“Being positive won’t guarantee you’ll succeed. But being negative will guarantee you won’t.” -Jon Gordon
Something that has always annoyed me is when someone says, “I hate Mondays” or “Mondays suck”. What’s wrong with Monday? It’s a fresh start, a chance to make your week great, and another day to accomplish something (even if that means all you did was breathe today). Why start off your week with a negative tone when you can choose to be happy and make every day count. Monday doesn’t suck…your attitude does.
Of course I’ve had days where I just want to lay in bed and ignore my responsibilities-every one feels that way at one point or another. But it’s how you push through it that counts. Life is too short to sit around and be negative all day. Everyone is going through something. You might as well appreciate what you do have and take what you’re given. You never know what tomorrow will bring.
Whenever I’m feeling negative, I always do something that makes me smile or laugh. Pictures of baby animals or funny quotes usually do the trick. Sing, dance, or do something childish (not immature) and it’ll change your outlook. If you don’t choose to be happy and get out of your negative attitude, you’ll get stuck there. Trust me, I’ve been there. Life is great and you only get to do it once.
So next time you find yourself “hating” Monday (or any day for that matter) just smile and choose to be happy. Change your attitude and I guarantee your day will become better!
