Well, hello there, Monday.
How the hell are you?
Let’s just say I am superglad it is summer and I have a flexible schedule and today is even more flexible than usual. This morning the alarm beeped at me at 6am and I got out of bed, turned off the alarm, went and made coffee…then, I climbed right back in bed.
I had an absolute horrible night sleep.
I don’t get it. Normally, I sleep great. This weekend I worked my tail off….I painted for two days with my husband, I cleaned the condo in OC and I walked every day. I should have been tired enough to get a great night sleep. But I did not.
So today, I went back to bed. Then I got up and took my Q to work and came back home. Normally, I would try to get right into work after taking her but today I needed to come back home.
I needed a do-over.
And today, I had the opportunity, the time and the desire for a do over.
How often can one actually get a do over?
I cam back home, had breakfast and a shower and now I am sitting down with a cup of coffee and writing this blog. I had big plans for today and even though the day started rocky, I am positive I will hit today’s goals.
What are today’s goals?!?
- start PIYO
- drink lots of water
- eat mindfully
- apply for 3rd job
- play around with my new guitar
Oh yeah, and I still have work but today we are taking the kids to the movies to see Hercules in IMAX. Not a bad day to need a do over. I also know, I can’t always take a do over morning when I need one so I have to take advantage of days like today, now, while I can.
Food, a shower, coffee and I feel so much better.
Like a whole new person on a whole new morning.
I can do this!
I feel more confident starting now. It is amazing what a few hours do to change an attitude. I MUST remember this for next time. I think I may have finally found a way to deal with Mondays. I won’t always have a few extra hours but I can take what I’ve learned today and scale it down. I bet 30 minutes would do the trick. Oh yes, I am sure there will be a next time…..Mondays are rough.
How do you deal with Mondays?
