Monday Motivation

When the dawn breaks and a new week begins, we search for hope, purpose and Monday motivation. The weekend is gone and we look forward to the next one. For some archaic reason, we feel like this a new beginning. The truth is, it is just another day.

But every day is special. For many of us, it takes a long time to learn this. Some of us learn it the hard way through illness, or loss of a loved one. Most of us just pass through the day without appreciating how lucky we are to be alive. Life at its best is fragile, and it can be taken away in a blink of an eye.

Today, instead of looking for that Monday motivation, just stop and take a deep breath. Fill your lungs with fresh spring air and look around. Pay attention to the light, and how it paints the world around you. Look at nature and how the season is coming along. Listen to the sounds of the city waking up, and try to hear the music within it. Today can be a great day if only allow it to be that. Have a great Monday.
