My spirit has been checked this morning.
You see I really am not a big fan of Mondays. For me it means the end to the weekend at home with my husband, doing the things I enjoy, staying up as late as I want to, being with the people I love....you know..all that stuff.
So I carry a dread of the Monday morning. Then this morning I get on my facebook account and I see everyone writing things like "Yahoo it's Monday!" or "I love Mondays, they are a blank slate"...and I thought.............really!?!?!?!?!?
I went on to read a status update that I liked so much I borrowed it and posted it on mine.
"He who neglects the present moment throws away all he has." J. VonSchiller
Lord, help me not to dwell in the past or yearn for the future. Instead help me enjoy every moment of THIS day - the only April 19th 2010 I'll ever have....
As I flitted off to get ready for my day those words sort of mulled around in my mind and I realized how very guilty I am of thinking one thing and living another.
You see I would be the first to tell you to live in the moment, to enjoy what you have, what you are doing, who you are with. And yet here I am dreading one of the days God has so lovingly blessed me with. So, I don't like having to interrupt my flow of projects and writing and hanging out with my husband....I still have a life to be thankful for, a job to be grateful for!!! I must enjoy and appreciate every moment of my life, whether I am doing what I love or what I must.
Oh, I know there is a message in there too. That we should find what we love and find a way to do that for a living. But that is a whole other story and not what I am referring to right now. I am referring to a simple attitude adjustment. Just like I go to the chiropractor to get my spine adjusted, today my attitude needed a little adjusting so that I might be in alignment!!!!
Soooooo, in conclusion let me say..........YEA MONDAYS!!! It's a MONDAY FUN-DAY, no matter what I do, no matter where my work takes me today, no matter how stressed and frazzled I might get in the matter of a Monday. It is a day to be thankful for and to praise God about!!!
How about you? How do YOU feel about Mondays? Tell me all about it, you know I will understand!!
Lots of love, blessings and fun moments for you on this monday.
May God richly bless you and may you treasure the life you have been given.
Til the next time!
