That Wonderful Monday Morning Feeling

If you look on Google Images you will find lots of these .....

... cute little pictures extolling the hatred of  Monday morning.

It's funny but even when I worked in a real job, that is going out of the door wearing 'work clothes'  to another establishment, as opposed to what I do now ... dragging on scruffy jeans, bobbly jumpers and not seeing another human face for hours, just furry and feathery beings demanding feeding, cleaning out, exercising etc.... I still loved Monday mornings.

Each one gives you a fresh start, a whole week ahead of hope, new horizons and opportunity.  Do with it as you will it's there for the taking.  Google Images where these pictures all come from is full of negative Monday morning images, with just a handful of positive ones.

I must say I like the positive ones best.  I've always found that it's your attitude to things that dictates how they will affect you.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Ten Good Things About a Monday Morning.

1. You woke up .... some people simply don't!!

2.  A fresh new week lies ahead of you.

3.  It's a chance to start something new.

4.  Or a chance to finish something you didn't manage to get finished before the weekend.

5.  Time to start a new diet, the old week and the bad ways can be behind you.

6.  Last week's mistakes can be put right.

7.  It could be time to start a new Challenge.

8.  Or start a new book.

9.  Tell yourself that ' this week you will ....... ' insert whatever you would most like to do.

10.  It comes round every week ... how wonderful is that!!

Sometimes all it takes is a positive outlook to make the world a better place.  

So if you woke up this morning and your glass was half empty .... go put something fizzy in it and fill it to the top, let those bubbles re-invigorate you and get you fizzing with life .....

... and if it was an alcoholic something fizzy ... go lie down ... Tuesday will be here a lot sooner than you think!!

  1. Sue, I totally agree with you about Mondays. I love getting on the blog as I usually take Sundays off with no post and no comment. A gift I give myself. So I'm ready and anxious to read about all my friends on the blogs, like yours, and find your blog very uplifting this morning. I was in a good mood, now even better!

  2. Being a shift worker Monday for me is always the day after my SRD's (Scheduled Rest Days). Sometimes my Monday is a Friday and is 8 days away and sometimes its Saturday 5 days away! I always try to be positive despite the attitude of others. In the words of my dear departed mother 'you can always find someone worse off then yourself '.

  3. Well said! I love Monday mornings with the promise of a fresh week ahead. I live them even more now that I can mostly please myself in a Monday, going about my days tasks at my own pace. Bliss!

  4. I agree well said, it's all in the attitude. I have a bad attitude today....LOL

  5. Love this post. Completely changed my way of looking at Monday mornings! I'm going to try and be this positive next Monday morning!

  6. I'm with your Sue, I often lie awake on a Sunday night, excited because a new week is about to start! Great post!

  7. Great blog, I love your positive spin on it all, very refreshing for a Monday, and absolutely agree, fresh start Mondays are great :)

  8. Such a positive spin on a Monday morning. I must admit I quite enjoy mine. A new week always means new adventures.

    X x

  9. The first one is spot on! Go for it! The biggest thief in the world is procrastination. Great post Sue. Xxx

  10. I agree, but only since I quit work!!

  11. Have to say the since I left teaching, waking up any day is a joy. Any of the other jobs I have had since, from mucking stalls to shop work to being a Nanny were much less stressful....and being retired now is best!

  12. From Margie in Toronto - Well said - and thank you for the pep talk.
