Morning Monday... late starter...

image



Morning everyone how are you? I don't know about you but I found it really difficult to get up this morning. Maybe because of the gloomy fog which has returned once again to Blackburn or maybe because after 4 days off my body was just thinking "I could get used to this" but whatever the reason it is annoying.

Now I am sat here already feeling slightly panicked. I don't have to start work till late today but I told myself I'd go in early anyway - an unnecessary pressure I had put on myself. I can feel that Knott in my stomach that is trying to tell me "it's Monday morning and you're already behind" - something which just isn't true.

I can put a lot of pressure on Mondays. If I've had a bad week, it's not that I wait till Monday to shake it off, but I do feel comforted by that "new start" feeling. Even if I've had a good week Monday rolls around and I want to use that momentum to keep going, to do better.

Hopefully if you read these posts you'll know that this isn't as stressful a habit as that makes it sound. I use Mondays to check in and keep positive. If I didn't do this I'd probably very quickly loose sight of what is really important and I'd end up a much bigger ball of stress and worry. All of that is true of this Monday too, except this week I want to tell myself and you, that no one late start is defining of a week or a life.

So I am a little later into the office this morning than I had originally planned, I'm still working late, and if I take some time now to breathe and keep myself feeling refreshed after my days off then the work I do this afternoon will be better than any I try to rush and complete now.

I guess what I am trying to say is, as always, don't give up. I can be my own worst enemy, and the smallest thing can make me feel defeated. That knot in my belly can make me physically sick, but only if I let it.

Monday isn't over yet, and even if it is by the time you're reading this, don't credit one day with too much power, instead credit yourself.

Live life & let the late starts go every now and then x

  1. So many of my Monday's are stressed filled but are motivating none-the-less. I just need to take one from your book and try to relax. I hope you had a great Monday and Tuesday!

  2. I love your positivity! I am the same way and put way too much pressure on Mondays. But it's good to remember to credit ourselves and frankly just enjoy the day

  3. Exactly, if we start seeing Monday as a day of celebration it would be a much better start to the week! Imagined if everyone looked forward to Monday's like they do Fridays x
