Could have been Miserable Monday - but decided to make it a Merry Monday!

Monday, February 11, 2013

Do you ever say or have you heard people say "It's a Monday!" Like Monday's are the worst day and the more they say it the worse the day could be. I started my sparking day off well this morning and then walked into my job where I couldn't even get to my desk before I was bombarded with issues that had to be fixed or dealt with right away. I hadn't even sat down my purse and I had that thought the dreaded thought - "So this is how my day is going to be" with a super heavy internal sigh. I fixed the issues thrown at me and finally got to drop off my stuff and start my day an hour later. I decided to take a quick break and open up my SparkCoach. Got to the Coaching video and saw Stage 2 across the screen. I started to listen and of course work jumped right back in and everything was in chaos. Difference is that in that small second that I saw Stage 2 my internal brain (without even discussing it with me first) decided that I was happy and this was going to be an awesome day! After that no matter what came my way I could quickly respond, enjoy the people I was working with, and even take some things off my never ending list. I made my Monday Merry even through a Migraine.

My head hurt so back by the time I got home, I honestly thought I shouldn't have been driving because my head was pounding and my eyeballs felt like they were going to pop out. I came in the house crawled into my bed to get away from the lights and sound but realized my goal, I had to check in with my SparkCoach. That was almost three hours ago and I've eaten my dinner, played with my dog and spent an hour sparking...

My day feels truly complete, my headache is now just a dull throb and I feel like I have the energy left to do a couple hours work before I have to be back at work at 4am....

Sparking is really changing my perspective and my attitude. I didn't think I'd see it this soon, but it's definitely happening....

So if you are thinking you are having or had a Miserable Monday take a deep breath and repeat after me.... Merry Monday Self and everyone else!!!

Keep Sparking!!!
