In my Monday blog series, I am sharing why we should all embrace our Mondays.
So, we meet again. While I consider it a blessing and an honor to get to see you once more, there are times when you appear to be an annoyance. With your smooth operator tendencies, you easily make it hard for me to love you. When you come around, there are times when I feel emotionally null and void. I’ve tried to love you. I’ve tried to get into you. But you’re like that ex-boyfriend who claims that he has changed, only come come back into my life with the same ‘ole drama that made me drop you in the first place.

I am going to be happy today. I am going to be positive. I am going to seize every opportunity to be great. I am not going to let you or anyone else detract from my mission. You are going to get the best of me, from morning until night.
I know you think I am going to count you out. Phone you in. Let these next 24 hours go by the wayside because I am feeling some kind of way about you.
You are wrong.
I am a beast, so therefore, I am going to be a tyrant. I am going to exploit you and make you succumb to me. Everything on my to-do list will get done today and I am not going to take no for an answer.
No one is going to pull me into their Monday tirades or anti-start of the week rhetoric. I will rise, damnit! Like a Phoenix, I will rise!
You’ve taught me so many lessons. Good ones and bad ones, but anecdotes that will fuel me and keep me focused. Today will be a good day and this will be a good week. I will be bold and walk with intention.
Here’s to you, Monday. I am flipping this thing around. And I will love you.
You’re stuck with me.
Now let’s do this,
