Nope, I didn’t always love Monday’s, and I sure as shit didn’t always wake up ready to slay, to set the badass tone for the week…
But something happens when you CHANGE your mindset from “waaaaah, the weekend is over?!” (sidenote: I DO still sometimes feel that way simply because I LOVE having more time to spend with friends, family and my pup!) to “Okay, it’s a new week, it doesn’t matter what did or didn’t happen last week, let’s focus on THIS week and making it count!” – when you make that shift, Monday becomes this platform, this canvas for all sorts of badassery!
So get to it! Who’s slayin’ today?
From the book I am currently reading/hosting a book club group for, is this awesome rudder quote!
I find it to be 100% true and accurate. When I actually got over my “I’m sleepy” state of mind, and SAW how starting the day off with the right tone actually changed the whole mood for the day, I was hooked. That’s a really powerful, empowering feeling, and I find it motivating every day to chase that, mornings when it just sometimes doesn’t come together, it is a HUGE shift in energy.
I let that fuel me – nothing like heading into your office, getting there at 0730, and already having had done your grueling workout, showered and gotten dressed, drank your superfoods, done your affirmations, driven into work (26.2 mile drive) while pep talking yourself (cannot listen to audio PD so I do my own!), AND done some personal development.
So basically, no matter what happens, some of the crucial components? ALREADY DONE!
Do you agree with this perspective?
Yep, that’s how I feel. I used to hate Mondays. They signified the weekend was over, and the workweek was just beginning. Of course, this was back BEFORE time started flying by and workweeks seemed more like workmonths.
It’s different ever since I became part of a fit-fam.. now I look forward to Mondays, it is the ONE day I refuse to skip a workout. Monday sets the tone for the whole week, and its important to start it off on a good note!
So thank you, Monday 🙂
