I love Mondays. Call me sick, but it's true. It wasn't always like this, but I am now.
Monday is a day for frolicking in the early morning hours before my daughter gets up.
Monday is a day for checking in with my Spark Buds to look at fun Christmas pics, catch up on reading blogs, and gain inspiration and strength from their examples.
Monday is a day of new beginnings. This weekend, I ate hot chocolate and cookies on the North Pole Express train ride to see Santa with my Mom and daughter. I had Eggplant Parm and Spumoni at a Ma and Pa Italian Kitchen in Globe, Az before we left. I had fudge on the drive home. That, combined with a week of grazing on Christmas treats at the office leaves me with an extra 5 pounds to show for it. But Monday is a day of new beginnings.
On this Monday, this day of new beginnings, I'm going to treat my body like a temple, and gift it with things joyful, healthful and beautiful.
On this Monday, I am going to look for and acknowledge things that I am grateful for throughout the day. Starting with my Spark Community. You guys keep me honest, and I am totally present to the POWER and LOVE of this community. Thank you, and Happy Holidays.
