It seems strange to me that Mondays seem so much harder to get up for than, let's say, "Fridays", or virtually any other day of the week. Perhaps it's the sobering reality of the days that await us that cause us to hope for this day to simply move on.
However, a friend of mine used to tell me whenever I found myself in a rough stretch, or frustrated, "This too shall pass".
As I think about the challenges in life that you and I face, it would be good for us to remember this little phrase. When my day starts spiraling out of control, it helps me to remember that life is full of various ups and downs. It's as if there is an eb and flow to life.
Perhaps, it is helpful to remain focused upon the goal of our lives, rather than the mundane or frustrating circumstances that we find ourselves in.
Thanks for letting me share some thoughts and vent about "Mondays."
