Monday, Monday.

Happy-MondayMonday, Monday. Here we go again with another work week. I am getting this week started on the right track with low blood sugar numbers, a healthy weight and a rested body. So where will a week bring me? What opportunities will come my way? Life can be such a wonderful place when we stay open to all of the positive things around us. Take Monday morning for example, when in a world where Mondays have been given such a bad name as it marks the end of a weekend. But what if it were an opportunity to move into a work week feeling completely recharged because of the two days of mental rest before it. What supercharged, positive energy can you bring into your workplace today? By just changing your attitude about Mondays is there a possibility that you could spread this energy throughout your workplace? I know one of the emotions that I am bringing to work today is that of gratitude. I have a place to go to where I can contribute my knowledge and skills and earn some money. A chance to spend some good quality time with people who dedicate their time at work each day. Mondays really are not so bad. Many people are not working right now and would kill for a bad day at work vs not working at all. Those of us lucky enough to have a place to earn a living are the lucky ones. So what are you bringing with you to work today?

At 53 years old I am starting to realize how life changes both physically and emotionally. I strive for a life of simplicity. I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.

    Attitude is everything. What’s beautiful is each of us has the right to decide for ourselves whether it shall be positive or negative. We then get to live with our decision. Make it a great Monday!

    • Yes, I read that in a book I read but cannot remember the name of. The statement was this, “If I say something that upsets you is it my fault that you feel upset, or your fault by choosing to feel upset”. Really makes you think about choices that we rarely think of.

  2. Love this post! It’s all about attitude.

    I am loving your positive vibes! Perspective makes such a difference. The great thing is that we can easily change our perspective by just making a deliberate effort to view life through ‘positive’ lens. Great post…Wishing you a great Tuesday, Wed, Thurs. Fri. Sat and Sunday too!

    Right on the button. Nice post. I was thinking perhaps more fruit and veg in your diet though.

    Hi, I stumbled across your blog while working on an Adobe Illustrator project in class. I too am Type II diabetic. It is an every day battle, but as you state, fitness is important for keeping those sugar levels down. Being outdoors, simplifying life, sleeping well, de-stress. Good for you! Thanks for posting!
