How To Beat The Monday Blues…

my.opera.com

As I was driving to class one Monday morning, I couldn’t help noticing an old, subconscious pattern in my mind, one that affects most of us: Monday Blues.… Even the funky-dance music on the radio didn’t do that trick Friday can. In fact, Monday blues feel like the exact opposite of TGIF excitement.

I investigated this phenomenon. Mondays feel like climbing a mountain, with map instructions and prepared rucksacks of supplies and tools for our journey: We wake up early for work, dive into family responsibilities and are swamped with all sorts of duties. Fridays feel like being on top of the mountain, we can rest, enjoy the view and we can feel our achievements.

Is there anything we can do to make Mondays feel like Fridays? How can we bring that excitement and freedom into Mondays? 

We could change our mindsets, our thoughts. We could transfer the exact emotions and thoughts of Friday’s into Mondays. Even if we are not capable of a similar freedom, we could create one for Mondays. Like they say: ‘ Same same, but different!’

For example: We could imagine our work place like a kids playground and our colleagues are our ‘friends’ whom we adore and eager to play with. We could imagine that our bulk-load  of responsibilities and tasks are our tools to play  and build sandcastles with. We can ‘trick’ our mind and create our own reality of fun and excitement!

If only life was that easy! But hey, anything is possible. Find ways to change your Monday blues into Monday bliss. We are not here forever anyway, we might as well be playful and enjoy the ride!

Interesting thought: Imagine living your life like you live in a hotel. Nothing belongs to you, you only have yourself and your luggage. You are the one responsible for paying your own bills (life responsibilities) and creating your day (all choices are up to you). Then when you finally check out, you leave with only yourself (your soul) and your luggage (karma)! 

Not all who wander are lost….

Are you one of those who judge others who live life slightly different from what society tells us? Are you jealous someone else is living a life you are too scared to live? Can it be that you fear change…What keeps you from living your full potential?

We live in a competitive society and it drains us, stresses us and turns us all into nodding, winding puppets. We need to achieve, meet expectation, compete, succeed and collect as much money as possible, before we die… I say: stop!

Live your life now. One life, so get lost and wander. This is our chance now. Let’s create a new way of living and ditch the traditional, controlled lifestyle. Lets be original and true to ourselves, whatever it is. Your way is not my way, but living your truth is priceless.

Knowing all will be well, is the key to trusting yourself and the universe. I am living that now, finally! So join me, on a ‘lost’ journey of true happiness  and authenticity 🙂
