Every Monday, on Facebook, it begins… the Monday memes.
Sure, they are amusing. But I also realized they are all so negative.
And I thought to myself today… what if we decided to LIKE Mondays???
So, in my #input* style, I googled to see if I could find any POSITIVE Monday memes. And on the first hit here was only one. ONE.
My #achiever, #responsibility and #communicator then decided it was on me to start the positive Monday mindset myself! Here are some reasons I choose to like Mondays:
*a new week is full of new possibilities
*all my favorite parts of the week (my chorus class, no-school-Fridays) are ahead of me to look forward to
*another chance to accomplish the things I didn’t get to on the previous week
*this is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it (Psalm 118:24)
What if, we tried to help each feel GOOD about mondays? What if, on purpose, we put something into Mondays that made it easier to look forward to? For me, it could be as simple as planning some weekly after-school-fun, a special breakfast item, a phone chat with a friend…
What would YOU put into your Monday?
