Monday Monday….


monday-syndrome4     Ahhhhh!!! It’s Monday yet again. Seems like they come so quickly. I am thrilled I am slowly getting more followers. I do encourage comments. I love to hear what people think. Anything I post I open up for discussion. I enjoy the give and take of it all.

Normally I post my blog in the mornings. Blame it on Monday.  Why is it that we dread Mondays? You do a google search for cartoons about Mondays and you come up with tons of them. Most ( not all ) have the same dreaded Monday theme to them.

When we wake up late we blame it on Monday. When the day it’s hectic we say well it’s Monday after all. When we have a crummy Tuesday we say “Oh it’s Monday part 2″.  Is there an origin somewhere or a precedent set saying Mondays are bad?

I honestly don’t know. Some people suggest dread of Mondays is a form of depression. Really? Have we psyched our selves to believe that weekends are good and Mondays are bad so we inevitably have a Monday plagued with bad luck or is there truly something to this Monday curse? I will say yes Mondays can be hectic after all it’s the first day of the work week, but I ask this one thing. Isn’t our day what we make of it?

Yes, luck is what you make of it.  There’s no luck fairy out there.  Also there is no Monday jinx. Every day is a blessed day.  Sometimes we lose sight of just what those blessings are.  Next Monday morning I challenge everyone to look at it in a different light. Tell yourself this is the begging of a new week and a time to start anew . It’s not the end of  weekend but the begging of a week filled with hope and promise.

” This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. ” Psalm 118:24
