By now most of you who have followed me for any length of time know that today, Monday, is my favorite day of the week! There’s just something about the beginning of a new week and deciding what that week will look like that is very appealing to me. I started (yes, I said started at 4:00 this morning!!) it with some of my favorite desserts: Prayer, meditation, writing and then I’m going to take a hot bath with scented candles and music! This is indeed a great day!!
Most people dread Monday. I’m guessing that for them it symbolizes everything but happiness. They have to return to work, to school…to that which they dislike. But I beseech you, if that is your disposition on Monday, to change your perspective and begin to see Monday for what it really is: The beginning! Your opportunity to set the tone for the kind of week you will experience.
If you could have your “dream week” what would it look like? Now, I’m not talking about fantasy; being able to run away from you job and sip drinks on the beach all day (although that doesn’t sound bad either) but I’m talking about the kind of week you would like to have with everything that you have to do. Would you get along with our coworkers? Your boss? Would your relationship with your significant other or kids be what you would like it to be? What would your ideal week look like! You do know that what you think about you bring about right?
So, decide that instead of a day that you dread, decide to have a day that you love. A day that brings you “happy.” Its all up to you you know! You may not be able to change the challenges that this day or week will bring you but you can change YOU! You can decide today that no matter what the day brings you, you will see it as an opportunity to evolve! To grow! Because that is what they really are: opportunities disguised as challenges.
So, I encourage you to Eat Your Dessert First: start your day with some music you love, reading, meditation, dancing, making luv…or whatever it is that gets you to “happy” and let the rest of the day take care of itself!
