T.G.I.M. – Thank God its Monday!

   Are you crazy you say? Thank God its Monday!

Have you lost your mind?  Who’s glad they have
to dig into a whole week’s work? Who’s glad for
tons of responsibilities? Who’s glad for mountains
of Headaches? Are you nuts?

     Well yes I am crazy and sometimes it helps.
And nuts and GUTS rhyme, so There ya go!  Now
that I have logically defended my position. Prepare
yourself, This week we are going to talk about having 
GUTS in daily life. And just so happens we are going to 
start today: Monday.

     Some people only live for a happy hour or some
other anticipated “magic moment to live.” Yet, I 
think we all know on some level that the magic moment
is now!  But how do we get that knowledge, not just to 
be nice sounding words on a page, and turn it into
the real thing in our lives?  Thats the acid test. 

     So we are going to work on this project together 
this week; 
starting today. Here we go.

     Say after me [literally] “Thank God its Monday.”
Say it in the mirror until you can make yourself 
mean it. Or until the image staring back looks so 
unbearably funny saying it, that you can’t help 
but laugh. Either attitude is a good posture to send
you out the door in a better frame of mind, on a
Monday morning.

     Go for it. Try it.  {Oh & you have to smile for it
to work, whether you feel like it or not}.
     Can’t make yourself feel it? Put shaving creme
on your nose & try again. (Yes, while the creme is
still on your nose. While you are still talking to 
yourself in the mirror). Yes, Do It Now.

    Ok! Ok! I get it. You don’t like to be nice to 
yourself on a Monday morning. Then try the drill
sergeant approach, yes in the mirror. 

Smack yourself real hard on the left cheek and order 
yourself to smile. — Didn’t work? Then Smack 
yourself real hard on the right cheek and order
yourself to smile. — Didn’t work? Repeat, until
you smile, to keep from having to smack yourself
      This guy is ludicrous, you say. Maybe. But the
deal is that you have to do something to make 
yourself snap out of the Monday morning blahs.
If you want to find the joys and treasures of life
during the week, you need to start on Monday morning.
     Try to literally thank God this morning. Yes, 
thank Him out loud. Hard to keep a stinky attitude

and thank God genuinely.

     If Your Attitude & Approach is better; your day

will be better.

    Try It!

Thank God Its Monday.

    If you need a little comic relief today. Or as Zig Ziglar used to say “a checkup from the neck up.” This article I previously wrote could be just the medicine you need. Thank God it’s Monday!
