It’s Monday.. Yeah, I know Monday is ‘THE DREADED DAY’ to most of you. I used to hate Mondays too! Thankfully (Thankful?! Oh really now? *crickets sound*), my schedule now is different. I rekindled my relationship with Monday long time ago.
I go to work 6 days a week. Friday is the new weekend to me. Yup, only one day. So people, please be grateful if you have two days off and amazing long weekends every freakin* month! I don’t have those.
How to move on from Monday? Motivate yourself! Think about your plans. Isn’t it exciting that when Monday comes, it means one day less until your most awaited date? It could be a weekend getaway, a dream trip you’ve been planning for months or years, or a special occasion that makes your heart flutter.
When I feel the Monday blues (well, it’s Saturday blues for me now ), I list down all the things I want to do in a month or two. And never accomplish most of them.. How inspiring, right? But it’s not the point. Realizing what you want to do makes you excited everyday.
Here are some of the things I’m most elated about:
- Going home to my family and friends! Yey!!! Seeing them is the one I’m most ecstatic, elated, euphoric about that I can’t stop counting down the days.
- Trip to one of my favorite cities! ❤ *fingers crossed* ♫So love me like you do, love me like you do. Love me like you do, love me like you do♪ (My friend said she will play “Love Me Like You Do” in the background when I meet someone special during this trip. *giggles* *blushes*. So if you are reading this and you hear that song when we meet, it means you’re that someone special.. Haha!)
- Christmas and New Year! There’s nothing like being at home for Christmas Holidays. *Cue: ♫Cause this year (this year). I’ll be home for Christmas♪*
- Other plans: brush up my driving skills, refresh my talent in playing the keys (I had piano lessons when I was a kid and the only song I can remember now is “Tug of War”), and take seriously my urge to become fluent in at least one of the three foreign languages I’ve been meaning to learn since the stone age.
If I’d be honest with myself, I don’t think my “other plans” will come to fruition. I know I will just laze around during my whole vacation; watch movies & tv series, go here and there, food trip, and enjoy home sweet home.
Basically, these are the few things that make me look forward to each and every coming day.
Hi there, Monday!
But first, coffee.
