Why are Mondays so difficult? I ask myself every Sunday night, when I accidentally start thinking about the next day. It’s hard to wake up, it’s hard to get out of bed, it’s hard to prepare myself for a day of work, and it’s hard to do that day of work. I get so used to lazing around the weekend (or am so busy not lazing around that I miss the actual weekend), so facing reality on a Sunday evening is never great.
The thing is, life would be a lot more pleasant if I didn’t dread Mondays so much. A big reason why Mondays are hard is because of my attitude towards them. Really, it’s just another day, not unlike all the others. My goal for the next few weeks is to think positively about Mondays (gah. Even just typing that left a sour taste in my mouth…). I need to get better about looking at the bright side of life, and I think I should start with Mondays.
On Mondays, I get to meet with the Bible study group I’ve been meeting with for a year now. I love this group, and I love the conversations we have. We dig into Scripture, learn together, and encourage and strengthen each other. I’m excited for that. Mondays are good because that’s when we meet. I can be happy today and enjoy today, because I’ll end it doing one of my very favorite things: studying God’s Word.
