If Monday could be everyday please.


Dave and I

Every Monday morning without fail, my various social media hangouts are inundated with digital ‘groans’ – another Monday!  5 more days ’til the weekend ::::insert sad emoticon:::: There needs to be a day between Saturday and Sunday the people say.

I say – hooray for Monday!  It’s my best, most favourite day of the week.  I’m a sucker for routine, so the weekends of full boy immersion, unpredictability + spontaneity get my OCD a little stabby ya know?

Mondays bring the chance to shake off any disappointments of the week before, to hone the to-do lists and set some goals for the week ahead.  I struggled over the weekend and couldn’t wait to go to bed and put Sunday {and the entire WEEK} to rest.  I felt depression breathing down my neck for three days, finding joy had become difficult and I was surely spreading none of my own joy amongst my lovely little family.

But Monday came and helped blow the cobwebs away.  

I thought and I thought about some of the potential triggers that had dragged me down; comparison, financial stress, this blog {!} and procrastinating.  All of these things are, thankfully, easily remedied with a little ‘let it go’ and ‘shake it off’ therapy.

So, today is Tuesday and I’m going to rock it like it’s Monday!

Have a great week everyone x

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
