Okay, I guess I'm truly one of those weirdo kind of dudes. Why? Well, I actually don't hate Mondays. Yeah, I know, weird. In fact, I really kind of like Mondays. See, I am weird.
I'm a big fan of trying to be very positive, especially on Mondays. I love believing that something wonderful is about to happen at the beginning of every new week...Monday! This should be the spirit of every Monday. Believe and hope that something good will always happen. When you wake up on a Monday morning, feel happy, inspired, and motivated to make the best start to the week. Monday is the perfect day for a fresh start, so make something great happen for yourself today...Monday.
Okay, so maybe last week was not a good week for you. However, you could wake-up today (Monday) and say, "Nope, not this week. I will rise and fight!" For me, rising when I have fallen is one of life’s simple pleasures. In others words, I'm saying, life may have kicked my butt last week but I'm back for this week and I will win! A positive attitude is a choice and it can be easy to do and can always make you feel great.
1 Absolute Awesome Cool Way to Rise On a Monday!
1. Make someone very happy on a Monday
I love waking up very early Monday morning and asking myself, "Self, who and how can you bring great happiness to on this day?" To be 100% honest with you, asking this question early on Monday morning has seriously transformed what used to be the Monday morning blues for me. Now, I love Mondays!
In life, you get what you put in. When you make a positive impact in someone else’s life, you also make a positive impact in your own life. Do something that’s greater than you, something that helps someone else be happy or hurt less. I promise, it will be an extremely rewarding experience. One you’ll likely remember forever.
We have all heard the saying, "All's well that ends well." I love to say, "All's well that BEGINS well." Listen, Mondays need all the help they can get to help get the week off to a good start or a good beginning.
I'll never forget going to a Starbucks one Monday morning and paying an extra $20 and asking the barista to please tell the next 5 people behind me that their coffee drinks are free! However, I had one condition. The barista could not say who paid for their drinks. Let me tell you, while I was waiting for my drink to be made and hearing the barista say to the customers behind me, "Oh, your drink is free today. A kind person paid it forward and bought your drink, happy Monday!" Wow! This was so rewarding to me! This, was a way cool way to start a Monday!
Now listen, I don't have an extra $20 to throw down each and every Monday. But when it comes to kindness and blessing someone else and me as well, I don't need $20 to give away each Monday.
Think about it. What are some really cool, kind and caring things you can do on a Monday to get your week and someone else's week off to an amazing beginning?
Your turn...I'd love to hear what you'd like to do or have done to get your week/Monday off to a GREAT start.
