So, Monday is typically the worst day of the week for most people. For me, Monday has never been too terrible since my official work week doesn’t begin until Tuesday, but once Tuesday rolls around, I’m lost in the weekday blues.
As a way to fight against the drudgery of real life, I have decided to make Monday my day of motivation, my chance to give myself some positive reasons to be, well, positive for the rest of the week. I plan on trying to do some sort of motivation post every Monday to jump start my week.
We shall see how long this lasts.
To start, here is my list of 5 (reasonable) goals/”to do’s” this week to help give myself some focus:
1) Figure out budget until at least the end of the month. The most boring and uninteresting of all my goals this week, but a must. July 4th is coming up and I do not want to have to settle for an indoor “staycation.” The worst.
2) Lose at least 2 lbs. Also, not exactly fun, but if I don’t, my Sunday post will be essentially non existent.
3) Find a new place to live. My lease is up in June and I’m not a fan of outdoor living, so I don’t have much of a choice.
4) Finish Chapter 7 of my novel. Far more fun and not quite as tedious as it may sound. I’m already halfway done but have been screwing around on the inter-webs instead of writing. Damn kitty videos…
5) Find a psychiatrist. Not quite crazy yet, but I’m only a few bad days away from becoming the next Aileen Wournos.
Yeah…if I start making faces like that, I’ve reached the point of no return.
6) (I know, I cheated, but its my rules so I do what I want.) I need to update my resume(s). Its time to start seeking for other work. When you find yourself sitting in the parking lot before your shift desperately hoping that this scratch off will be the winner, its time to give it up.
I am also going to include one reminder of something that makes me happy. I am currently a part-time Communication Assistant at the Macon Arts Alliance, where I interned this past semester. They liked me enough to pay me, that’s definitely something to smile about.
Lastly, a little mantra/thought to anchor myself this week:
Take that Monday!
