I’d like to say that I’m starting this week with a snap in my step, with ready-to-tackle it spirit. I’d like to say that, but I can’t because I’m not.
Nope, it’s one of those Mondays. We all have them, when the week stretches ahead of you, and no shiny bits in the whole lot. Monday is Monday, and it arrives no matter how leisurely or hectic a Sunday you had (for the record, mine was leisurely. You’d think I’d be more Monday ready).
So should it matter how it is we’re feeling about Monday? Sorry to lump you in with me here, you could be all bright-tailed and bushy-eyed, raring to go, with your to-do list halfway done by now. You could be taking a very productive break, perusing the blogs as you sip your measured dose of caffeine or water or whatever, cheerfully almost through your most odious task of the week. You could, in short, be my wishlist version of myself, and good for you. Please don’t trip on the jealousy on your way back to the other half of your list.
Oh well. Enthusiasm doesn’t factor into it, not really, when you think about it. It doesn’t much matter how you feel about getting things done, it’s just the getting them done.
At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.
