Why I Love Mondays

I woke up today in Adelaide. Next Monday I’ll wake up in Oaxaca, Mexico. The following Monday I’ll be in Miami and the Monday after that, I’ll be back home in Singapore.

Buckled Sky Over Adelaide

I woke up today in Adelaide. Next Monday I’ll wake up in Oaxaca, Mexico. The following Monday I’ll be in Miami and the Monday after that, I’ll be back home in Singapore. Four Mondays, four different cities, in four different countries.

With a schedule like that it’s kind of easy to say “I Love Mondays!”

But, the truth is I love Mondays even when my schedule looks more boring and predictable. To me, how you feel on Monday morning is a complete reflection of how you feel about your life. If you hate Mondays, then you hate the choices and circumstances of your life.

Which is why it’s never made sense to me when people bemoan Monday mornings, whether on line or in real life. Sure some people might not have it within their power to change their situation. But, if you have enough wealth to own a smartphone and are connected enough to use social media, then you actually have a lot of power to change your life.

After all, the average working person will face at least 2000 working Mondays. That’s a lot of misery and passive aggression to invest in if you are committed to hating Mondays.

The people that inspire me all love Mondays because they are open to loving every day of their lives. If what you do fuels your passion, your loves and your values, then why wouldn’t you love Mondays as well?
