weekend a magical time. Saturday and Sunday become days we can go to the beach, or a day we can catch up on chores. We can go camping on the weekend, or we can relax and do nothing. We can throw parties, and celebrate events that happened during the week while we were too busy managing our routine.

Why is it that Monday mornings have such a bad reputation? Why are so many people resisting the beginning of the work week? Why is it that on Sunday nights, we dread waking up early to go to work in the morning? We all wish for a longer weekend and more time to catch up; more time to enjoy our lives. What is Monday, anyway? I mean, I can see it on a calendar. I know it’s every seventh day. I know that a large percentage of businesses start their week on Monday. However, I don’t think that it was created for these reasons. Wait ― it was created. It didn’t always exist!

So, when and why did we all decide to agree with society and say this is an okay way to live? Why can’t every day be Saturday? Even in our adult lives, we forward to holidays that give us an extra day off, so that we can have a three or four day weekend. We then go back to our routines and accept it as a way of life. People say, “Man, I wish that we worked three days a week and had four days off every week.” But then, no one does anything about it. It is rare that anyone takes the action to make that “dream” their way of life!

Positive affirmation about creating your dream Monday Morning

“I am free to create my own schedules and routines.”

Let’s look deeper at that. “A way of life.” That implies a choice, doesn’t it? The saying is not “a ‘force’ of life” or “a ‘law’ of life”. No, it’s a way of life. There are many ways of life. The way of life for some people is a corporate life. Others prefer to be tattoo artists. Some are outdoorsy types, and others like monster trucks. There are choices we’ve made throughout our lives that define who we are. It’s our way of life. Why then, are we allowing society the chance at determining our way of life? Why do we accept that a 40 hour, Monday-through-Friday routine is okay if we are internally rebelling against it?

I want to encourage you to seriously ponder this thought. I want you to succeed at recognizing that you do have a choice. You can make your life happen the way you want it to. You can have three days of work and four days off, if that is what you want.
