I came up with the idea to write a blog category called Monday Motivation, because I’m usually tired on Monday mornings and need something more motivating than the buzzing sound of my alarm at 6:30 a.m. to get me ready to tackle Monday! Fortunately, there is the wonderful first cup of coffee that helps open my Monday morning eyes, but that is usually just a quick fix.
Believe it or not, I’m usually told by most that I’m a positive person. However, when I’ve had a busy weekend, or played a round of golf on Sunday my body is sore on Monday morning and I’m grumpy. I thought it was only me, but have confirmed that it’s not. For the past couple of Mondays, I’ve intentionally commiserated with a handful of co-workers who are also Monday morning grumps! It was disturbing to realize that I wasn’t alone in my Monday morning misery. Then I decided that if there was going to be a change, it would have to start with me. That’s when I decided no more being Ms. Grumpy-Pants. Instead, I’m looking for reasons to be happy and an inspiration, ergo Monday Motivation!
Today is Memorial Day. What better day to be grateful. I take a moment and appreciate all of the soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, in serving the U.S. I am grateful that I got to sleep in and look forward to spending the day with my family at a local fiesta in Hermosa Beach.
