Here we are again, Monday, magical Monday, if you want it to be, how did you start your day, on a good foot or a bad one ! You see this is down to you, yes you, it’s another one of those things that we need to take responsability for !!
You see, it is truly down to you, the minute we open our eyes and take that first stretch, still under the warm covers are mind starts, we can either sigh heavily and just think of staying where we are, dreading the day ahead, or, we can really stretch breath deeply and amaze at the great week we have before us, wondering what wonderful opportunity is going to present itself to us, what great person are we going to meet and all the fantastic things we are going to learn, what challenge will we face and love resolving, the pure satisfaction we are going to feel, not to mention we are alive to live moments we will never forget. Now if on the other hand we start to think of the job we dont enjoy with the people we share nothing with and have no interest in mixing with as they have nothing to offer us anyway,the problems we need to confront and that nothing new is going to happen ……….You can see for yourself this is like day and night, so you have to decide do you want the light and sunshine of the day or the cold damp air of the night. Even if you dislike your job and everything that goes with it, you can still see the good….Please, look, at the moment you have a salary, you can eat and enjoy small pleasures in life, you are not a taker, so people around your work place just might be very interesting, just because they work within somewhere you dislike, dont discard them for that, would you like it if they did that to you ? All the problems coming your way and a repeat performance of last week, could be an opportunity to learn new abilities and something could open up to you due to this.
You see, we close ourselves of from so many things and sadly some of us are totally unaware of this fact, our attitude, our outlook on life is in need of a change if this is the case, if you choose to look into the dark all the time, that is what you will see, darkness and only darkness, we need light to see the great things that are out there for us, we all have bad days and bad situations thats the ups and downs of life, but how we act upon this, will and can make the world of difference, you decide, this is your right and will always be. Why spend a terrible day or week or life, when you can change that, just by your attitude and how you see life, look for the light always, turn downs into ups !! negatives into positives, I had a prime example last week, I had an email from someone who had lost their job, and was not happy at all, I asked if they enjoyed their home, they replied that they never had time for that or for their children,that work took those pleasures away, so to me it was obvious, what a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the comfort of their home, see to those silly little changes they wanted to do and never had time, and to really enjoy the time to spend with their children and family . Although they will have to look for another job, in the mean time, what a great opportunity to do things people really want to do, this is taking a negative situation into a positive one. It also helps you to change your attitude, if you are looking for a job, under stress and a bad attitude, it shows, it will let the darkness out and people pick up on that, now if you are happy (children, home, hobby etc.,) your daylight will be shinning bright, your attitude is balanced and your job hunting will bring far better results. So make your Mondays, and everyday a great day, live in the light.
