Day 78. What Colour is Your Monday?

I have not always liked Mondays. When I worked full-time, it was wonderful to have the weekend off, but how hard to get back into the swing of getting up early, facing traffic, and settling down to the routine at a desk on Monday morning. I found myself, along with a whole bunch of other people, feeling the blues... on Blue Monday.

Then I heard someone years ago say when we decide to have a Blue Monday, it translates into the fact that we're in actuality spending one seventh of our lives in a state of depression or unhappiness or moodiness.

Oh my, what an eye opener for me. Looking at it from that perspective, I knew that's not how I wanted to spend any part of my life. I changed my attitude and began to look for ways to celebrate my Mondays. I started living my life more beautifully.

Wishing you happy Mondays,


  1. I love Monday, it is the beginning of a new week. I always think I have a whole week ahead to get a lot accomplished. It doesn't always happen but I can try again next week

  2. My monday is red as I'm frustrated trying to figure out how to print off and lay out our poetry book so we can copy it....need more info and technical help. But i'm learning new things.

  3. It feels PEACH! The landscape has sort of a soft, golden peach glow to it.

    The air is a gentle warmth, and my mood is well.... peachy.

    It was fun thinking of how to color my day. Thanks for the thought.

  4. Thanks to each of you for taking the time to share your Monday thoughts. And, Lin, I hope you get it all figured out.
