For the Monday to Friday five-day workweek worker, Mondays can be the most dreaded day of the week. Waking up on a Monday, it can be hard to wave off the feeling of hopelessness and despair. The thought of another five days shakes you to your core, and you would give anything for just one more day of weekend. If this is you, you’re not alone.
Maybe your dreaded day is not Monday. Depending on your schedule, it could be a Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday–whatever that day is that commences your workweek, the feeling is unfortunately the same.
This quote, by Germany Kent, helps bring hope out of despair on your Monday. Yes, the ideal scenario is to do something you enjoy that makes you excited to start your workweek. However, that’s not the case for everyone on the planet. So until then, what if you start that dreadful day seeing yourself stronger, more fulfilled, happier, and healthier by the end of the week? Think how you might actually become stronger, more fulfilled, happier, and healthier not only by the end of the week but by the end of the month or even the end of the year.
The bottomline is, your thoughts as you begin your workweek can either set the tone for the week in a positive or negative way. Heck, the week might turn out to be hell; but having set the tone at the onset, it might feel a little less terrible. Moreover, it might lead you one step closer to the life you want to lead and person you hope to become.
