A bunch of Mondays was something I used to say when I had a bad week. Nowadays I love Mondays. I love every day in fact, but Monday is a day full of possibilities for the week. “The world is your oyster” as they say…. or “where there is a will there’s a way.
Squirrels don’t care if it’s Monday or Saturday. They want to eat bird seed and they don’t give up easily when the opportunity is there. They are opportunists, as are most animals when it comes to food. They see the possibilities in life.
People are like caged animals, something we created for ourselves.
Why did we divide the days into weeks in the first place? Cavemen went by the rising and setting of the sun (I surmise.)
People hate Mondays because it heralds the beginning of ANOTHER week, also called the grind.
I used to think Saturday was my favorite day of the week. I could go out shopping and meet up with friends and loved ones. There was always some party or event at night. Those were a bunch of Saturdays…
It got boring fast. I bore easily, but the one thing that never bores me is my art. Art is new every day. Sometimes it’s a struggle, but I would never exchange it for the grind.
Living life from the perspective of possibilities and joy gives existence a whole new meaning.
We can break out of the cage. First, you have to discover what you really love to do. What comes easily to you? What did you want to do as a kid or teenager?
Do more of it. Sometimes it takes courage to choose a new path, but you get more brave with every step. As you keep on walking you discover that it is the only way to live.
Even if you are part of “the grind” do things that fire you up in your free time. Build dreams, see possibilities.
The inventors of the past were admired because they saw possibilities and took dedicated steps towards realizing their vision.
You don’t have to be an Edison or a Tesla to have an extraordinary life (dream.)
All you have to do is to acknowledge that you have a dream and GO FOR IT!
Monday will become the best day of the week if you do. 🙂
P.S. I have some new and exiting things in my etsy shop. CHECK ‘EM OUT.
