Every day is a Monday and I love it. – Jocko
“Monday rolls around and…” you fill in the blank. From a young age, our minds were trained to think in a certain way. We learned, copied, and picked up habits from our parents, teachers, other adults, friends, and peers. Both positive and negative things. We see and we learn, we imitate. As we grow older, it’s our responsibility to change the way we think (especially if it’s negative), to continue learning despite how much and what we know, and to allow ourselves room to be challenged and uncomfortable.
For one, I’ve learned to love Monday mornings despite the social norm. It’s just crazy how we can hinge on the day’s name to determine our attitude. The days of our week are there to help us keep track of the calendar, not our moods. When Monday rolls around, a brand-new day starts (thankfully!); when Tuesday starts, a brand-new day starts, and so on. Enjoy every day as if it’s the last. Do what you love and be around those you love. Live FULL of every day, because tomorrow is it’s own.
