Yes, it’s Monday. And I’m grateful. I am alive. I have a job. I have a roof over my head. I have food. And yet I hear the plaintive complaint, “Oh (insert your favorite expletive here) , it’s Monday again.” without fail. Why do we echo this refrain? Are we truly this ungracious? I cannot ever remember my dad complaining about it being Monday. Maybe it’s a generational or cultural thing? Maybe it’s group thing, I’ll complain because everyone else is complaining? I just don’t understand it. Perhaps it’s because they want to conform to the social norm of complaining. Maybe it was their upbringing. I was brought up to appreciate, to be positive, to share and to gracious. If they were not, they can make a choice to still behave in a gracious manner. I urge you to take the challenge below at least once and hope that you would continue it for the rest of your life. I would love a comment about your challenge. If you write it in your blog, post a link a too it here.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to not only have a gracious attitude on Monday’s , but to challenge those that down on Monday! Greet them with a rousing, “Happy Monday!” Let’s change the world, one Monday at a time. Have an #AWEsome week!
