I know no matter how much i try to convince you that Mondays are cool you probably won’t believe me. However, I do hope that you guys will at least agree that they don’t have to be awful. It’s all about the perspective. Yeah, the weekend is over and for most of us it is back to work and school, but its also the being of a new work week. Can we agree that there is something positive about the idea of a new beginning?
Instead of feeling down about Monday lets look at Monday from the following perspective:
Mission – Create a mission for the week.
Opportunity – What opportunities do you foresee for the week?
New Start -If things have not been going your way, use Monday as your fresh start and take a new approach.
Do Over – Did something go wrong last week? Do you need to create a new impression? After a few days away from the situation give yourself a Do Over and start the week with a different attitude.
Action – What have you been putting off. As fellow blogger Janeane would say, Monday is the perfect time to Take Action Now.
Yolo – You Only Live Once. Life is too short for all work and no play. On Mondays we set #MakeItHappenMonday goals, but they don’t have to be all serious and business like. Monday is a great day to plan some fun things for the rest of the week.
What is your Mission for the week? Are there any unique Opportunities presenting themselves this week? Do you need a Do Over, New Start, or to Take Action this week? What awesome, fun, and joyful plans do you have for the week, YOLO?
P.S. Don’t forget to take action and purchase your tickets to the Chasing Joy Brunch & Learn, #CJBL!
I like your acronym for Monday. Funny, I have been working on a similar idea for a post. Friday isn't the only day that should get some love, you know!

I'm actually a crazy person who (somewhat) likes Mondays because they are a fresh new start. Where Sundays are about worship and taking a break from worldly things, Mondays I am sometimes impatient to get caught up on everything that needs to happen.
On the other hand, waking up for Monday can sometimes be a chore.
Thanks for the idea to set a weekly mission. I have lots of goals running, but maybe choosing just 1 main goal will help (since doing everything all the time can get to be a overwhelming.
