Like many of you, despite my gallant efforts, there are times when I can’t help but sense the monday morning blues. [For me, that day is actually tuesday, as monday is my day off. But, you get my drift] You know the ones… where the dread of another 5 LONG days has you discouraged and longing for friday, already!
Sometimes its simply the after math and “unwind” from a weekend full of hype, excitement and activities. Others, it’s simply my longing for another day of peaceful rest and relaxation with my hubby.
While the monday morning blues are common and certainly not a “clinical problem” they have the possibility of stifling us. From what you ask? ACHIEVING GREATNESS!
This question is:
How do we combat these feelings? How do we break their chains from holding us back this week?
It’s easy! 3 simple step you can do right now, regardless of where you are!
- Reflect on your weekends memories
- Acknowledge them as blessed and
- Use that joy to fuel your actions staring NOW!
I plan to join you in this simple yet powerful exercise each and every monday, regardless of how I’m feeling. Why? Because my weekend memories are the moments i’m most alive. It’s a fabulous tool for being intentional about counting my blessings and truly savouring their powerful gifts.
This weekend we celebrated my husbands 30th birthday. It was a packed few days of celebration that included fine dining at our “special place,” facing fears at an adult adventure park, kayaking adventures and a sunset beach party with our closest friends and family!
I feel incredibly lucky to have a man who still brings out those old butterfly feelings in me, akin to our very first dates together. [6 LONG years, that feel like a lifetime ago] He truly is the most compassionate, serving and joyful man I’ve ever known.
So tell me, what weekend memories have you feeling blessed?!
Comment below. I’d love to hear them!
