There is no way around it, they just do. They suck. I always feel like the weekend wasn’t long enough, and about the time you are caught up on what little rest you could get in that weekend, it starts over again.
Today I happen to have a partial day off for doctor’s appointment so I am still lying in bed at 8:40 watching the GMA’s after Oscar party. I am slow drinking coffee and trying to mentally prepare myself for the day ahead. I am tired and suffering from a fun hangover from the past weekend, so not only do I feel drained, but I feel like I could stay in this bed forever.
Who am I kidding?
I can’t stay in the bed on the weekends, and I can’t stay in the bed on the weekdays. Saturday I woke up at 4:30 in the morning and wrote one of my midterm papers, then went to the Mardi Gras Parade and went out on a date night that night and saw Isn’t it Romantic. Which, by the way, SAVE YOUR DOLLARS. That one can definitely wait for Redbox.
Sunday, I was able to sleep until 9:30 which was like sleeping for 12 hours! I got up, went and did some shopping, came home jumped in the hot tub and then watched the Oscars. That was all I did this weekend, and today I just want to say that Mondays suck.
For all of my friends out there who are struggling with your Mondays, I want to recommend the Breathe app. There are joy and gratitude meditations that you can do which to me makes my Mondays a little more tolerable. You can also journal your feelings on a daily. Some of you have been reaching out and telling me that you are struggling, and I think we all do at one time or another. This is one way that makes me start my day full of thankfulness and gratitude even for those sucky Mondays, and all of the other days in between. Breathe and be thankful with me today.
