It’s Only Monday In Your Mind

“Monday sets the tone for the week. Be a beast today.” UNK

I’m no better than you.

I’m no taller than you.

I’m no sexier than you.

I’m no luckier than you.

I’m no (insert your favorite comparison/excuse here) than you.

And due to recent events, you know…that Corona thing…we’re kinda all in the same boat.

Which is why it’s hard to fathom why folks still wake up and lament Mondays.

I’m not gonna try to understand…

I’m not gonna try to change your mind…

I’m not gonna try to motivate you in a blog…

It’s simply a difficult thing to wrap a mind around — the whole dislike or disdain of a day. And if you really think about it, ONE out of SEVEN days, or 14% of your week, is PRE-spent in dread.

Holy guacamole.

That’s a tough one to swallow if you ask me.

That’s no way to live IMHO.

So alls I’m gonna do is leave this here…right here…for you.

You can click, read, and grow.

Or…well…deal with it.

Now choose.

Don’t be a crybaby.

Thank you for the gift of your attention.
