Monday Blues

It’s now scientific to have Monday blues. Yep, you know have a legitimate reason to feel like crap on a Monday, irrespective of how your day is like.

But really, why do most people hate Mondays?

According to scientists, there are numerous reasons why people hate Mondays; the obvious ones are that Mondays reminds us how we were less than healthy at the weekends – we tend to over-indulge – so we ‘face the music’ on Mondays; also the day reminds people how much they hate their jobs.

Personally, I think it’s a waste of time beating myself over the foods I eat.  I must admit, my weekends are for indulgence, I eat less healthily on weekends and I make sure I enjoy every mouthful😊 and if I go overboard, I make up for it during the week by exercising more and eating more salads and vegetables.  Whatever happens at the weekend, stays at the weekend.  End of. 😊

There’s a quote that goes ‘If you don’t like your life, change it’.  That saying might seem simplistic because you have bills to pay and responsibilities, but it’s very true.  You are responsible for your own life and the decisions that you may.  Don’t give that power to anyone or anything else.

If no one is holding a gun to your head to stay in your job or your career, then you CAN change it.  It may not happen overnight, it probably shouldn’t happen overnight, you should take time to make your plans to prepare (but not procrastinate).

So, what do you like doing?  What brings you joy?  What are you passionate about?  Who can you serve and bring value to?  How can you make it a career or business?

Who has done it before?  There’s nothing new under the Sun, so it’s very likely that somewhere out there, someone is generating income from it.  It may mean you’ll need to do research, study or take a course, but there’s always a way.  If you take time out and start planning.

You’ll find that once you plan and taking small steps towards making your dream a reality, you’ll feel better.  It won’t be easy but it’s definitely NOT impossible.

If you want to make money, you have to serve people, bring value to them.  The more people you serve, the higher the value they place on what you have to offer, the more money you make.

I know of someone who’s job is to taste chocolates; yes, chocolates!  I also heard of another person whose job it is to check the quality of hotel resorts.

So nothing is impossible.  Your life is too precious to be controlled by Monday Blues.

Can you imagine what your life would be like if you’re living your dream; jumping out of bed every Monday, every day rearing to go?

I am living my dream; yes, there are challenges but I’m loving my life and you can too 😊

Have a fabulous Monday, whatever you’re doing.
