How To Love Monday Mornings-Kris Cage
Many people including myself hate Mondays for many reasons. But the author loves Monday mornings. He has reasons to love Monday mornings opposite what the majority of scholars, corporate workers and the rest.
Whether you prefer Mondays or Fridays, I think you’ll enjoy the video!
My least favourite day is Sunday evening. Many people dislike Sunday evening as well, but mostly because they dislike Monday bleeds into and ruins it. I guess that’s more or less why I didn’t like it either — in high school, Sunday night meant staring down the mountain of homework I still hadn’t done. Sunday night also meant to do it to the background noise of football — and my mother cheering and screaming at the game.
But while Sunday is stagnant, Monday means movement. If anything, perhaps I like Monday because it’s a fresh-start “escape” into school or work. But I’ll take that kind of escapism, especially since I can still enjoy my weekends, over the dread of Monday morning and living for the weekend.
Grant Spanier tweeted,
“If ‘Monday’ means work and you absolutely dread it, maybe you should reconsider what you’re doing. Or reconsider how you approach things you don’t want to do.”
And then he pointed out that we should be living for Monday.
“Living for Monday means caring about what you do. It means living intentionally. It means living with purpose. It doesn’t mean your “job” is everything, it doesn’t mean you are defined by your occupation. But it means you approach life as an art form.”
You’ll love Monday once you take accountability for your life
Once you adopt this mindset, you’ll know, because it will feel like a switch is flipped.
Hating Mondays will suddenly feel as gross and unacceptable as a hangover or unhealthy eating habits if we’re trying to lose weight or bad relationships when we’ve decided we’re worth more.
And in the sense, the solution isn’t simply to “find more meaning” — it’s to build our self esteem. And take responsibility.
Grant Spanier wrote,
“It’s easy to complain and blame other people. Once you start owning your career you become responsible for it. It’s no longer the boss’ fault. It’s not the corporation’s fault you aren’t happy. Start Living and that means you need to put a stake in the ground — you have to take a hard look in the mirror and accept control of your life. This isn’t about taking control. We don’t need to take anything. We simply have to come to terms with our ability to control our lives.”
Once we do those two things — taking ownership and picking something we’re dog-ass excited about building — Monday mornings can’t feel great. Every morning feels great. Maybe not literally every day, but overall, living will feel great.
