I was looking for quotes and some of the Monday quotes are “I hate Mondays” ” Monday – Nothing a shopping spree can’t mend” “Monday- why are you so far away from Friday”…
That speaks a lot about the joy we have in our jobs. Most people with the traditional workweek hate going there after the weekend and on Wednesdays they’ll look forward to Friday.
I have been there, it wasn’t fun and if most of the people think like this and work like this, there’s something deeply wrong.
When I was working freelance and weekends too, I never felt like this.
When I was in a job I loved, I couldn’t wait to start on a Monday.
Why do we deprive ourselves of the joy, life brings, of having fun, of being optimistic?
I think we learned as children that “work is hard” “you have to have a job, no matter if you love it or not” or “it’s always been like this”.
Our parents didn’t know better, but you can – if you want to – change your beliefs and have a joyful worklife.
How about making a gratitude list, list three to five things you are grateful for in your life and especially at your workplace.
Look out for the parts of your work you enjoy, and do the things you really hate – that dreaded phone call, the boring meeting – first thing in the morning.
If you really hate Mondays and your job then look out for a new one. Life is too short to stay in a job you hate – no matter what economy – and imagine how it would feel to love Mondays.
