I love the little cartoons and pictures of puppies/kitties about hating Monday – they are all so cute. Ok, I’m a sucker for puppies and kitties anyway so maybe that isn’t a good reference.
In honesty, I used to not be a fan of Mondays because I was in the trap of looking at them with dread. Oh no! The weekend is over. Oh no! A new work week. Oh no! I have to get up early.
Let’s face it, sometimes my weekends are busier than my work week. I love what I do so I do not dread going to work. Lastly – I never have been nor will be a morning person.
My mom told me that she and my step-dad are working the polls tomorrow. I told her that was awesome. She told me they had to be there at 5 am. I told her to have fun with that.
I am now okay with Mondays, we have a pretty good relationship now. The reason: I stopped calling them Mondays.
I now refer to them as Mulligans.
They are a do-over!
We get to start the week fresh, new and decide how we want the week to go. What a great opportunity. Every single week you have the chance to make it better than the last or go in a whole new direction.
How great is that?
So here is to Mulligans! How are you using this opportunity to do it over?
