Okay, Monday!

on January 17, 2016

Mondays have repeatedly brought about sad thoughts because the weekend has ended. For some reason, there is dread at the beginning of the new week. Thus, we find ourselves wishing life away every Monday morning in anticipation of an early Friday arrival and the beginning of another weekend. Time to change…


What is it about Monday
That plants the seed of dread
Brings about wrinkles and frowns
Where smiles should be instead

What happens in morning time
To incite Monday blues
After all the night before
Beget such cheerful views

When daylight shifts to Tuesday
Happier thoughts consume
Even Wednesday and Thursday
Don’t portray Monday’s gloom

With each subsequent Friday
Excitement’s in the air
Thoughts of the coming weekend
Share no Monday despair

All too soon we find ourselves
Facing Monday again
We start rush-rushing the week
For Friday to begin

Food for thought…

In trying to rush the week
To reach the next Friday
That only so pushes us
Closer to NEXT Monday

Time goes by too fast as is
Why wish away the days
Time lost is never regained
Get out of Monday’s maze

Okay, Monday, let’s do this
Think smiles, think fabulous
Let the power of Monday
Make the week marvelous

Let the power of marvelous Monday set the tone for smiles, NOT frowns, sending vibes for a terrific Tuesday, wonderful Wednesday, tremendous Thursday, fabulous Friday right on through the wacky weekend ’til marvelous Monday starts the week all over again!

Get rid of this…


Let’s hear you shout this…


Have a GREAT week!

    I love Mondays. It means that I survived another week.

  3. Let’s give it up for RETIREMENT. Monday is no longer a day of dread. Everyday is equally good and bad on its own merits. That’s something, right? – 🙂
