Monday, Monday

by Alessandra Cavalluzzi

Poor Monday.   It’s the least liked day of the week.  So many people dread Monday mornings.  The start of a new work week.  The beginning of another cycle of the “daily grind”.  A new countdown until the next weekend.  Are you one of the millions of people who are “working for the weekend”?

It’s time to re-think Mondays.  I like Monday and actually look forward to it.  People ask me how that’s possible.  A friend of mine once asked me “so you’ve never had a Sunday night where you weren’t looking forward to going to work the next day?”, and I said “sure”.   Then came the next question “how did you get over that?”  My answer: “I left”

My point here is that the dreaded feeling has less to do with Monday and more to do with your situation.  Change the situation and your perspective will change with it.   Easier said than done?  Yes.  But not impossible.   You control your outcomes by the choices you make.   Choose to be in control of the situation.  Choose to make a change.  Choose to start over.  Choose to leave.  Whatever your choice – the important thing is that you take action.  As the famous Nike tagline says, JUST DO IT.
