Greetings Desserters! Today is our favorite day and I can tell you that already it has presented some challenges! You guys know that I don’t buy into the “Blue Monday” stuff and I can’t positively say that it’s because it’s Monday that challenges have presented themselves but what I can tell you is that it has taken some serious self-talk to get me to this point of calm! LOL!!
This morning when I was attempting to post this I had a fight with my internet connection and for a couple of hours it stubbornly wouldn’t comply with my attempts to connect rendering me helpless in communicating with y’all on this blog! After starting and restarting my computer a couple times and troubleshooting the connection I am finally back in business-literally!
Talk about frazzled! I have so many things running through this head of mine it’s a wonder I can keep up with it all! My kids got up earlier than usual-during the time when I’m usually working (no internet remember?)-while I was trying to reestablish my relationship with my internet connection and I had to do the mommy stuff.
But here is what I wanted to say today and hopefully encourage you if Monday is challenging you too: I realized that it is the beginning of the week and yes, challenges present themselves and we usually chalk them up to it being Monday. But I have learned that Monday reveals the strength that is within us! It reveals the skills within us that we may not have known that we had (didn’t know I could fix my internet connection all while tending to four kids all with different “demands!”)! It reveals to us that we do indeed possess the ability to set the tone for how we want our week to go! We are in command of our happiness and Monday is the day to decide what that will look like for you!
I hope that you have decided that your week is going to be just what you want it to be and not let the challenges of Monday (or any day) prevent you from experiencing the joys (Desserts) that life has to offer you! When the challenges arise shift your focus to what matters to you most and as I learned today, that is what you will bring forth!
Magnificent Monday to you and remember to always take time to live and enjoy your life FIRST; always Eat Your Dessert First!
