I know the title of my blog may be a tad bit dramatic lol. However, we can all admit most Monday’s are not so pleasant. We have to go back to our jobs from our two day weekend. When in actually, it’s really a one day weekend, because we stay in the house on Sunday to get ready for work on Monday. So we’re really only enjoying Saturday (and that’s if you don’t work the weekends).
I decided to call today motivational mood day, because I’m personally moody every Monday lol. We tend to take a break from work-life on Saturday and Sunday, and when Monday comes around we’re irritated. I think it’s partly because we didn’t have enough time to enjoy our weekend or we weren’t able to get around to the things that we wanted to take care of.
I’m writing to say, don’t let the funk of Monday’s get you down. This is a new week to set personal goals and to do that thing you didn’t do last week. If your goal is to lose 5 pounds by the end of the month. Start Monday off by eating breakfast, and drinking about a half gallon of water throughout the day. Instead of taking the elevator, take the steps. Take it one day at a time and one step at a time, and you’ll eventually see the 5 pounds come off.
I know I like to set work goals for myself daily. We have surveys that our customers fill out everyday, and I aim to get at least all 5’s on my surveys. I ask God for knowledge in the morning and how I can improve my skills to assist my customers.
I recommend saying a prayer at the beginning of your week and allow God to help you reach the goals you set. Here is something along the lines I ask God in the morning: Lord, I would like to first thank you for allowing me to see another day. I know the next day isn’t promised to the next person, and I am grateful to be alive today. You said ask for guidance and when I lack the knowledge you would fill me with all of the tools I need to fulfill my obligations. I ask that you give me the strength and the right words to assist my customers with their concerns. I ask that whatever you have planned for me today, that I fulfill that purpose. In Jesus name, Amen.
That is just something along the lines of how my prayer goes in the morning. I’m here to tell you that whatever you want to accomplish this week or next week, don’t give up! Don’t let anyone tell you cannot do something, because God says other wise. Even if you cannot see the end of the road or the end of the week, just keep going. I promise you hard work pays off.
I’ll leave you with this. Would you rather sit around and make excuses for the reason why you’re not reaching your goals (fitness, health, work, personal goals, etc.) and let life pass you by, or do you want to stop making excuses and go after what God has for you? You only get one life to live, so make it count!
