My good friend Lauren – who writes this amazing blog about searching for love in NYC – just posted something I made 8 years ago on her blog. It’s a sign I made her in Freshmen Year to remind her not to hate on Mondays. (Yes, I know the picture is sideways. Life goes on.)
“Mondays are days too! Cuz you can’t go thru life hating 1/7 of every week!”
I look at Mondays as another day in the week. Another part of the adventure. But sometimes it’s hard to keep true to that philosophy, so I do “crazy” things on Monday — just something outside my normal routine. These range from bringing in Munchkins to work, to making a point to have lunch somewhere different, to having something special to look forward to that night.
Last night I made a point to watch a movie at home, and I rented Hot Tub Time Machine. Not a great movie, but pretty good; it had its funny moments. But the point was that it was really fun to watch and added a little pizzazz to my Monday.
Do you do anything different on Mondays to make them more interesting?
