Have you seen the commercial? The one where there appears a sliver of light, and immediately people start jumping out of their beds, old and young alike, grabbing the nearest weapon, and start running up the street. Running as if their life depended on it. They come to an edge and the sun starts rising and they are defeated. They could not stop the sun from rising. The motto/line is "Don't fight Mondays". I have no idea what it is advertising.
My panic begins on Sunday afternoon or evening. If we are out somewhere, I need to leave early to ensure I am ready for Monday. Did I complete my homework? Do I have all the changes of clothes necessary, clean? Do I have "things" ready for my classes at work? Is there food in the house? And it goes on. By the evening, I'm not in the best mood, a little on edge, a little cranky.
Like those in the commercial, Monday morning I wake before my alarm, keeping my eyes closed until it goes off, willing myself to sleep just a bit more. Don't fight Mondays! I'm going to try to get up when I wake and learn some meditation or just go sit in the hot tub. But unlike those in the commercial, once up I'm excited, willing to embrace the day, long though it is. It's going to come no matter what and I'm going to make the best of it.
Here is my schedule for Mondays:
8:20 leave house
eat lunch in car
12:30-3:30 Health and Spanish
3:30-6:30 - eat dinner somewhere where there is wireless so I can do homework
6:30-9:20 Physical Fitness class
Today, Mary opened our class with some guided meditation type stuff, sitting in a chair, upright, eyes closed, focus on breathing, relaxing, releasing. It was awesome! I really love this class.
